How to install E stop

(Brad) #21

In case anyone wanted pictures of the 2.4D board I just received today. As stated no E-stop pins on this board either

Can someone enlighten the community (OK, me) about the purpose of the IDC ribbon cable connection on the upper right of the v2.4d PCB (the last picture)?

Does this parallel the limits, probe pins?

That’s to connect it to a nomad

As the pics show… I have a Green side and an Orange side.

Several posts indicate that the Open Side goes to the E-Stop pins.


My problem…
The only printing on my new E-Stop switch is in Chinese. :slight_smile: Can anyone tell me how I can tell which side of the switch is NO and which is NC???

And once I know which color side is Normally Open… do I connect the two wires to the same color terminals?

My switch looks the same as yours. You can actually see the contacts inside open and close. Mine the green side is N.O. Yes connect to same color.

A million thanks Steve.

Probably best to ring it out with a multimeter to be sure, the one I have wasn’t real clear either. Also does your Carbide board have EStop pins? Mine is a later board and does not, so the best I could do was cut power.

Hey Dan,

Thanks for the note.

My board does have the pins. I bought the E-Stop and a Touch Plate at the same time and picked up the male & female connectors from DigiKey. I’m gonna give it a shot later this week.

Thanks again

Very happy with my new Shapeoko. I do question carbides are not incorporating/offer him a killswitch option. CNC machine even for the most experience machine can be dangerous.

I’m happy with my shapeoko 3 xxl. Ive had it maybe a month or a little longer, I have serious catching up to do. I work nights and loads of hours so I don’t often have time for it but there’s so much to learn! My last project was a vinyl cutter which is still cool but way simpler that this bad boy. I gotta say though, my vinyl cutter program can do matrix copies which is multiple images but carbide create gets a headache and breaks a sweat when I do multiple copies say to rout the same image many times on a single workpiece… But all in all very happy I made the purchase!
