Probe Pinout for Board 2.4d/e

(Paul Alfaro) #1

Found details for the Nomad on probe pinout here; https://docs.carbide3d.com/assembly/touch-probe/

However, if using a 3rd party/DIY probe without the fancy LED (5v) I wanted to confirm if I can use the same pins on the board without issue.

If so, which pins are which? (i.e. not 5v)

Pls & Thx

:cry:

Nobody?

Well does anyone know if there’s any harm in connecting a multimeter to the pins while it’s running to find the 5v ? Presume it’ll be fine, but also I have no idea how these things work.

Go here: I’ve posted diagrams. You want the one with the huge cap on it towards the top. Has a line drawing below it that shows the probe pins.

Thanks!

I reached out direct and Carbide tech advised I avoid that plug shown in first image due to the 5v.

He mentioned using a Y connector at the pins used for the built in tool probe. Follow wires from tool probe to the board.

For reference; when looking at the board. Left pin/wire is probe signal, right wire/pin is ground.
