Proximity Limit Switch Instructions

Thanks for purchasing our inductive Proximity Limit Switch Kit.

The following instructions go over the hardware and software settings required to set up Homing (including auto-squaring of your gantry for dual-drive machines) and Limits with our inductive proximity switches.

The switches themselves are fairly simple, but setting up the coordinated motion of the machine for homing is best done with the following step by step approach.

Step 1: Install Sensors and Cables:
For current PRO CNC machines, the assembly instructions listed below provide machine size specific instructions for installing the physical sensors and cables.

The table below shows the appropriate sensor-to-cable connections for PRO CNC (purchased prior to 2019), Standard CNC, and Benchtop machines. These are Male Straight to Female Right-Angle cables.
