I just got done setting up the X2 for CNC operation. However I would like to now add limit
, and possibly home
The game plan is to make little steel brackets to secure two limit switches
in opposing directions. Then have angle iron to press the switches. (1 set for each axis)
Now a couple of questions come up in this.
- There is going to be 6 switches, and I plan to wire them together with 22 gauge wire. Now I am not familiar with electronics, but would this create a problem using a couple of feet of wire connecting these switches in series? Such as creating too much resistance, and if that is the case could the resistor be swapped to to make something work?
- Now most limit switches I see use lever switches, why is that? I just see it as closing/opening a circuit so any switch would work. I plan to use these momentary NC push switches
- Home switches would be nice, but I haven't the foggiest as how I would implement them. How would you wire it, how do you get it to be activated at a acceptable tolerance of ~.001"-.002", how can the switch be activated from either side?
Thanks all for reading.
