UNSOLVED wiring an external Estop button to one of these avalable pins ?

  • i have the Duet Expansion Breakout Board. with a couple of empty pin headers:

    heater6_pwm pins

    *H6_pwm (pin 23 )


    E6 is also blank:

    on the board E0 ( all3 pins are free)

    can any of the above pins be used to connect an estop button too, and also with the alarm+ and alarm- pins on the external drivers..
    so if for any reason when the external stepper driver goes to an alarm and stops, the drivers alarm is NO or NC ( configurable ) this signal is connected to the same pin as the mechanical estop button , and when triggered , halts the print and shuts things down

    how do i configure the estop button?

  • i have E1STOP pin set up as the input

    when triggerd the led on the board works

    but nothing happens.

    this is in the config.g:

    M950 J1 C"e1stop"
    M581 P1 T0 C0

  • I did a small write up on external triggers. https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Using_M581_-_External_Triggers_and_Building_a_Control_Panel

    I think at the time, the duet asked for confirmation on estop so triggering it externally wasn't doable but I think they've fixed that so it should work now.

    I looked at your write up on External Triggers, but got a little confused on converting it to version 3.1 .
    I got a lost on the alphabet soup of version 3.1 do you use p , h , j etc .
    So if you have upgraded you could do a version 3.1 example too.

  • @tracar

    stupid question I know , but what version of the firmware are you on ?

    ; External Triggers
    M950 J0 C"!^e0stop"
    M950 J1 C"!^e1stop"
    M581 P0 T1 S1 R1 ;
    M581 P1 T3 S1 R0 ;

    These are my triggers which work.
    The first is connected to the filament run out and the second a switch , both switches are normal open and trigger on closed switches .
    Trigger 3 macro just is a resume button.

    You are on the version 3.1 of the config.g , but what version of the firmware are you on ? use M122

    === Diagnostics ===
    RepRapFirmware for Duet 2 WiFi/Ethernet version 3.1.1 running on Duet WiFi 1.02 or later
    Board ID: 08DGM-95BLL-N6PSS-6JTD6-3SJ6K-K0UZJ
    Used output buffers: 3 of 24 (17 max)

    But if you are on version 3 of the firmware and config.g try adding the !^ which is pull up and invert .
