Optical Endstop Firmware detection
Katz last edited by
I'm struggling with the detection of my optical endstop on my duet 2 Wifi.
I have wired 3 of them this way (on x, y and z) :
V -> 3.3v
S -> Signal
G -> Ground
There is only those 3 optical sensor connected to the board.
With power, the optical switch are correctly powered and the red led on top is On
And the LED on the Duet board are also On (and very bright) and when i toggle the switch, both LED on the switch and the Duet turn off.
But when i try to send M119 (with the sensor triggered or not) i get :
Endstops - X: no endstop, Y: no endstop, Z: no endstop, Z probe: at min stop
What i tryed :
Solder a 220Ohm resistor to the R1 Resistor of my switch to get a 100 Ohm average resistor. -> no difference, the LEDs have the same behaviour and same for M119.
Changing M574 from S1 to S0
Connect the sensor differently :
V -> 5v
S -> Signal
G -> Ground
5V taken here :
No difference, the LEDs still works like a charm but nothing more with the M119 command.
I don't think the issues come from the sensor or the duet board but rather on the firmware side because of the LED working normally.
Here is my my config.g :

Thanks a lot if your have ideas to solve this issue, i lost many hours on it...

My endstop definitions look like this:
; generated by RepRapFirmware Configuration Tool v3.2.3 on Wed Feb 17 2021 12:04:29 GMT-0500 (Eastern Standard Time) ; Endstops M574 X2 S1 P"xstop" ; configure active-high endstop for high end on X via pin xstop M574 Y2 S1 P"ystop" ; configure active-high endstop for high end on Y via pin ystop M574 Z2 S1 P"zstop" ; configure active-high endstop for high end on Z via pin zstop

@Katz In my printer I use active high opto endstops on all three axes. I used these because they include a comparator chip to ensure hard on or hard off switching. They work fine with the 3.3V supplied on the endstop connectors on the Duet board, but I had to swap two of the wires on the supplied cables to match the pinout of the Duet board.
My config looks like this:
M574 X2 S1 P"!xstop"
M574 Y2 S1 P"!ystop"
M574 Z1 S1 P"!zstop"
The ! inverts the signal.
Is your Z endstop actually at Zmax?
You should probably update your firmware...
See if this applies to your endstops.

thanks to all of you, you just made my day.
and specially for the "You should probably update your firmware..." from @mrehorstdmd
I was already on 3.2.2 firmware version but in the RepRapFirmware Configuration Tool i have selected 1.21 ... what a noob mistake ^^
@alankilian yes, when i saw your endstop definition, i realisez they were something wrong with mine.
@Phaedrux I have already did this trick but thanks for the tips anyway.
@fcwilt Hi, i don't know where you see me talking about this piece of code :
M574 X2 S1 P"xstop" ; configure active-high endstop for high end on X via pin xstop M574 Y2 S1 P"ystop" ; configure active-high endstop for high end on Y via pin ystop M574 Z2 S1 P"zstop"
But now it works ! Thanks all of you.
