    SMC5-5-N-N Chinese controller - anyone have experience with it?

    I just picked up one of these controllers, and as per usual the Chinglish manual is nearly useless. Seems like a decent controller, but from all my searching I'm starting to feel like the userbase is extremely thin. I've got it hooked up to my x-carve and it's functioning, with the exception of home functionality, and proper functioning of the limit switches. The limit switches work, but forces a reset and you have to manually back the machine off the switch. Wondering if this is normal for this controller. My previous DDCSV2.1 controller didn't do this.

    Why did you change from the ddcsv?

    As it turns out, I didn't change from it. I picked up the SMC5 controller to have expanded functionality and larger screen, but it wasn't really necessary. I ended up getting a new DDCS v3.1 controller instead.
