    5 axis chinese BOB home switch question

    Is there a way to test on the board itself whether the home switches are working. this is on a home built cnc router that I've had for years and just decided to put home switches on it. I just added the spindle to the relay to turn on and off and that works fine. On a side note this is running on cncpro from yeager automation. The attachment is the board I have. Thank!

    For a start. The inputs for home/limits/e-stop & spindle 0-10v output only work if you plug a 12-24v power supply into the 2 connections on the right.

    The 5v in from the usb only runs the outputs to the drivers.
