Ohmic Sensing for the hardcore DIY'er

Postby rbmgf7 » Tue Apr 18, 2017 7:25 pm

I managed to integrate a CandCNC ohmic sensor to signal my ESS for probing. It's not hard and only $75 if you want the option.

Z-Home wire to +5VDC and COM to your input of choice. Doesn't make sense to me because COM I originally had to Ground and Z-home to the input. Didn't do anything. Maybe mislabeled?

No, Common input on a CanCNC system it was designed for is NOT ground

To the Original Poster, can you explain what type of system you have? I would love to install ohmic on my G540 with LCTHC but I believe I cannot with this torch height control.

ESS running Mach3. Doesn't matter what system you have. If it accepts 5V logic, then it works on anything.
