    Can I add switches to both ends of my axis by daisy chaining together limit switches?

    Parallel wiring if you are using Normally Open Switches
    Serial wiring if you are using Normally Closed Switches

    See gnea/grbl

    Thanks! I'm using the xtension switches that normally open.

    The third pin is just for power to the LED right? I can just run that in parallel as well?
