    Hello all...

    I hope some one can help me wit setting up my Touch plate in Mach3 /CNC machine.

    I just started to build my machine and I cane across some strange problems setting up my Touch Plate that I purchased over Ebay.

    This is the touch Plate: Link

    this is my Bord Setup from Ebay. Link

    I connected the Touch Plate to a limit switch port on the board...in Mach3 Imput Signal / Probe Port 1 Pin Number 13.
    in Mach3 page Diagnostics...I see the Digitize signal when touching the Plate with a bit.
    I assigned the Button Auto Tool Zero over Operator over Edit Button Script and tested a few different scripts for Touch plate that I found over the internet.
    But non worked.......
    So the Z Axis is moving down...to find the Touch Plate.......when touching it...it still keeps moving.
    So Mach3 gets no info to stop.....and keeps moving down.

    what is wrong here.....
    Can it be that my Board is not compatible or not working with Touch plates???

    hope some is so kind to help me..
