    With the TinyG, once you have homed the machine, and set limits to on, I wonder if you can you use a xis min or max switch to be a reliable E-Stop? I would think this would put the TinyG into alarm and halt all movement?

    Has anyone attempted this?

    Thanks in advance

    I use all the Min/Max inputs for sensors and my Zero plate, I do have an E-stop but it breaks the 24VDC that feeds everything. Instant kill on tinyg, router and air. I just felt is wasm ore positive that way.
