I’m trying to hook up a rotary encoder. Arthur suggested using;
From smoothieware.org-slash-configuring-smoothie, the exclamation point means an inverted pin,
but what does 0.15 refer to?
I tried looking at other config entries from ConfigSamples-slash-Smoothieboard-slash-config,
in an attempt to try to decipher the numbering convention.
# Stepper module pins ( ports, and pin numbers, appending “!” to the number will invert a pin )
alpha_step_pin 2.0 # Pin for alpha stepper step signal
alpha_dir_pin 0.5 # Pin for alpha stepper direction
alpha_en_pin 0.4 # Pin for alpha enable pin
alpha_current 1.5 # X stepper motor current
Does this mean that 2 of the alpha ports are on port 0, and one each on ports 1 & 2?
When I look at the smoothieboard pinouts, the alpha driver is on JP7, and JP7 has only 4 pins.
I don’t get it. Any help would be appreciated.
