Optical Endstop

I am replacing the Gen6 on my 3DSM printer and would like to continue using the optical endstops provided. The problem is that they are 5 pin and the endstop connectors on the smoothie board are only 3 pin. Is there a way to wire up these 5 pin endstops to the smoothie board? Thanks,

Will

you can use the schematics available on reprap for OptoEndstop_2.1

I thought that the end stops for the smoothieboard need to run on 3.3V and it seemed that most of the opto end stops were 5V.

Nah Smoothie outputs 5V on the endtsop connectors.
