external emergency stop paddle wiring

Post by wilsonedw » Sat May 21, 2022 3:56 pm

I am trying to wire in an emergency stop paddle between pin 23 estop on the breakout box and Pin 25 GND, and when I close the circuit nothing happens. What am I doing wrong.

Check the I/O Settings page to ensure that it is assigned to pin 23.

I checked the manual, in fact all manuals say that Pin 23 is Estop. I verified that the pin that I am using for ground is in fact case ground Pin 19. when I ground it out I get nothing, do you have any solutions that might fix it? I am using Software update 1.0.3 with a box that is about 2 years old


If I am unable to make the software e stop work I will wire it in as a powered hard emergency stop.

Here is a link to the latest manual that describes the programmable I/O on the Buildbotics Controller.

https://buildbotics.com/manual-v1-0-2/#iotab

You must be using the latest software (v1.0.2 or v1.0.3). Otherwise the estop is fixed on pin 23.
