    Ok, so I've finally blown the dust off the boxes and assembled my Bigbox. I've decided to use the Duet 2 Ethernet as controller and I have a mini query which I'm sure many of you guys will be able to answer. I have plugged the IR sensor to the appropriate connector on the Duet, this leaves the Z stop socket on the Duet empty as the Bigbox doesn't have a Z stop microswitch.

    My question is an I correct in my assumptions and my wiring, the Duet wiring instructions doesn't mention this.

    Thanks guys..... Keith

    You are correct. Your config.g will end up with a staement like

    M574 X1 Y1 Z0 S1

    to convey this to the Duet.

    One nice think is after you've got everything else sorted out, you can add a panic button type function by connecting a switch to that unused Z-switch connector and adding the appropriate M581 command to your config.g
