Hi Marissa,

Regarding the limits issue, it sounds like a configuration issue.

Try changing the value of the below output record.  The record only has two values 0, 1 for "Normally open switch", and "Normally closed switch".  Most limit switches are normally closed (value=1) for safety reasons.

DMC01:LIMITTYPE_CMD
DMC01:LIMITTYPE_STATUS

These records change the CN setting on the controller, check out CN in the 4080 command reference.  Do an LD 0 to re-enable the limits, then test again.

Cheers,

Mark
