Connecting a toggle or momentary switch
Connecting the switch
Using a switch is nothing more than connecting the top GND contact and bottom digital input. The picture below shows a push button connection, and also the connections of a toggle switch.
In this case, input #22 is used as input for this, the next step will be setting up the software
The final step is setting up the software. For the example below software version, 4.03.58 was used.
To start the setup go to the setup tab, and click on the 'UIO-10' button.
The next step, is to configure IO #22. This is done by simply selecting the 'Switch' option in the Function 'Function' column for input #22.
When the 'Switch' function is selected two new options will appear. This is related to either what can happen to a switch:
- Switching on / pushing
- Switching off / releasing
It's not necessary to use both, you can use either one or both.
In this case, we configure the input to show the 'Load Job' dialog when pressed.
Do not forget to press 'Save settings' when finished.
