A different card, but this example for a 7i76e should point you in the right direction to configure the stepgens

So I'll need to change pins to:
hm2/hm2_7i96.0. IO Pin 000 (01-01[TB 1,2,3 then pin?]): IO Port <(denote function?)
I.E.
hm2/hm2_7i96.0. IO Pin 33 (03-14): net estop-ext

OR
net estop-ext <= hm2_7i96.0.gpio.033.in

I may be confusing the .hal/.ini setup; but I think I'm onto something

You've already run this plasma cnc gambit, IIRC. Did you use the Proma THC?

TB3 pins 1 through 11 = inputs 0 through 10 = gpio 0 through 10, like
hm2_7i96.0.gpio.000.in = TB3.1

TB3 isolated outputs are named ssr like
hm2_7i96.0.ssr.00.out-00 = TB3 pins 13,14

Thank you!
Can you give me an example of how to setup the pins for the motors in the .hal?

So far I've setup a basic line: setp hm2_7i96.0.stepgen.00.??????
What is the designation for step +/- or dir +/-?

The CR11 (INIT) led turns red and stays on after power up the board. The manual says that this could indicate a problem with the FPGA setup; I've not begun to think about using the mesaflash utility, let alone alter the FPGA settings.

This is normal with newer Ethernet firmware, if Linuxcnc has been running so the watchdog is enabled, the red /INIT LED indicates that the Watchdog has bitten.

I've integrated most of the thc components, however the relay output hm2_7i96.0.ssr.00.out-00 causes linuxcnc to say "pin doesn't exist".

Just use halshow to look at your machine configuration and you will see the pin names. Work out which one you are using for your relay. Then it is just a matter of changing your hal file to suit.

An frack... I didn't add the output to the machine hal; probably the problem

Net TorchOn => hmw_7i96.0.ssr.00.out-00 ????

I'm assuming you're familiar with the Toma file. Dealing with networking issues on my Linux machine, otherwise I'd post the files
