Hello, I've setup my CNC Mill to jog using a MPG Handwheel, I have an image of it attached to this post. The Mesa card I'm using is a 7i76E

Editing the HAL file works, but I would prefer to setup the inputs using PNC Conf. I don't know how to use the External Controls page on PNC Conf, please point me to resources that explain how to use it. I'm using 3 GPIO pins on TB6 to select XY or Z axes, and 3 pins for 0.0001, 0.001 or 0.010 increaments. Is there a way to use PNC Conf to setup those pins, or should I leave them as "unused input" and manually change it? Any help or links to learning resources is greatly appreciated. 

Thanks!

Did you read the help file in pncconf?
External MPG Jogging is briefly explained there.

Then ask any specific questions here.

I see it forgets to mention 'axis selection' pins (for use with one MPG for multiple axes.) but I think you'll get the idea.
