Remote start button
I use a Universal stepper controller board from pico systems and axis UI,
having the same requirement of a physical start button .
will this line work or do i need to modify for my hal?
i'm new to using linux cnc please bare with me if its a silly doubt.

I’ve been using LinuxCNC for at least 10 years on a Hurco VMC and a HardingeHNC. Just never used a separate start button, always used a keyboard. I tried to avoid asking this simple question as not to look dumb.
I’ve met Chris Morley, Andy Pugh, Jon Elson when at Stuart’s place. Hope they don’t see this.
I dont know about Chris or Jon, but Andy will certainly see this.... lol

In Linux I just use M7 and a one second dwell to report that’s it’s completed the move.
I guess M21 on the Haas was made for exactly what I’m doing(third party indexers)
Cool to hear and glad we made you ask questions.
A friend has been at me to use my Arduino indexer and we've included a couple of relays in the design for this kind of interfacing. I'm also working on using a rotary encoder to simplify the user interface. The mods for indexing only took a few minutes to include but the encoder is a whole new world of pain!
