input.xx halui.mode.auto halui.program .run— this is what I needed

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

Just an update:
I called Haas service and they told me where and what their I/O wanted.
Got it up and functioning nicely. Thanks to everyone.

So what gcode are you using to trigger the indexer?
Coolant or an Mcode?

M21 on the Haas turns on an output then waits for the indexer to report its done.
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!
