So after much struggle i have managed to get a working base machine, get through the plasma c configurator and can jog my machine with in the plasmac interface. now it seems that it is not recognizing my float switch, i have the float hooked normally closed on the switch and plugged into the third pin on tb3 on my mesa 7i96. The LED lights up on the mesa and turns off when float switch contacted but seems like the software is not seeing it. when looking at the plasmac screen i see where there is an indicator for float switch but it is greyed out. can anyone please tell me what i am doing wrong? I will attach my hal and ini files

You seem to be missing some connections, here is an example:

I don't know.
The Configurator should have put them in.
At a minimum you need arc voltage, float and torch.
You could try running the Configurator in reconfigure mode, that may fix it.

ok so i have set up my machine based on this image for wiring in the hypertherm

can you please help me with what i need to put for the pins for the arc voltage, torch and float switch when running the plasma c configuraor. The only difference in how i wired is that i wired my float switch into the 3rd pin from the right on tb3

I think something like:
Arc Voltage  hm2_7i96.0.encoder.00.velocity
Float Switch hm2_7i96.0.gpio.002.in or hm2_7i96.0.gpio.002.in_not depending on n/o or n/c contact
Torch On     hm2_7i96.0.ssr.00.out-00
