More work on the pendant...
I think I have gone overboard on inputs and I may scale things back a bit.
Here is the pendant when it is powered on and then when I turn on Mach3 (the pendant automatically connects when Mach3 runs).
As you can see, I have a 16 button keypad and 2 small joysticks (each with a center button) connected as inputs. I have also programmed the touchscreen to allow selecting an axis, changing Jog Mode, cycling through the Jog Increment steps, zeroing selected axis, zeroing all and go to zero.
I need to add the spindle speed on the screen as I plan to move to a spindle with vfd.
I actually have more inputs then I know what to do with. I am open to suggestions
