Wiring Up A VFD Alarm to E-Stop Mach3

Description of the problem:

I would like for Mach3 to E-Stop when a VFD alarm occurs.
 
Solution:
To set this up, follow these steps:
 
     1. Run a wire from A on the VFD to an input on the breakout board (X0 is not available)

     3. Set the input port/pin address used in Ports and Pins to an Input or OEM Trig

     4. Press [OK]
     5. In the MachMotion plugin (under Config -> Config Plugins), set the user defined message to E-Stop and deliver the         desired message when the above specified Input or OEM Trig is activated (ex. "VFD Alarm Fault")
