Setting Debounce Level

Description of the problem:

Debounce is the number of pulses that a switch must be stable for it's signal to be considered valid. For example, electrical noise can cause issues with limit switches being triggered. Debounce can be elevated to ignore the noise.


To raise the debounce level, follow these steps:

  1. In Mach3, open Config -> General Config...
  1. Adjust the debounce interval; level should not be set higher than:
    1. Apollo I: 2500
    2. Apollo III: 100
    3. Interpreter 1000: 100
  2. Click [OK] to save changes

In Mach 4, go to Configure>Plugins>HiCON

Change the debounce level to the desired amount, the click Apply and the OK.
