Next Wave Automation Touch Plate

Post by apopj » Sat Mar 02, 2019 11:53 pm

Hello all,

I recently acquired a brand new New Wave Automation touch plate. I would like to use it with my Shapeoko XXL. I haven't assembled the machine yet (still working on the table for the machine) so this may be a moot point but I wanted to ask. Is there an easy way to use this touch plate with the Shapeoko? While I'm sure the plate and spindle magnet are common to all, the NW touch plate has a three band mini phone plug on the end. Since I have not built the machine yet, I am not sure what type of connector the XXL uses to connect the Carbide touch plate to the control board.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. As a newbie, I hope it won't be too complex....

Thanks to all,

Jeff :roll:
