Does the v3.0 of the x735 still work with latched/toggle switches? | Geekworm

Does the v3.0 of the x735 still work with latched/toggle switches?

  • Going from v2.5 to v3.0 of the x735, the 4 pin header appears to have repurposed pins 3 & 4 from "Using external latching switch" to "PWM fan is controled by GPIO, need to install script". Does this mean latched or toggle (on/off) switches are no longer supported? Thank you.

  • So I see on the Update notification, "Remove the latching switch connector(the latching switch is no longer supported and replaced by a XH2.54 5V OUT connector". The reference to XH2.54 5V OUT connector mean that a latched switch is supported? If so, how? Not sure how a 5V OUT would indicate a latched switch. If not, then that means I need a momentary switch, correct? Your switches are pretty, but I wanted a switch with a cover, so it could not be accidently pressed. Thank you.

    XH2.54 5V OUT connector also not support the latched switch(it’s 4pin connector). If you want to use an external switch, it is recommended that you buy a momentary switch.  But we don't have a switch with a cover. 

  • I decided to go with Geekworm's momentary switch and I found a "DaierTek 16mm Dustproof Safety Push Button Switch Cover Guard Plastic Protector" cover on Amazon, which I hope will work with your product. Thank you!

    Geekworm switch size is 19mm, I think 16mm Switch Cover should not fit it.

  • Alas Lisa, you are correct again <sigh>. The covers and button arrived this afternoon and it does not fit. I recently bought some transparent filament. I will try to design and print a larger one. It probably won't look as good, but better than accidentally shutting down the CNC. Thank you.
