Just because a lot of people agree on something, doesn't make it a fact. ~exxos ~

Now printing 166mm/sec 800accel.





I have been looking at fast and stop switches for days. Opto devices seem incredibly slow along with hall effect switches :( think in this day and age we would have optocoupler is running at nanosecond levels not in the 10 µs range :roll: You can get integrated optocoupler is which run in the nanosecond range but not actual "slotted" optos. Ironically the hall effect ones are just as slow.

I was really looking for something which would react fast turning on and turning off. I thought a Opto would do the job with it being a light sensor, but they are just incredibly slow.

There is too much play leave the switches for them to be any use at all. So the only solution I can currently see, is using a tactile switch with a long pole on top.

Idea being that to solder onto a PCB which would vertically bolt into the extrusion frame. Right Angle with the longer pole for obvious reasons.
