Duet ethernet homing failure

Duet ethernet homing failure
November 30, 2017 09:14AM
I have setup a printer Pursa I3 style using duet Ethernet board. I have endstop switch normally closed "bare switches" on X,Y,Z min. Active High signals for all three. All travels have been verified for speed and distance, and no electrical nor mechanical issues exist. However printer will not home any axis properly. The printer will slowly move back and forth a few mm than post error on web interface stating homing failed. This happens with a single axis and home all. Also happens using pronterface and repieter host. M11 S0 is listed in config.g to ensure debug doesn't interfere. All switch states and in good standing, confirmed via led status and machine properties page. Switch state behave as intended when manual manipulated. A G91 than G1 S1 X100 command will bring X 100mm toward the switch and printer will stop at switch using this method. However a G28 command for the same axis will result in 1 of 3 failures. 1st printer won't get past the shakes. Second printer strikes switch, fails to stop. Third printer homes wrong direction. All 3 versions of failure occur randomly with no alteration of any files and no other changes including hardware, wiring. This issue has persisted for 2 weeks with no answer in sight. Firmware has been erased and rewritten to board. Config files download a zip direct for David the co/author of this system. He doesn't seem to understand why failure persists. He has reviewed all me files and machine description. He has stated there is nothing about the machine that would cause this issue. I will post my config file and homing x y z and homeall.g for review. I change anyone who is up to the task to help me with this issue..
