Hi All,

I got some hall effect end stops from Reprapdiscount and have installed one on my z-axis. I'm having trouble getting my z-axis to stop when the end stop is triggered. I can get the sensor to "see" the magnet (the led turns on) but the z-steppers don't turn off when it is triggered on a homing move. I've tried inverting the logic in my firmware (repetier) but the axis won't home at all then. Anybody have these working?

... check for correct pin assignment ... and if the pin has correct pullup-settings ...

Thanks for the advice. Embarrassed to say....instead of connecting to the z-min, I had the endstop connected to the z-max....duh! Now works fine. The only change I had to make was to make the logic in the firmware "true" for the z-endsop.
