Hi, I'm building my first CNC machine using a 7i76E and it is working well and moving correctly but I am now trying to implement automatic homing using switches and am having some trouble. 
In Pncconf I have Input 0 on TB6 to be Home X and have wired the switch accordingly but every time I try to run the program LinuxCNC terminates with an error saying "Pin 'hm2_7i76e.0.7i76.0.0.input-00' does not exist". The full error is below. If anyone has any ideas about it isn't working I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

Yes TB1 is powered from the 24V power supply

Yes TB1 is powered from the 24V power supply


Is W1 in the correct position.

from the manual:-

GENERAL
Hardware setup jumper positions assume that the 7I76E card is oriented in an
upright position, that is, with the host interface RJ-45 connector pointing towards the left.

VIN POWER SOURCE
The isolated field I/O on the 7I76E runs from a switching power supply that can be
powered by field power or a separate supply (VIN) with ground common with field power.
Normally the 7I76E will be powered with field power and an on card jumper, W1 allows VIN
to be connected to field power. If you wish to use a single power supply for the 7I76Es field
outputs and field logic power, W1 should be placed in the left hand position. This connects
field power to VIN. If you wish to use a separate supply for VIN, W1 Should be placed in
the right hand position.

LOGIC SECTION POWER
The 7I76E can get its 5V Ethernet, encoder, step/dir and serial interface power from
connector P3 or the on card logic power regulator can be used with unregulated DC power
supplied to TB3. When the on card regulator is used, the maximum power available from
the encoder, serial, and 26 pin expansion connectors is 2A total. If isolation of field power
and logic power is not required, a common 8 to 32VDC power supply can be used for all
7I76E power.

I have it in the left hand position because I've only got one power source connected as shown in the connection sheet. Does that seem right?

Yes:

Can you comment the line out with a # so that linuxcnc will start without error.
# --- HOME-X ---
######net home-x <= hm2_7i76e.0.7i76.0.0.input-00

(also make sure that the - is correct type as sometimes it can get the wrong ascii code)

then use halshow to see the of pins
Or

in a terminal:
halcmd show pin

I think one of these is the corresponding pin on Halshow, it doesn't react when I press the switch but on the switch itself there is a built-in LED which does react to the button press.

in a terminal:
halcmd show pin

the pic is showing different pins to  hm2_7i76e.0.7i76.0.0.input-00
so in the hal file try :-
net home-x  <=   hm2_7i76e.0.gpio.000.in

(I don't have a 7i76e to test)

hm2_7i76e.0.7i76.0.0.input-XX and hm2_7i76e.0.7i76.0.0.input-XX-not
would be the correct input pins, GPIO pins are not useful here.

The log shows that the field I/O section is not detected:

hm2/hm2_7i76e.0: IO Pin 010 (P1-07): IOPort
hm2/hm2_7i76e.0: IO Pin 011 (P1-08): IOPort

Are the SSerial interface TX and RX lines that connect to the field I/O section
and should look like this:

hm2/hm2_7i76e.0: IO Pin 010 (P1-07): Smart Serial Interface #0, pin tx0 (Output)
hm2/hm2_7i76e.0: IO Pin 011 (P1-08): Smart Serial Interface #0, pin rx0 (Input)

This may be a power wiring or jumper issue or a problem with the 7I76E card.
Is the yellow field power LED (CR8) illuminated?
