Z axis touch plate

Hi, I have been having trouble with getting a z axis touch off plate to work. I can get it to lower to the plate but as soon as it touches it sets off an error message. And will not complete the action. I have wired it into the board as per the diagram and I am obviously doing something wrong in ugs. I am tearing my hair out trying to solve the problem. Being new to this certainly hasn’t helped.
Greg.

G’day Greg,
Can you provide any more info. Any errors come up?
Please can you post some print out from the console from around the time of the probing cycle?

Hi, after pulling most of what’s left of my hair out, I finally discovered that black wires are not always for negative (apparently Chinese haven’t heard this yet). Retired it today opposite and buggy me it works. Thanks for your concern. Just goes to show when you eliminate everything else, it has to be the problem.

Hi can you tell me how you set it up I have the GRBL AIO Configuration V1-I + board what pins do i use I have looked every where and cant find any think on how to conect it to the board
thank you

I have the same question - where are details on how to achieve this please?

The crickets chirping are deafening…

The photo shows where I wired the two wires to. The arrows point to the terminals. Hope this helps
