MKS Gen L and Status LED
« on: January 06, 2019, 15:48:24 »

Hello,

In pinmappings.h at MKS section pinout for status LED is 13
//Status Pins:
#define statusPin_Define 13

Is it possible to take another default pin ?
Pin 13 is not available on MKS card.

Thanks.

Ah, I assumed there was an on-board LED. There is on RAMPS 1.4.
I've never found any complete documentation of pin assignments for the MKS Gen L.

Will Digital Pin 31 do you?

Yes, pin 13 is the built-in LED.
But it's not visible when the card is in a box.
Perhaps, you can use pin 11 for an external LED (it's near 5V and Gnd).

Pushed a new firmware version.

This will duplicate display of the status LED onto pin 11 as well as pin 13.

Kind Regards,
Tom.
