------------------- Wiring E-stop Buttons and switches - KLM option1 -------------
------------------- Wiring E-stop switch - KLM option2 -------------
------------------- Using older AMC1280USB controller-------------
You can use the older AMC1280USB but it will require some extra wiring and addition of some capacitors and resistors
