-End-stops can also be used as Limit Switches ​which prevent the machine from attempting to move beyond the physical limits of the axis (by pausing/​stopping movement when triggered), see the [[http://​smoothieware.org/​endstops|Endstops page]] for details about configuring Smoothie to use End Stops as limit switches.+End-stops can also be used as limit switches ​which prevent the machine from attempting to move beyond the physical limits of the axis (by pausing/​stopping movement when triggered), see the [[http://​smoothieware.org/​endstops|Endstops page]] for details about configuring Smoothie to use End Stops as limit switches.

-In some very rare cases, the endstop reading circuit on the [[Smoothieboard]] will not be adequate for your endstop type.
