    Default What is the command SC?

    I find on my cu butt files from Aspire the command SC followed by 1,1 or 1,0 but I can not find it listed in the command listings.

    SC is clear user variables. Are you sure you're not seeing SO,1,1 which is set output 1 to on and SO,1,0 which is set output 1 off. This is normally used to start router or spindle.

    Ken is partially correct. [S] [L] is clear user variables. You probably have the [S] [O] which does turn a spindle or router on (or off depending on 0 or 1).

    [S] [C] may be a legacy command that set to single step mode. Hasnt been used in a long time

    If you're looking at the file in the ShopBot editor you might find that what you think is SC is in fact SO.

    The font used in the editor makes a capital O look like a capital C.

    AS Gary says the SO command is used to switch the outputs. SO,1,1 usually turns the spindle on and SO,1,0 turns it off.

    Default it is SO

    Thanks all-when I look closer is see the very light part of the O. Thanks all
