lol...I did not "think it can be NC" ... I just did not know better, now I do (we're not all electrical engineers building sims). For the record, I did read this page, but there is a sentence that says "the push-button type can be either normally-open or normally-closed" and I think I interpreted that as it doesn't matter, but now I have a deeper understanding of the states and how the sim reads those. Some additional clarity on that page would be helpful for the future. The funny thing is, I could have just as easily ordered NO without knowing and it would have worked.
If it's not possible to correct via software, then I will order new NO buttons and update the panel.
Thanks for always being so quick to respond to posts, it's very helpful.
