Revision to Connecting and configuring filament-out sensors

Tony

=== Firmware 1.19 and later ===
 
The Duet firmware has beta support for motion detectionRepRapFirmware supports a variety of different filament presence and motion sensors in version 1.19, see [[Gcode#Section_M591_Configure_filament_sensing|Gcode M591using the [[Gcode#Section_M591_Configure_filament_sensing|M591 Gcode]]:

Pnn Type of sensor:

* 0=none,
* 1=simple sensor (high signal when filament present)
* 2=simple sensor (low signal when filament present)
* 3=Duet3D rotating magnet sensor
* 4=Duet3D rotating magnet sensor with microswitch
* 5 = Duet3D laser sensor
* 6 = Duet3D laser sensor with microswitch
* 7 = pulse-generating sensor

See the [[Gcode#Section_M591_Configure_filament_sensing|M591 Gcode
]] for configuration. Therefull configuration information.

There
are two beta implementationsimplementations for motion detection with direction:

* [[Duet3dFilamentMonitor LaserVersion|Duet3d Filament Monitor: laser version]]
 
Later firmware versions also support simple filament presence switches, and filament monitors that generate pulses as the filament moves.
