Thanks for the info Joe
Now I'll have to find out why they left out the
confirmation feature at novoflex. Hopefully I'll
be able to get info on the EOS pinout. By hooking
those contacts up to something, perhaps just a load
resistor it should be doable. I hope so anyway!
But this is all new to me. I'll starty by asking the
guys on the EOS list.
