Have been quite busy lately of course everyone else has been to.

Hope to Get back and start working on some upgrades, I have been wanting to upgrade my inductive Proximity sensors power.
For as long as I have owned my 3D Printers I have operated all proximity sensors with a +5volt source.
I plan to add a optical coupler then supply the correct operating voltage to my Omron TL-W3MC2 driving the correct +5volt for controller operation.
Example shown below.
Do not know if it will change the operation of my 3D Printers, as I believe they are barely outside the operating voltage level now.
