Yes it's not possible yet. However you may connect two pair of wires in parallel.

I don't mean to hijack the thread but this one seems the most appropriate as it's the same theme.

I wish to use xnsw to measure the time it takes for a user to react to a signal (the signal would be the 'start' control) and place a ball at a certain point (using the laser and a photoresistor as the finish line of the ball (and hence the 'stop' control). Is this possible with xnsw? It seems like there is no way to seperate the start/stop control on the external controls option.

Try this workaround.

It works like charm. Thank you.

I had to set "Skip contact bounce:" to 10 ms. Less than that and I was getting duplicate times for each button press.

I have a new button that I use with the RunScore race-timing/scoring software, but there are times I prefer to use StopWatch. My old buttons, which were wired differently, worked with it, but the new button doesn't. Below is the wiring diagram for the new button. Can it be made to work with StopWatch?

Here is the photo electric beam sensor I am using.
http://www.amazon.com/Enforcer-Indoor-O ... 555&sr=1-3
For snap it is wired to the terminals as shown in the XNSW external control dialog box. It works best to wire the photo cell in the NC position and set the options for snap as on-off in the external control dialog box. Not sure how well it would work for mini moto if there are several participants and multiple laps. It will work great for single rider practice.
