Hello! My name is Justin and I am here to ask for some help on building a program for my cable winding mechanism.

First of all I need it to be able to accurately wind up a certain amount of cable by using an encoder/spool/motor combination all on the same metal shaft.

Second of all the program must be able to consistently wind the wire at that specific length ( ie: if(SensorValue(quad)>3000) )

Third of all the device must be able to be started and stopped by using a switch. They can be two different types of switches say a bump and a limit, but it needs to be able to be started, continuously go, and then if needed to be stopped, and emergency stop button will stop it.

Please help with this program, I have tried everything in my power to come up with one but I can never get the emergency stop to work with the rest of the program.

Tank you !!!
