"x y" are triggers for a roof all stop.
Should be adaptable, there are four relays that can be used to do tasks to open/close/stop/etc.
Sorry for late responses, I have been dealing with family issues that took me away for a bit.
I used magnetic sensors for the roof and IR for scope. The IR can be turned on/off via a relay with some Arduino code mods (e.g. turn on before opening to sense if scope position is safe then off once opened)
