This Arduino Sketch tests a 3D Printer TL-TOUCH auto leveling sensor for 3D Printers.
Like the one in these links. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_lX6Bwizwk0RzFhTTF2dHhSems/view?usp=sharing
BLtouch VS 3Dtouch 3D Printer bed leveling sensor match up

C:
/* This tests a 3D Printer TL-TOUCH auto leveling sensor for 3D Printers.
 *  It sends a RC servo PWM signal of 10 degrees to lower the test probe.
 *  If the probe is pushed in approximately 0.130", the unit sends a quick positive pulse
 *  on the white wire. No more than 3.3 volts. (That is why pullups on)
 *  The unit will suck the probe in & flash the red light.
 *  Then this sends a PWM signal of 90 degrees to raise the test probe, simulating moving
 *  to another test point. After a delay it lowers the probe again & starts over.
 *  BL-touch may have inverted output so use the attachInterrupt line for FALLING edge detect.
 *  The repeatability on this one ranged about 0.003"
 *  This example code is in the public domain. DNA-Robotics.com 2018
