Yes. I think custom header and footer is a good idea. It will be a simple option added to the custom post processor in the next version (which I am working on now).

You can use the custom buttons as I mentioned, the default actually has a coolant on and off.

I had a look at port A3 and noticed it has a voltage of 5V. This means my 12V relais will not react on the signal. I have to use an amplifier.

The output is not designed to drive a relay directly. You can use a MOSFET for 12VDC, or an optoisolated TRIAC or SSR for mains power.

I inserted the mosfet and the relay now reacts correctly to a signal of A3. :)
