Controller E-stop

Hey all,
When the E-stop is pressed, does the controller ‘completely’ shut down (as in a power failure), or does it do some sort of soft shutdown (as in ‘just’ the stepper motors)?? Thanks in advance for any replies.

The only things getting power from the controller are the steppers. The router and monitor are powered separately so they can’t be controlled by the controller’s e-stop button. You’ll want to add an e-stop box that all of your power goes through if you want everything shutdown.
