The printer has a switch for detecting when it has run out of filament. The print is paused if runout is detected.

For this feature to work, the firmware must support reporting the status of the runout sensor using the M119 command. The sensor must be labeled ros_0. TRIGGERED state defines filament has run out. When runout is detected the Pause G-Code is run.
