Re: Trigger home or reset encoder on each pass

If you are able to (I would really appreciate it), a "Home/Reset Encoder" option would be all that is needed. If the encoder is reset every time it passes home, that would do the trick. It isn't full indexing, but it would allow for positional control.

Re: Trigger home or reset encoder on each pass

Thank you for your swift response! Yes, I would want index functionality to count revolutions. I wanted to implement this on the software end of my device, but I can't because the home status isn't sent when the motor is moving. I could add an Arduino into my project to read the home sensor, but the...

Trigger home or reset encoder on each pass

Hello, I am using the roboclaw for continuous rotation, and there does not appear to be a way to programmatically determine the start and end encoder positions for homing. Basically, the motor is spinning at all times but must jump to a certain angle at times. I have tried to measure exactly how man...
