Re: encoder count does not change with Duty/PWM commands

Ok so tested. Switching between velocity & position commands back to duty commands and back. The encoder count just stops counting when a duty command is executing. The counter is will continue to count for both position and velocity from where it left off. The counter never resets to zero.

Re: encoder count does not change with Duty/PWM commands

The encoder stops counting only when using duty commands.

I will test switching between position commands and duty commands and report back the behavior.

The deadzone is set to 25. I am doing a min of 250 resolution steps so that wouldn't be an issue.

encoder count does not change with Duty/PWM commands

If I control a PWM signal (duty command) from either packet serial or the GUI, the encoder count for both M1 or M2 will not change. When a velocity or position command is issued, the encoder counts increment/decrements in the correct direction, so this is not a wiring issue and not a noise issue as ...
