Re: Could you please provide a C++ example

Technically the arduino libraries are C++. You need a serial port library for whatever device(Im guess a PC since you didnt say but did mention the C#)) you are using. With some minor changes and the addition of a C++ serialport library it shouldnt take much to get a C++ program talking to the Roboc...

Re: Commands 65 and 66 seem hobbled.

I plugged in your exact data and it did work. Using the currently available version. This would lead me to beleive the problem is something out side of the raw data. Could be how its being sent? Follow along with what I did: 1. I used RealTerm specifically to elliminate the method of sending the dat...

Re: Absolute position control

Except for changing the encoder type(go to General Settings in IonMotion and change the type(s) to Absolute for the specific motor channel(s)) the Absolute enocder wiring(eg analog POT) information starts on page 56 of the manual and leads into manual tuning and then auto tuning. For packet serial m...

Re: [Solved] Issue with update v4.1.15 not taking.

Yes, I made some minor changes to the chart scaling for the Velocity/Setpoint displays. Sync Motors should disable one slider(motor 2s slider) and use the Mixed commands(eg the dual motor commands) for PWM,Speed or Position depending which window you are in. That way both individual and dual command...

Re: Absolute position control

Im going to assume you want to use an RC signal to control a motors position like a giant servo? If you want to use a different control method(Analog signal,Packet Serial) please let me know. Your post is somewhat limited on info. First thing you need to do is get your motor and encoders wired up. D...

Re: Commands 65 and 66 seem hobbled.

Ok. Now that you are on 4.1.15... 1. The position commands do not take signed speed arguments(absolute speed only, direction is determined by the relative position change. Im just noting this for confirmation, since you say you did try a positive speed as well. 2. I moved my M2 motor to 14462 using ...

Re: Potential issue with Position Tuning in IONmotion

Yes, by "individual position commands" I meant 65 and 66. When "Sync Motors" is checked the Mixed version of the commands is used(eg 67 in the Position Settings screen).

Re: Issue with update v4.1.15 not taking.

It appears I fat fingered the firmware number for your model(not sure how since I did a find replace for all the firmware numbers but...). I've fixed that and changed the firmware update window error message so it displays the firmware version it found so this will be easier to diagnose in the future.

Re: Issue with update v4.1.15 not taking.

I'll add some diagnostics to the firmware update window so we can see why its giving you that message.

Re: Commands 65 and 66 seem hobbled.

Ill double check again but I tested position commands on both motor channels before uploading the new release and they worked. This means your problem is probably fixed but needs to get the firmware update working. Note IonMotion uses those commands(the individual Position commands) to run the motor...
