Re: auto tuning

The autotuner is trying to set the optimum values which also will tend to be somewhat jerky. After running the autotuner you can use the sliders under the buttons to adjust how hard/soft the tuning is. Autotune, then slide the slider all the way to the left to set it to very soft. If that is still n...

Re: Full speed command doesn't seem to be 32767

The PID values can probably be alot higher but if they work well for your requirements then you shouldnt change them. In most cases I see the P value in the 10s or even hundreds and the I values is usually about 1/10th the P valie. D in velocity only can almost always be set to 0 but .25 is so low i...

Re: 2x60 version 4 will not enter bootloader mode

If holding the mode button while powering on the board will not get the board into bootloader mode then yes you should send it in with the older V3 board and we will update them.

Send it to our contact address and include your return address inside the box.

Re: Older version of library/software?

The mode button may be sticking on that second board causing it to go into bootloader mode. Let me know if you still have problems with it. You may want to re-update the firmware on it to see if that prevents the looping.

Re: Command to read both encoders at once?

Correct. It returns two long values(8 bytes plus the CRC16).

Re: 2x60 version 4 will not enter bootloader mode

If the board will not automatically go into bootloader mode from IonMotion, you will need to force it. Hold the mode button down while powering on the board. The 3 LEDs should begin to cycle in sequence. Then you can connect the board to the PC and open IonMotion. Click the Firmware Update button. T...

Re: Older version of library/software?

The non-USB boards would need to be sent in to be updated(eg just the 2x5A boards). The USB boards need to be checked they have the bootloader(pre 4.0 firmware did not). Hold the mode button when powering on the board. The LEDs should start to cycle in sequence if they have the bootloader. If so you...

Re: unable to install ion motion software

Thanks for letting me know. We removed the refrences to the PowerPack but there is apparently still somethign in the installer that wants it. It difficult to debug because we dont have any old systems to test it on(all new OSs already have the PowerPack) so we had assumed just removing the reference...

If you would like a beta copy email me at support@ionmotion.com and I'll send you a link to download it. Otherwise we will post in announcements when the new releas...

Re: Update 3.1.1 firmware

A minimum of v4 firmware is required for updating through USB. You will need to send that board in to have the firmware updated. After that you will be able to do it yourself on future updates.
