Re: Position Control jitters around target position

If you still have hunting around the target position this can be caused by backlash in the geartrain as well. You can set a small amount of deadzone in the position PID settings. 2 to 5 in most cases.

Re: readcurrents not working well

You need to test your connection. Use the ReadVersion example. If you cant read the version you don't have it wired correctly. Test a single unit NOT in multi-unit mode. Does that work? If yes your problem is in your multi-unit setup. Assuming that is the case provide a picture of your multi-unit wi...

Re: readcurrents not working well

Did you understand what I meant about the PPM. I assumed it was for a remote receiver. It most likely uses interrupts. It WILL affect software serial communications. It may not be the cause of your ReadCurrents problem but it will effect software serial randomly. You will most likely need to use har...

Re: readcurrents not working well

When you post code please us the code brackets. Just select the code and click the (</>) button to add them. I've added them to your post already but in the future please use them. Please submit the simplest program you can that reproduces your problem. Also what is PPM.hpp? Is that code to read an ...

Re: E Stop Status on Basic Micro Motion Studio

If you only need one E-Stop pin I recommend using S3. But otherwise glad to hear you got it.

Re: Motor Position based on Serial Command

As I said, the buffer argument(the last argument in the command is either 0 or 1. 1 Means any running commands are stopped and that command runs immediately. 0 means that command will run when any commands previously executed finish for that motor. Yes, the M1M2 position command looks correct, but I...

Re: Motor Position based on Serial Command

If the buffer argument is set to 1 the new position command will happen immediately. If the buffer argument is 0 the command will be buffered and run in the order it was received.

Your example line of code has it set to 0 so it will be buffered.

Re: E Stop Status on Basic Micro Motion Studio

If you are using Packet Serial mode you need to set S3 to something other than Default. S3 defaults to a latching E-Stop when in packet serial mode. If any pin is set as a latching E-Stop ALL E-Stop pins will be latching. It will not let you have a combination of latching and non-latching E-Stop pin...

Re: enclosure for roboclaw and batteries

Heat from the batteries is probably not an issue. Also with lead acid I wouldn't worry too much about them getting too hot from ambient either. It is more important to keep the controller cool. The hotter it gets from ambient the less power it will let you use. I'd also recommend shading the box som...
