Mach4 General Discussion / Re: Strange occurence in Mach 4

Native34,

I just found this thread in our forum in which you state that you could not get support for us for tuning the servo.  I am not sure you reached to us, but we have a ticket system and you can open a ticket with this and we will give you a hand:

The problem you are having is a tuning issue and the advice you have been given here is right on.
Here are other resources that may help you:

Steve,

Here it is.

I had to add the .txt so it would allow to upload it.

Steve,

It looks like PMC is still not doing calculations with decimals:

Steve,

I cannot find that built.  I am looking for it in the Development Versions Folder: ftp://ftp.machsupport.com/Mach4/DevlopmentVersions/

Steve,

Do you have any thoughts on this?  We could also move it to lua if you think PMC is not going to be the tool for this.  We wanted to make it in PMC as we did one like for Mach3 using the brains that became very popular as it was very intuitive and easy to use, so users were able to do further implementation to it.

Steve,

I am now able to read the encoders in the ESS.  THANKS!!!

I ran into a new issue.  I cannot use decimal points on PMC.  I need to do an operation where I multiply the encoder count by a multiplier to get the actual motor potion.  But he operation is truncating decimals.

I did an small sample that probably illustrates the problem better.  I am just diving 5 by 2 to get 2.5, but the simulation only shows 2, truncating the .5.

Let me know if you have any thoughts on doing this.

Steve,

Thanks...  Yes, I agree with you, it should be the ESS, we all hope that someday it will be able to process this in real time.

When do you think it will be available?

Steve,

We need to read the motor encoder to compare it with commanded position when motor speed =0.  To alert the user if an axis has lost its position.

I guess it can be done in a lua script, but thought a PMC would have been easier for users.

Let me know if you have any thoughts on doing this.
