TP thast just the drive list fle, what I am looking for is for you to save your parameters from the file menu and make a par file.

BTW I just looked at the commutation of the Sanyo and it is what AB wants so doesnt look like it is the problem.
Will have a look at the parameters and see if I can find an issue but maybe scoping to see if the signals are correct with wire colours will be the only way.

All looks well in the parameters but I would say to put the offest back to zero and try.
Have you tried to auto tune, the tuning is what I would expect to make a motor run so unlikely its the problem.

The best I can make it do is start to spin and then error out with a commutation error.

In one combo I can make it spin very slow about 120 deg and then error out.

THere are about 360 combinations to try.


AUto tune does about the same thing as run does. IF the motor can't spin up then it can't be auto tuned.  

I dug out the scope but can't find the leads so I will try to get it scoped and see what is what. IF I can remember how to setup the scope(;-) I used to have a young eng in house but he got married and moved out .

Its a strange one indeed, should be a piece of cake to set that up. The pdf shows the commutation is exactly what AB wants or at least as far as I can see it does, same phases same halls for those phases.
Only thing I can think of is the wires are not corresponding to the pdf but find that hard to believe, if it was a cheap Chinese motor then yes I could believe it but not with a Sany.

BTW I found the code I used to make my first diff board, similar to pics, not sure if its any use to you as its metric ;D but also made to fit directly into a PMDX 122, suppose you could just fit connectors instead of the heavy copper wire.

Can yall review the schematic and PLEASE explain what the ABCD's are .    Not sure of some of th eempty pins the picture was not that clear.

I am not an electronics wiz..

BTW that is a D (Direction) next to the S (Step) at the top and there should be another  one beside the second S but I forgot it ;D
If you look in the other pic you will see the wire jumper that connects the Gnd to the Gnd pin on the driver and you will also see the red wire connecting the 4 pins on the two drivers and then the tail of that goes to your BOBs 5v supply.

ok which side connects to the AB DRIVE
