Re: assistant implementing INMSTOP

I would comment that the motor is very responsive to commands while it is executing motion. i can monitor input V and I, both temps, the timer and the position in "real time" while the motor is in motion in a 1 second timer without obvious latency.

Use of 38400 baud however is required.

Re: assistant implementing INMSTOP

// then type "PC /" while it's moving, it will display a continuous stream of step count

how do you stop it displaying the stream once you have started it?

Re: assistant implementing INMSTOP

set the motor in motion, very slowly with the MCP or MCT command...."scanning" for example. If the COM link fails I want the motor to detect this and stop.

Re: assistant implementing INMSTOP

so if I set the motor running very slowly for a long distance (would take it several minutes to complete the motion) and during that time the computer failed or the application software crashed there is no way for the motor to detect that and be stopped?

Re: assistant implementing INMSTOP

thanks very much for the response.

I guess I could put it this way. (I am using immediate mode and I am writing software to control the motor through the RS-232 port)

What I need to do is stop the motor when I pull the serial cable out of the computer or turn the computer off.

It is controlling a very expensive and potentially fragile device. i have been reviewing the INMSTOP command, but there is not a lot of info...

DC setup, pin outs cables etc etc

Hi I have an ASX66A motor. It arrived with two cables presumably for RS232 and input power connections. So far anyway, I can't find any information on pin outs or how these cables are supposed to be used. There does not appear to be any written documentation for this information in the box included ...
