I have a question about the function you describe in the video:
do you have a limit of turns? I think to install the sensor on the motor shaft directly.
Is it possible to fix the sensor on the back of our engines?
I have an idea to simplify the concept:
maybe, is it possible to do it?
with the sensor on the axis at the rear of the engine:
you put the crank down, low position, you press on save the value, the position.
you put the crank in high up position, you press on save the value.
the software counts the turns and saves the high and low positions, it finds / determines the position of the center.
I dont have a limit of turns for this, but it can't be more than 16 turns as otherwise it will be over the 16bit value of the position command input.
Also the sensor may not turn too fast as it may miss turns. Mounting it on the back of the motor (direct connection) will make it rotate probably faster than it can measure. Isn't these motors rotate up to 1200RPM? That would be 20 rotations per second!!
Also the home position (zero value) is detected by the system when the actuator hits a hard stop and has no more speed. Or in a servomotor actuator the limits are engaged and prevent the motor to move more in that direction.
Its not intended for use in AC motors with 180degrees motion of actuator, unless you want to make a belt type actuator and need to measure multiple turns of the sensor with max accuracy.
I need help to connect my AMC, I connected as before and nothing works ... can you tell me clearly how to connect my AMC with potentiometers and in 12 bits on my variable frequency drives? I connected as before, and nothing works ... I set the AMC as before. 8 bits or 12 bits, in the menu it does not work
can you tell me whether or not to put jumper on 5v 8bits / 12bits?
Whenever I press the motion buttons, the engine runs nonstop. the frequency rises to the maximum without variation.
dureiken: Hi there, it's really quiet here someone could help me for my 6 dof project ? thanks a lot

tronicgr: dureiken Hi, Open a thread and I'll try my best to help. A little busy with Kickstarter details at the moment but I'll see what I can do.

fimmy: How's the firmware going?

tronicgr: @fimmy I had to put it on hold to finalize the manufacturing of the new kickstarter controllers. I tested parts of it to ensure compliance with the new features and looks good so far. I'll get back to it soon for integration.

Theuns: Very nice design.I'm also busy with mine and changing it also to Linear Actuators with 220v Servo motors.I'm waiting for my new controllers from Thanos. If I may ask Do you have any Sketchup files of your design and willing to share it I Thanks Theuns

atayeu: Hey everyone! I'm reading up and gathering all of the intel I can find for my first motion platform. this is by far best information for creating one.

tmcnam: I must be crazy but I still can't find the blueprints to the platform by GA-Dawg. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys.

Trip Rodriguez: Sorry tmcnam, the shoutbox doesn't get much attention. Did you find the blueprints? They are at the VERY bottom of the extremely long first post. It says "attachments: 6DOF.zip
