I have to admit I am confused. I don't know which one to order.
cheers - I.
Sorry for the delay, not very often online lately.
Yes, you can use the AMS22B sensors. They are 360 degrees sensors and since you need your motors to rotate 180 degrees, you can use a small pulley with 2:1 ratio. See here a good example of how this can be done.
Also I have made a special menu for the clearpath motors. You should use the mode "2" as in the below photo.
Reset the AMC1280USB after you save the setting, as the change of base frequency for the PWM cannot be performed instantly.
Other setting you may need to do are to set the Max motor speed to less than 95% as otherwise the clearpath thinks there is an error and disables the motor.
In the Clearpath tool, make sure you are using Velocity mode, and start with small acceleration and speed settings for the motor, to get familiar with the effect that PID has on your actuators first. From experimenting on my motor with no gearing, I found that the positioning is stable under 200RPM and acceleration of 600 max. With gearing you can set it much higher.
Essentially it's the same thing. The magnetic contact less sensors from BI-TECHNOLOGIES are non contact as well, but you need a hub and axle to drive the magnet position. The sensor above does not include this.
yes they do 180 and 360 I think. I havnt looked into it very much. Just thought it might be a more reliable solution than coupling a shaft. They are not that expensive maybe ill order one to have a play with.
In the mean time ill keep saving for some optical encoders

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
