Help with basic position mode commands 3 years 9 months ago #1668

Hello,

I have a very basic question on motor commands. Hoping this will be very simple for experts, or, if someone can direct me to some examples.

I have four SM23165DTs in standard daisy chain configuration. Communication with all motors is good, and addressing is set as 1 through 4. I would like to have all four motors:

Start at position 0 (velocity 0)
Accelerate one half shaft rotation
Decelerate one half shaft rotation (returning to position 0, velocity 0)
(repeat forever)

Thank you,
Eric Alexander

Hi Eric,

This would best be done using Position Mode and Relative Position Moves. There is a section in the Support Download section called Developers Tools and Sample Programs. You will find a SmartMotor Developer Worksheet there that will help you calculate your Velocity and Accel/Decel values.
