Hello, I am using Labview to communicate to a smart motor and I'd like to set the Torque slope and Torque command as a percentage of full scale for the particular motor in use.
I'm having difficulties understanding the scaling indicated in the manual.
For example the TS command can go up to +2147483647, but in an example program I saw that 6000 = 60%.
What would be the best way to go about this?

Percentage Scaling for Torque and Torque Slope?
1 year 5 months ago #2308
The Torque value, set by the variable "T" is given from 0 to 32k where 0 = 0% and 32k = 100%. So for example, if you wanted 50% torque, you would issue the command "T=16k". This value is instantaneous and can result in jerky, unwanted motion.
For smoother motion, use the Torque Slope "TS" command to gradually ramp up to your set T value. The rate at which the value is increased is defined by the TS value. See the developers guide for an explanation of the units.
The graph on the left shows the result when TS is used. The graph on the right shows the result when TS is not used (disabled).
