RE: Controlling two NEMA 17 Stepper Motors with TB6600

Question first: What is your concern with driving the two steppers? Is it in keeping the two synchronized? Is the issue with having enough power to dr...

RE: Thoughts on motor encoders

@thrandell I have some code that may work, if you want to double up your encoder frequency. Again watch out for lost ticks if it runs too fast for you...

@robotbuilder If detected by software then the problem of missing a tick I may make it less than ideal to increase the pulse frequency? Yes t...

RE: Thoughts on motor encoders

@thrandell That's it, exactly. Ticks are a distance, with no inherent direction. My SOP is: - set a distance to be traveled (n ticks) - set...

@thrandell I took the cheap and dirty road. I assume that the only way for the robot to move is under power. I know which way the wheels are turning, ...

@huckohio straight lines is the reason I went to PID. I was originally planning to "orient" ARDVARC by running a straight line (a la line following) a...

RE: Thoughts on motor encoders

@huckohio not too much to add. Doubling the encoder frequency is still working well for me, on ARDVARC. The only thing you need to keep an eye on is o...

RE: PlatformIO fejl

@henrik_t7, the Arduino IDE is a great tool for most new programmers. It allows you to plow right into writing code for your projects. As you advance ...

RE: PlatformIO fejl

I suppose it depends on the extensions you enable in VSC. I have been running PIO and Arduino IDE simultaneously for the past (at least) two years. I'...

RE: PlatformIO fejl

Luckily PlatformIO does not steal the Arduino IDE extension (as I remember). No need to disable PIO.There is an issue with installing Arduino, if you ...

RE: debugging when not connected to a host computer?

@jfabernathy Yep. We had it easy. When things got out of hand we plugged an HP logic analyzer between the CPU and the board. Then, after programming t...
