Receive the current shunt monitor and the protection diode measurement signal.
The actual load and the current rpm comes from it. Analog measurement front-end: the signal from the commutator is quite noisy.
A motor is a highly inductive load. When the commutator switches from one coil to the next one the built magnetic field is not able to change as quick as the current changes. This generate negative voltage spikes on the motor poles. This spikes must be filtered out with a parallel diode. If we measure the current through this diode, we can find the these spikes and calculate the actual rpm from the frequency of it. View all 10 components. Finally, I started to rewrite the controller's program, to the new pin configuration.
During this process, I also want to little bit clean up the code. The board looks like working so far.
As I promised my previous post, I made some tweaks on the front panel schematics. To be precise, connected the push button of the rotary encoder to the MCU. This gives me the flexibility to use the rotary encoder to navigate in some kind of menu system if I write some code for itable to eliminate the additional physical controls mode switch, calibration switchand provide the possibility to add more function.
Here is the modification of the schematic drawing actually I can't insert the full page here - lack of resolution of the computer where I'm writing this actually.It is fully Pre-wired, tested and configured with Computer.

Project in progress by dev I am in the process of making a Power Unit for my MG F car, where I am manually machining out the parts on a hobby milling machine at home and around my day job.
I will be sharing the MG F project on here once it gets fully going too.
To save my aching feet and arms every evening after work, I am now looking at converting it to CNC. The Arduino Mega directly controls the ODrive Brushless DC motor controller and temporarily uses a joypad from an old indoor helicopter to manually control the mill.
I have successfully machined out components using the manual Joypad control using the converted Y-axis; where I made this first to setup and test all the controls and write the sketch. My Website.

Control mills, lasers, and other devices with NEMA steppers over your network. Project tutorial by Garrett Kendrick.
This is a simple and highly configurable CNC machine found at vicious1. It's perfect for a DIY hobbyist. This is a model circuit that can control the speed and the direction of a dc motor without the h-bridge it's an alternative to h-bridge.CNC v3.2.1 - electronics using DC motors and rotary encoders

Autodesk Fusion Pages: . RadioG Jr. The encoder feedback would serve to calibrate the DC motor to the number of steps originally intended for the PAP motor. These is no simple replacement for driving not-a-stepper motors with encoders with stepper software. You have a major undertaking ahead of you. The art of getting good answers lies in asking good questions. I know, but i think it's possible. Thanks of your help. Its not that major to get something working.
You need two ISRs, one for reading the quadrature from the encoder - I'd recommend using pin change interrupts for that as you can have one handler triggered from a change of either A or B inputs.
That ISR maintains the actual position variable A single normal interrupt channel can count the step pulses from GRBL as well as the direction and set the set-point variable.
The in loop you run a PID to take the difference of the two values and derivce a control output direction and magnitude for the motor controller. Due to the speed of pulses it is probably worth using direct port manipulation in the ISRs so each runs in a dozen microseconds or less. Hi, thank you very much for your quick response. I am reassured about the feasibility of my project. Perhaps you know a better software? Have a good day. Is this some external motor with analog bipolar control input?
Quote from: MarkT on Dec 05,pm. Look up "Servostrap" or "Repstrap" for examples of how it can be done. Thank you very much for your keywords; A quantity of ideas. I look at it all. OK for the mini pro. I do not know this model. I will try to adapt Grbl for a stepper motor at first. The biggest challenge for me will be finding the PID lines of the Grbl.
Thank you for your help. To do what you're asking to do there's no need to modify the code of either firmware. Each piece of firmware is written to be extremely efficient since the respective tasks are incredibly time-sensitive. Like MarkT said, you can't hope to combine both Grbl's and Servostrap's job onto a single microcontroller. Quote from: Chagrin on Dec 20,am. I have just come to see this link Servostrap I do not know if I can drive this project by Grbl.

Quick links. After some research I think I have to use a relay, am I right?
Thanks in advance! Thank you so much. You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post. So here is my setup and I am making a binder jet 3dprinter where I only have x and y axis cloned y axis and I wanted to use a dc motor putting binder to turn and off only when required though Gcode using M03 and M I am using 3 NEMA 17 motors.
So a 5V 10 Amp single channel relay would be okay, right? I just needed help on one final thing. What I really want is that while the Gcode is being executed line by line, I want the dc motor pump to turn on only in those lines not otherwise like while moving from one point to another or while moving from origin to the starting point?
How can i do that in Gcode? Who is online Users browsing this forum: No registered users and 0 guests. Donations are welcome and all money goes back into supporting the community.
