Test controller with oscilloscope

8 months 4 weeks ago #29535525 by abrown

I have my Roboteq SBL2360T powered with 26V. Before I even connect it to my motor I'd like to check with an oscilloscope to see that I get PWM output.

What I did:
I have my controller set to open loop mode. I loaded a script with setcommand(_G, 1, 300) to the controller (I have tried it in a loop and without a loop).

What I expect to see:
Probing the U V and W outputs I expect to see PWM signal.

What I'm actually seeing:
Constant 6.8V signal on each of the outputs. I have tried changing the source voltage and it always shows 6.8V.

Not sure what to try next.

HI, are you running it in sensor or sensorless? If  sensored and you have not done your Hall sensor map correctly I would guess you would probably not get an invalid motor signal on any phase. The manual says test the 6 possible combinations using the ^HSM [c] [n] command where c is channel and n is number. The maps are values 0-5. It also says test at less than 10% and your command is 300 so close to 30% many of the invalid hall sensor maps result in completely screwed PWM output and or tripping of stall etc. 

Try the hall sensor mapping first. Good luck
