Closed Loop Parameters

Hello,

I'm starting using your SDC2130 controller and trying to configuring the Closed Loop Parameters I have some doubts about the Position Mode Velocity and Turns Min to Max fields on the Roboteq Motor Control Utility, can you explain me what these two parameters do?

thank you

The turns min to max is the amount of turns the motor max from fully retracted to fully extended (linear actuator). This value for the most part is unknown, so don't worry too much about this parameter.

The position mode velocity is the speed of the motor in the position mode. In position tracking, this does nothing as it is designed to go as fast as it can to get to position and hold. You use the speed and acceleration parameters.

Thank you,

So for Closed Loop control of a differential robot motor these two parameters does nothing?

For the position modes, this will have little to no effect. In general, you won't want to use a whole lot of the differential gain as it is the reaction part of the PID. So if you put too much and your motor goes out of control, it can possibly burn up your motor.

In the speed mode, this acts as your boost upon a command change.
