I\'ve ordered a AX500 from Roboteq official distributor in UK.
I would like to build a 2DOF simulator using whiper motors with potentiometers and AX500.
My Idea is to use the AX500 into closed loop with analog feedback (potentiometer per motor).
I\'m looking for a solution that is able to parser/adapt to X-Sim2 (motion software) RS232 output (8bit values for motor1 and motor2 every 25ms - timing selectable), and to drive wipermotors to reach the given 8bit position, according to the motor potentiometer value connected to the AX500.
Looking at the manual, related to serial commands I can find:
\"!A~a01~\" Turns + the A motor to \"~a01~\" position
\"!a~a01~\" Turns - the A motor to \"~a01~\" position
...where \"~a01~\" is the value in HEX (8bit / 0-255).
Is there any possibility to avoid to specified the direction? samething like:
Motor A go to \"~a01~\" using Shortest path/direction
I think I can do it with analog inputs and 8bit DAC (0V 2,5V center, 5V), but I would like not to use external DAC for that.
