AX3500: generate event on status change

9 years 7 months ago #29525375 by rfrancis
My AX3500 application uses closed loop position control via RS232 interface. As the encoder is not absolute I activate the motor until I find a \"home\" position, defined by a magnet and Hall-effect switch connected to the F digital input.

When finding the home position (and also calibrating the number of encoder counts for a full rotation between 2 successive home positions) I have to continuously send the ?i command to poll for the status of the digital input.

It would be much more convenient if the controller could be set to output an RS232 message (an event) when the digital input changes state.

Is this possible?

thanks,
Richard

This is not possible. You will need to poll the inputs.
