Speed Limit & Ramping

2 months 2 weeks ago #29535291 by hudorvis
I'm looking at purchasing a SDC2160 unit, and controlling it from a 2-axis joystick with analog control. This will be to control 2x brushed DC motors at 12v, but what I need to be able to do is have control pots on the control panel unit, that will allow me to set a maximum speed and an acceleration/de-acceleration ramping for each of these motor channels.

Is this possible from the SDC2160 unit, or what would a suitable alternative be for this type of control?

You can certainly do this using a script.  In outline: Read the analog inputs, read the pots on another pair of inputs.  Use the speed pot input to modify the joystick values and then send them to the controller as motor commands.  Read the acceleration pot input, use that to calculate acceleration and deceleration values and send those values to the controller.
