SBL2360T Torque mode

1 year 1 month ago #29536228 by centaurrobotics
I have never used a motor controller before and I am working on a project that requires me to use Torque mode on the SBL2360T brushless controller. I am using a RS232 for communication. The previous user used Speed loop but I need to use Torque mode. They got the rpm from the controller but I want Torque Amps. I am not sure how to receive or transmit the Torque amps from the controller to Arduino.. Also for torque mode, is it enough if I tune the Torque loop alone or do I need to tune the other two loops(speed and position) as well?
As I am new to this any help is much appreciated.

Hello Centaurrobotics,

I apologize about the lack of response on the forums, the forums went somewhat un-attended as our priorities were shifted. We are now hoping to get the forums back online and working.

If you are still in need of assistance with this, Torque mode only requires the Torque loop to be tuned. Depending on the firmware you are using, the controllers use a cascaded mode that starts with Torque mode. In Firmware V2.1 and later there is even an automatic Torque mode tuning. 

As for help with Arduino, you can find an article we have written on this subject here:

With Kind Regards
