I'm waiting on a PT-Actuators kit - are the 'traffic light' e-stop kits available from you ?
I was 1/3 down the SFX rabbit hole but reconsidered and PT-A seemed a decent fit for me.
I am in the process of setting up my SFX100 with the Thanos controller. I keep getting AL06 errors on 2 of the 4 motors. The 2 problem motors both don't work on the Jog test. When I plug them in the motors stop and hum then get an AL06 error. When power is off they turn freely. after the AL06 its like they have a brake applied. All the Pn parameters look good compared to the working servo controllers, when I swap the motors to the good controllers they work. The manual is very vague on the AL06(overload 2). Any idea if this is a Pn setting error or a power wiring error?
Thanks for any help.
I have one of these and they're good. Needs a little soldering for the connector to circuit board to be done when you first get it but works like a charm.The Bajer E-stop box with led light buttons is now available on Tindie:
Would these work for joining wires together?Most of the AASD-15A servos in the market have no shielded wiring on the power cable. Here a few videos to replace with shielded cable while keeping the aviation type connectors:
And here a video how to check if all the wiring has shield and if the shielded replacement cable you got really is shielded:
The shielded cable I used on the videos is this one:
<p dir="ltr">50 feet of 18/4 awg shielded and stranded 4-wire cable for CNC, ROUTERS, 3D PRINTER, STEPPER MOTORS... </p> <p dir="ltr">If you order 2 or more it will come in one solid wire strand. </p> <p dir="ltr">Fast shipping</p>www.ebay.com
Probably you can find it in black color too.
YES!!! I got a nice multi-pack of different sizes of these from Amazon recently!Would these work for joining wires together?
Sure, you could use the 7th actuator channel for front movement, given you overcome some mechanical challenges this involves.Hi Thanos,
I am considering the PT Actuator 5 DOF system which uses the AMC AASD controller
I have read and seen how to add the 7th channel and I was considering adding this channel to enhance Traction Loss
Most TL systems that I have seen to date generally move the rear of the chassis about a pivot point at the front of the chassis
This seems to be great for oversteer but leaves understeer not represented as well as it could be I think (I could be wrong here)
My thought was to mount a 7th actuator at the front in place of the pivot so that in an understeer situation you actually feel the front move away from the direction of turn.
Is this something the controller is capable of doing in conjunction with SIM Tools software?
Anything I may have missed in my considerations?
Does this blink when spikes in motion are detected or am I getting emi? I have just installed this and all works ok but yesterday I noticed sometimes when there is rougher movement, the yellow light will flash every now and then. Are there more functions that are not listed in the manual?The Bajer E-stop box with led light buttons is now available on Tindie:
This means it's jumping from online to offline and back to online quickly after it filters out these spikes... all is good. As designed!!Does this blink when spikes in motion are detected or am I getting emi?
