First of all.. Sorry for my bad english..
My software is behaving quite strange...
I have a test set-up with a driveline with a gear placed as illustrated in "System set-up".
I have two 32 bit absolute encoder rings (the encoder rings has different diameter) and 4 identical renishaw readheads.
The readheads are connected to two SEA 9521 module on a cRIO-9047.
In order to decode the raw data input from the readheads I'm using the software examples made by the SEA company.
I have attached the code in a ZIP file (I'm using the file "SEA-9521_GetPosition_Standard (FPGA)/SEA-9521_GetPosition_Standard (FPGA)_FPGA")
I did put in the right module configuration as shown in "Front panel" below.
The problem / strange behavior is the following:
- The software are working perfectly when configured for R3 and R4. R3 goes from 0 -> 360 deg, R4 goes from 0 -> 360 deg
- If I switch to R1 and R2 only one of the readsheads are working properly (though all readsheads are wirred the same way). (R1 goes from 0 -> 360 deg, R2 goes from 0 -> 192 deg ish)
- If I on the block diagram switch position of the readheads in the I/O Node R2 goes from 0 -> 360 deg and R1 goes from 0 -> 192 deg.
- When the software are working for R3 and R4.. Why isn't it working for R1 and R2???
I really need help for this one...
Thanks in advance!
Solved! Go to Solution.
You're english was perfect 🙂
I'd try reaching out to SEA gmbh Technical support as they're going to have the best knowledge of the project examples.
Their website has a support link here https://www.sea-gmbh.com/en/support/remote-support/ or an email email@example.com
Best of luck!
We managed to figure out what the problem was..
The readhead which didn't work was actually only suited for an encoder ring with a larger diameter (100mm)...
And the encoder ring we had was 52 mm 🙂
