I hope you’re all doing well. I’m reaching out because I’m currently facing some precision issues with my setup, and I could really use your expertise and advice.
- Microcontroller: Arduino Uno
- Magnetic Encoder: AS5600
- Motor Driver: L298N
- Application: Labeling Machine
I’m using the SimpleFOC library to control a motor for a labeling machine application, and I’m having trouble achieving the level of precision I need. The labels need to be applied with great accuracy, so precision is crucial in this project.
Issues I’m Facing:
- Lack of Precision: The motor isn’t stopping precisely at the desired positions, resulting in label misalignment. I suspect this might be due to tuning issues or perhaps limitations with the L298N driver.
- Arduino Uno: I’m using an Arduino Uno, but I’ve heard that Teensy boards may be better suited for real-time control applications. Could switching to a Teensy board potentially improve the precision and control of my labeling machine?
Questions for the Community:
- Have any of you worked with a similar setup involving an AS5600 encoder, L298N driver, and the SimpleFOC library for precise positioning? If so, what tips or tricks can you share?
- Do you think switching to a Teensy board is a good idea for improved real-time control and precision, or are there other suggestions for optimizing my existing setup?
- Are there specific parameters or settings in the SimpleFOC library that I should focus on for fine-tuning the control loop and achieving higher precision?
Thank you so much in advance for your help!
