I was working on characterizing a motor. I ran in to a problem because I needed to find the edges per revolution for the motor. I found CPR on the Falcon 500/Talon FX documentation which turns out to be 2048 CPR. Is there a way to switch between CPR and Edges Per Revolution?
The Talon FX reports 2048 units per rotation. There are no edges because its not an external quadrature sensor. If you include more details on what your trying to accomplish, you will probably get better answers.
I’m trying to build a shooter with 2 falcon 500s with talon fx built-in. I am currently characterizing the motors but I ran into the problem when I was finding the edges per revolution of the flywheel. I know that the ratio to turn the flywheel is 1 rotation of the motor: 1 rotation of the flywheel.
I hope you can help me with this additional information.
Thank you so much!
We’ve been struggling with the terminology to use in the characterization tool config/documentation for a while; we settled on “edges” because it is (for now, at least) unambiguous for quadrature encoders (which are most-common).
We’re not overwhelmingly happy with it, though - that it is inaccurate for the Talon sensor is unfortunate (I was not aware that it wasn’t a quadrature encoder until now). Suggestions for how we might resolve the terminology issue would be appreciated; it’s a lingering problem.
