Our team has decided to use the AS5145B encoder for some of our motors this year. However, we are running into a few problems.
We’ve double-checked and we are sure that the encoder is hooked up to the Jaguar correctly, however, in the Labview example project, the motor just keeps increasing speed and and encoder doesn’t return return any data.
Also in the BDC-COMM application, when we use Position mode and Set the PID to some simple test values (12, 0, 0) the motor just turns and never stops. When we check the Periodic Status Messages, we see that the data returned is just 0.00 for POS B0-3 and Speed B0-3.
Using the encoder, used CAN, never used them together before. BDC-COMM sounds like a good way to check things out and moving to an O-Scope or DMM on one of the channels to see if it’s actually changing are where I would go next if that doesn’t work.
