TMCM-1110 servo control

Postby Qvoloid » Thu Nov 29, 2018 1:24 pm

Hello guys,

Wondering if anyone has any experience controlling a TMCM-1110 Trinamic board from TD? It comes with a nice IDE and all sort of goodies, but I'm looking on how to pass direct messages via serial to it. As far as I get from the manual, it understands serial commands with a convenient format, bu haven't been succesfull talking to it from none of the serial OPS in Touch... any clues?

Best,
Darien

How far do you get?
I'd suggest a Serial DAT, over the Serial CHOP as you get much more control with the former.

Also is it expecting a binary message, or a human readable ascii string?

If the former, use sendBytes() method, rather than send(), to make sure you're not sending unwanted carriage returns, etc.
