[00:00:08] <mikegg> I think it helps if you start with proven hardware
[00:00:50] <skunkworks_> andypugh: I suppose. I will take hard to get running over flaky any day though ;)

[00:03:48] -!- theorbtwo [theorbtwo!~theorb@91.84.53.6] has joined #emc
[00:04:55] <skunkworks_> anyway - I don't care what any of you say - emc is the best! (prices may vary in Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico)
[00:05:38] <andypugh> Hmm, how to convert clocks to nanoseconds?
[00:09:25] <andypugh> skunkworks_: No, I think we will agree that EMC2 is the best priced, anywhee.
[00:10:01] <danimal_garage> lol
[00:10:19] <cradek> we have more trouble with lucid regarding lapic etc. unfortunately that's the consequence of trying to support multiple processors.
[00:10:44] <cradek> the choice for hardy was to always use just one processor, which makes it more likely to run on a wide variety of hardware
[00:10:54] <skunkworks_> does anyone remember an issue with lowering the servo thread with mesa hardware? I had tried earlier to raise it to 2khz - and got realtime delays. so I tried 1250khz and also got realtime delays
[00:11:04] <cradek> I'm still not sure which choice I think is better
[00:11:45] -!- OoBIGeye has quit [Ping timeout: 276 seconds]
[00:12:09] <skunkworks_> I mean 1.25khz...
[00:12:18] <skunkworks_> :)
[00:12:36] <cradek> skunkworks_: with my complicated ladder (and not too modern machine) I couldn't get it to go any faster.
[00:12:43] <andypugh> cradek: Hmm, feel like answering my technical question over on -devel?
[00:12:45] <cradek> your machine is slow - seems like you wouldn't need it anyway?
[00:12:53] <skunkworks_> cradek: ok - that is what I was thinking...
[00:13:01] -!- OoBIGeye [OoBIGeye!~kent@194-237-160-59-no48.tbcn.telia.com] has joined #emc
[00:13:48] <skunkworks_> cradek: Peter had mentioned raising the servo thread to get a better velocity estimate... but yes - it seems to be working fine.
[00:14:11] <cradek> does the code really say 1||<<12 ?
[00:14:40] <skunkworks_> (I have 1 axis running simulated tach output from emc to the amp)
[00:14:44] <andypugh> I think it is 1LL (1 as a U64)
[00:14:49] <cradek> oh, duh
[00:14:53] <cradek> stupid web browser
[00:14:55] <cradek> sorry
[00:15:20] <andypugh> But it still seems a bit, well, how to put this... wrong?
[00:15:56] <cradek> also see motion/control.c:245
[00:16:54] <danimal_garage> carbs officially clean
[00:17:09] <danimal_garage> they werent very dirty though, someone's been in there recently
[00:17:23] <danimal_garage> drilled out the jets a little
[00:17:36] <cradek> also see hal/drivers/hal_parport.c:382

[00:18:59] -!- OoBIGeye [OoBIGeye!~kent@194-237-160-59-no48.tbcn.telia.com] has joined #emc
[00:19:41] <skunkworks_> cradek: it scares me a bit that it is so close to not working... (or is there something else going on) like how many more lines of ladder before 1khz is too fast?
[00:20:19] KimK_afk is now known as KimK
[00:20:20] <skunkworks_> I guess the ladder could be kept in a 500hz thread...
[00:21:30] <KimK> skunkworks: Are you having ladder problems? What's happening? I have some ladder issues too, let's compare notes, maybe?
[00:21:41] <andypugh> skunkworks_: How is Your C? I confess I have never seen the point in Ladder when you can write a state machine in Comp
[00:22:09] <skunkworks_> andypugh: sure.. (that is why I did the gear shift in comp.... - I could think my way though it)
[00:23:12] <skunkworks_> KimK: I was just saying that I tried to raise the servo thread frequency - and I got realtime delays at 1.250khz. Chris said - with his ladder - he could not get any faster either.
[00:23:12] <KimK> Does a comp offer handy highlighting of active inputs, outputs, internal bits, etc.?
[00:23:34] <skunkworks_> KimK: not really - that is nice isn't it ;)
[00:24:00] <andypugh> Have you seen the emco/boxford toolchanger comp on the forum? It is a reasonably good example of a state-machine
[00:24:23] <tom3p> :( my comp doesnt change axis.n.motor-pos-cmd and eventually craps out with a runaway axis (the dro climbs right outta site)
[00:24:29] <skunkworks_> KimK: what ladder problems are you having?
[00:24:40] <andypugh> KimK: No. But yes. But mainly no. You can set up diagnostic pins and watch in Halscope. That's about it.
[00:25:29] <tom3p> pyvcp/glade gets you indicators
[00:25:42] <andypugh> tom3p: That's a bit special. I have been trying to work out how to do that.
[00:25:44] <KimK> skunkworks: Yes, I think it even says (somewhere?) that no matter what you do, ladder will always run at 1khz. Which worries me, maybe they're internally forcing it to stay at one speed to mask other problems?
[00:26:19] <tom3p> andypugh, indicators or axis.n.motor-pos-cmd?
[00:26:41] <andypugh> tom3p: Getting a comp to alter the values shown in the DRO.
[00:26:48] <KimK> skunkworks: Maybe we need to find that lock, loosen it, and play with speeds until we see what breaks?
[00:27:06] <tom3p> andypugh, got that... i post code
[00:27:22] <skunkworks_> KimK: when you say we? ;) I think I would just break things.
[00:27:30] -!- OoBIGeye has quit [Ping timeout: 255 seconds]
[00:28:30] <skunkworks_> maybe that is why you get realtime errors.. if you try to run it in a faster thread - it just keeps plugging away at 1khz
[00:28:57] <skunkworks_> when you watch the ladder scan - it gives you the speed - seems to be in uS
[00:30:01] <KimK> The problem I was having had more to do with using the ladder editor, or saving the edits or something. In any case I felt it was a bug, because I didn't think I was doing anything unusual, and it was repeatable, but only with that exact file I was editing? So I haven't said anything yet. I think it was two or three compares on one page?
[00:30:27] <skunkworks_> like the second screenshot down http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?ClassicLadderExamples
[00:31:34] <skunkworks_> KimK: The interface is a bit lacking.. but once you know it - it doesn't seem so bad. kinda like getting used to eagle pcb cad
[00:31:46] <tom3p> andypugh, http://pastebin.com/1iRLxwAn it works with the dro. i manualy enable it, i manual setp the offset param, the joint really moves and the dro is right
[00:32:51] <skunkworks_> KimK: you have seen some of my ladder. If I was having saving issues I think I would have pulled my hair out :)
[00:32:56] <KimK> skunkworks: When I saved my edit, it would change things in other pages in the ladder. Most also were compares, but I think it changed some other stuff too. So I made a strategic retreat, and re-wrote it using contacts/coils, and made it simpler. But that's bad because now it doesn't do everything it was supposed to. I haven't gotten back to sort that out, but I need to soon.
[00:33:14] <andypugh> tom3p: Ah, so you just move the following error limits out of the way?
[00:34:05] <KimK> skunkworks: I want to get back to that situation and more fully and properly debug it, but I'll need help, I don't know how to do that sort of thing very well.
[00:34:06] -!- OoBIGeye [OoBIGeye!~kent@194-237-160-59-no48.tbcn.telia.com] has joined #emc
[00:34:31] <tom3p> good catch, i haqdnt said that, but... it runs away at maybe 50 units even thought i set FERROR to 5.00inches! so theres more to it ( ok for maybe 30 counts )
[00:34:32] <skunkworks_> KimK: if you do not have enough 'componants' allocated in the initialization string in emc's hal file.. it does funky things
[00:34:57] <skunkworks_> if you use more compares than you have set in the hal file - they overwrite one another.
[00:35:16] <skunkworks_> took me a few to figure out what was going on.
[00:35:28] <skunkworks_> I bet that is what you are seeing
[00:36:22] <KimK> skunkworks: I do have a very long init string, I think I hit everything, unless there were one or two I had to leave out because it didn't like?
[00:36:35] <tom3p> andypugh, i set the ferror limit way up hoping thatd get me more dynamic range, but it didnt
[00:37:27] <KimK> skunkworks: OK, I'll check that when I get back to it, but I'm thinking that's not it. Let me know if you think of any other possibilities, though.
[00:37:45] <andypugh> tom3p: If you write a value to -fb that doesn't match -cmd then EMC2 will not be happy.
[00:38:01] <tom3p> andypugh, all i can see now is that axis.n.motor-pos-cmd doesnt update when the comp is enabled ( and effs up ) and does update when disabled
[00:38:33] -!- robh__ has quit [Ping timeout: 264 seconds]
[00:38:51] <tom3p> andypugh, did you see the comp? it does match -fb and -cmd downstream, i dont have control over the above mentioned tho
[00:38:54] <andypugh> Too late for me at the moment, and I have a cute blonde german on another chat,
[00:39:19] <tom3p> well what are you doing here? ;)
[00:39:25] <danimal_garage> it's likely a dude
[00:39:30] <tom3p> haha
[00:39:50] <andypugh> No, I have investigated.
[00:40:24] <KimK> skunkworks: Thanks! I've got to run an errand. Back later.

[01:57:20] <Connor> okay guys, what kind of endmill / router bit do I need to cut out shapes in .032" Brass ? I'm making Pet Name Tags for my Dogs etc..
[01:57:45] <Connor> I plan on using a V-bit to engrave them.. but, I'm not sure on the cutting them out...
[01:57:56] <cradek> can you stamp them?
[01:58:06] <ds3> isn't it cheaper to have them die cut for blanks?
[01:58:16] <ds3> 0.032 is a bit nasty to hold down
[01:58:27] <cradek> yes, clamping will be what makes this hard, not endmill selection
[01:58:55] <cradek> on brass you could use any old 1/8 or 1/16 end mill and it'd probably be fine
[02:02:31] <ds3> run it FAST
[02:02:48] <ds3> brass is like 300SFPM for HSS, IIRC
[02:03:34] <ds3> so for 1/8, that makes it 4800 RPM.. for carbide, about 9600... for 1/16 and carbide, 19200RPM
[02:05:02] <Tom_itx> Connor, clamp a sacrifice material on top of the brass

[03:01:56] <Connor> I've got a 1/8" end mill for use with non-ferrous metal..
[03:02:12] <Connor> Stamping would be nice, but, I'm not going to be making allot of these..
[03:03:33] <Connor> the 1/8" is 2 flute, and ZrN Coated
[03:05:27] <Connor> Once I get shapes cut, I'll put them into pocket of the same shape in MDF, use the hole for the little split ring to secure it down for the engraving.

[06:56:10] <Jymmm> jbunch: Just park your car 30ft away from the camera and see if you can read the license plate.
[06:56:25] <Valen> see if somebody else can read it
[06:56:36] <Valen> (if theres any doubt)
[06:56:37] <Jymmm> what Valen said
[06:56:57] <Jymmm> also, move the car and see if you can read the plate while it's moving.
[06:57:16] <jbunch> With this camera I can clean HD picture
[06:57:25] <Jymmm> fuck HD
[06:57:36] <Jymmm> It's the lens you need to be concerned with
[06:58:05] <Jymmm> and if the ccd sensor can keep up with moving objects
[06:59:49] <psha[work]> hm, thieves drive cars with clean readable plates?!
[07:00:31] <Jymmm> sure, they just steal them from another car.
[07:00:47] <jbunch> it has a great lense I will check how it works with motion. I have not seen many camera lense combinations that look as clean as this.
[07:00:47] <Valen> probably wont happen again or it'll happen in a few weeks
[07:01:03] <Valen> they target people who recently move in
[07:01:10] <Valen> then when they get insurance
[07:02:51] <psha[work]> jbunch: pan tilt camera with tracking ability, rfid markers to distinguish between friend and foe (IFF) and something like tennis ball shooter to frigthen them
[07:03:17] <Jymmm> Or, just get a phalanx.
[07:03:29] <psha[work]> Jymmm: not cheap one...
[07:03:47] <psha[work]> and usually flak turrents have too high rate of fire for home security
[07:03:48] <Valen> paintball gun with openCV + EMC
[07:04:09] <Jymmm> psha[work]: Um, you better google phalanx.
[07:04:13] <Valen> still at least with a phalanx you don't have to worry about disposing of the body
[07:04:23] <jbunch> when the gate goes in i am adding rfid to our cars to open the gate. i am also adding a feature to the gate that if the alarm trips the gate will no longer open.
[07:04:52] <psha[work]> Jymmm: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phalanx_CIWS
[07:05:11] <Jymmm> jbunch: I wouldn't add anythng that automaticaly open doors/gates.
[07:06:27] <psha[work]> Jymmm: you think that it's cheap? :) or it's rate of fire is ok? :)
[07:06:52] <Jymmm> psha[work]: I asked to work on them.
[07:07:05] <Jymmm> err, s/asked/used/
[07:07:39] <jbunch> I am using rfid for the access to shop and house now. the remotes for this system are 128 bit encripted.the rfid tqgs willread at around 75 ft.
[07:08:02] <jbunch> we no longer keep rf door remotes in the cars.
[07:09:06] <jbunch> look at the paxton stuff pretty cool
[07:09:40] <psha[work]> ah, i've been robbed too!

[07:37:39] <Loetmichel> was about half a year work to get the ships gps and tiltsensors tangled with the Phalanx-mount to couinteract the rolling ship ;-)
[07:38:14] <Loetmichel> so the sattelite dish points directly to the sattelite, regardless of position and weather
[07:39:20] <Loetmichel> and it was in the nineties, so no fast c aviable. Had to do it with a Z80 and some ram and rom

[07:45:21] <psha[work]> yes
[07:45:24] <psha[work]> install emc2-sim
[07:45:35] <psha[work]> it's simulator without any realtime support

[07:46:39] <grandrew> I've compiled it with configure --enable-simulator but it still needs rtapi. Or is emc2-sim some different product?
[07:46:57] <psha[work]> with --enable-simuator it don't need rtapi
[07:47:11] <psha[work]> however maybe you need to tune your .ini /.hal files to remove some things like loadrt partport
[07:49:17] <anonimasu> this comp stuff is easy :D

[07:50:57] <anonimasu> only thing is will stuff be persistant between calls to my function, or do I need to set them as param or pin to be that way?
[07:53:05] <grandrew> are there any examples of config files for simulator?
[07:54:42] <psha[work]> anonimasu: it depends - local variables will be local to call, global - presistent between calls
[07:54:54] <psha[work]> grandrew: yes, directory 'sim' in examples
[07:56:13] <grandrew> psha[work], they still have rtapi function calls, .hal and motmod requirements :-( I've removed them but emc2 still complains about missing rtapi
[07:57:48] <anonimasu> psha[work]: neat!
[07:57:48] <grandrew> hmm maybe I shouldn't configured with --enable-run-in-pace
[08:04:17] <grandrew> hmm rebuilding with just --enable-simulator and it is still trying to compile rtapi source files (which also do not have support for my ARM machine and produce errors but I already fixed that)
[08:05:51] <psha[work]> grandrew: --enable-simulator --enable-run-in-place
[08:06:04] <psha[work]> it's building pseudo rtapi - for hal and other things
[08:06:07] <psha[work]> it's userspace libs
[08:06:20] <psha[work]> if you built RIP (runinplace) then you have to source scrips/emc-environment
[08:06:26] <psha[work]> otherwise it'll try to load system wide emc
[08:07:49] <grandrew> despite of building userspace libs it complains about bitops support which I don't think is much related to userspace

[08:11:27] <grandrew> it compains about ./src/rtapi/rtapi_bitops.h not supporting ARM. I've just created empty test_and_set_bit and test_and_clear_bit functions to make it compile OK

[08:19:23] <psha[work]> axis gui relies on communication with interpeter and other parts
[08:19:33] <grandrew> ok, will need some time to rebuild
[08:19:35] <psha[work]> so there are chances that you need this stuff
[08:20:00] <grandrew> running scripts/emc complains about rtapi kernel module must be loaded
[08:21:21] <psha[work]> after rebuild?
[08:21:28] <psha[work]> with simulator mode?
[08:23:26] <anonimasu> perfect.. I have my comp wait for the angle from the userspace component now ^_^
[08:24:08] <grandrew> psha[work], with configure --enable-simulator. I'm not sure of how to run in simulator mode
[08:25:06] <psha[work]> same as usual - source scripts/emc-environment and run 'emc'
[08:26:16] <psha[work]> grandrew: have you run '. scripts/ems-environment' ?
[08:27:57] <grandrew> linux/bitops.h no such file or directory
[08:29:17] <mrsunshine__> rain day == scraping day? :)
[08:29:59] <grandrew> psha[work], no I haven't, need to rebuild once again with my empty bitops to try that
[08:30:37] <psha[work]> grandrew: linux/bitops is in linux includes, not in linux-headers
[08:30:44] <psha[work]> but you may try asm/bitops instread
[08:30:51] <psha[work]> with probably defifing _LINUX_BITOPS_H
[08:31:19] <psha[work]> asm/bitops is not in -headers package too...
[08:32:01] <grandrew> btw where can I share my hal driver sources, configs, schematics and milling GC's of my TLE5205 and parport based CNC controller?

[08:33:16] <psha[work]> however it looks like you need only first one
[08:33:41] <anonimasu> very nice,
[08:33:49] <anonimasu> it sits and waits for angle from the userspace part now ^_^
[08:34:04] <grandrew> psha[work], I'm afraid this will not work: #error only <linux/bitops.h> can be included directly
[08:34:15] <anonimasu> then sets enable out and gives the angle for commutation..
[08:36:22] <grandrew> psha[work], It's better to rewrite test_and_set_bit in ARM asm if we need a working version of it :-)
[08:37:49] <anonimasu> so I just hook that up to the axis amp enable.. :)

[08:40:06] <anonimasu> no, before
[08:40:12] <psha[work]> yes, trigger estop :D
[08:40:15] <anonimasu> I dont need to home, I need to wait for my abs encoders to provide angle data

[08:40:21] <anonimasu> motion.enable?
[08:40:25] <psha[work]> probably
[08:40:43] <anonimasu> what gets/sets that pin?
[08:40:50] <anonimasu> is it always set when motion is allowed to move the machine
[08:40:54] <psha[work]> grandrew: or just copy functions from arch/arm/include/asm/bitops.h
[08:41:00] <psha[work]> if you don't want to bother with includes
[08:41:11] <psha[work]> anonimasu: man motion :)
[08:42:07] <psha[work]> anonimasu: there is list of all pins
[08:42:12] <psha[work]> maybe motion.motion-enable
[08:42:17] <psha[work]> enabled
[08:42:41] <anonimasu> true when motion is enabled is all it says
[08:42:50] <anonimasu> but what can cause that to be not true?
[08:43:00] <psha[work]> try it :)
[08:43:07] <psha[work]> what? you can cause it
[08:43:20] <anonimasu> yeah but is there something else that can dissallow motion?
[08:43:37] <psha[work]> i don't see anything better in man page
[08:43:56] <psha[work]> you may trigger 'power off' also
[08:44:02] <psha[work]> in that mode no motion is done
[08:44:05] <anonimasu> I mean, I cant move motors before I have commutation data
[08:44:19] <psha[work]> then connect it to power on pin
[08:44:21] <anonimasu> but that's different, that will kill my drives
[08:44:28] <psha[work]> no
[08:44:37] <psha[work]> it's not really Power
[08:44:40] <psha[work]> it's just machine state
[08:44:56] <psha[work]> set motion.enable to false until you get all needed data
[08:45:01] <psha[work]> using and2 component
[08:45:04] <anonimasu> mhm,great.
[08:45:11] <anonimasu> works perfect ^_^
[08:46:01] <anonimasu> now I just need to figure out how to make my component distinguish different axes from eachother...
[08:46:13] <psha[work]> look into demo_mazak.hal
[08:46:29] <psha[work]> there is exmaple of motion.enable hooked to classicladder
[08:48:45] <anonimasu> any idea how to make a component that the question is now how to provide data to a comp..
[08:49:45] <psha[work]> anonimasu: explain better :)
[08:49:58] <anonimasu> I have a userspace component that needs to pull serial data from a encoder
[08:50:06] <anonimasu> actually multiple of them
[08:50:24] <anonimasu> then send the axis number and the encoder angle to hal

[08:51:50] <psha[work]> create several pins

[08:52:11] <psha[work]> userspace.axis.1
[08:52:11] <anonimasu> I guess, I could just hack my comp for each case..
[08:52:11] <psha[work]> etc
[08:52:24] <psha[work]> and load several instances of your comp
[08:52:36] <anonimasu> but I'd like to make it more generic
[08:52:44] <anonimasu> so I can spec the encoder id somehow
[08:55:59] <psha[work]> what's your rt component doing?
[08:56:17] <psha[work]> may you paste source?
[08:57:53] <anonimasu> one second
[08:58:20] <anonimasu> http://pastebin.com/LM8nhXLi
[09:00:10] <anonimasu> it works fine now :) no problems, userspace handles encoder stuff..
[09:00:41] <anonimasu> ie, when it receives position from both encoders it'll flip the request_angle to zero to show it's done

[14:23:13] <skunkworks_> cradek: ^
[14:23:17] <cradek> you might try it after motion
[14:23:25] <skunkworks_> I will
[14:23:41] <cradek> iirc, it used to only run at 100Hz, no matter how often you called its thread - not sure if that's still true
[14:24:02] <cradek> but it caused wildly varying thread execution times as you might guess
[14:24:18] <cradek> (but I think it runs every time now)
[14:24:33] <cradek> still different runs might take different amounts of time, depending on how much of the ladder gets triggered

[14:27:58] <anonimasu> with ac servos what happens if the encoder dies?
[14:29:56] <cpresser> anonimasu: most likely the PID has no feedback anymore, it will tune ist output to maximum; the machine will crash if there are no hard-limit switches
[14:30:51] <anonimasu> hm, seems like a comp module to monitor velocity, and commanded velocity
[14:30:56] <anonimasu> err encoder feedback
[14:31:09] <anonimasu> and if there's nothing in 100ms error
[14:31:17] <JT-Shop> wouldn't you get a following error asap when the encoder dies
[14:31:38] <cradek> JT-Shop: if currently moving, yes
[14:31:43] <cradek> JT-Shop: if not, probably no
[14:32:45] <KimK> skunkworks, and all: I've got to get back to work, but post any ladder thoughts, I'll scroll back.

[14:37:39] <pcw_home> anonimasu: if the encoder is used for commutation and you lose it when in motion, you will suddenly have a 60 or so degree step motor
[14:38:31] -!- El_Matarife has quit [Quit: Nettalk6 - www.ntalk.de]
[14:39:08] <pcw_home> err 90 degree or so
[14:41:42] <pcw_home> so if you dont have some kind of fault detection it will come to a stop as smoothly as a pig on stilts
[14:49:32] -!- nullie has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
[14:50:54] <anonimasu> so, it might be a good idea to minitor output versus encoder velocity(something like that)
[14:51:01] <JT-Shop> greased or regular pig?
[14:51:03] <anonimasu> my machine will crash in 2 seconds at full speed...
[14:51:07] <anonimasu> or less
[14:51:39] <anonimasu> so, better be careful
[14:53:12] <pcw_home> Good thing about AC servos is they are less likely to runaway on component failure
[14:53:14] <pcw_home> (since they need power and commutation to turn, not just power like a brush motor)

[14:59:44] <pcw_home> You will get a FE if in encoder is lost in motion so that should be enough

[15:11:40] <anonimasu> I see
[15:12:10] <anonimasu> pcw_home: while I have you here, what's the options for shielding motor wiring?
[15:12:21] <anonimasu> just use the shielded wire and ground it to control cabinet frame?
[15:12:37] <anonimasu> or should the grounding it go against the motor frame? also
[15:13:07] <anonimasu> the connector data says to leave the shield into the connectors
[15:13:58] <pcw_home> The main issue we've found are the large return currents from the PWM drive through the motor winding capacitance to ground
[15:15:35] <anonimasu> and how do you properly shield that?
[15:16:42] <pcw_home> creating a nasty ground loop. Best solution we've found is continuous shield from motor to drive
[15:16:44] <pcw_home> and ferrite common mode choke over U,V,W motor wires
[15:17:06] <anonimasu> what about the encoder cables?
[15:18:11] <pcw_home> If they are differential they should be OK, better if encoder shell is not grounded to motor frame however
[15:18:26] <anonimasu> they are pre-built motors by allen bradley
[15:18:31] <anonimasu> no choice about encoders on them
[15:18:40] <anonimasu> sin/cos output
[15:19:07] <anonimasu> using twisted pair shielded cable
[15:20:02] <anonimasu> what I wonder is, do I just connect the shield at the cabinet end and that's all
[15:20:04] <pcw_home> So differential one pair per sin,cos?
[15:20:08] <anonimasu> yeah
[15:20:33] <anonimasu> sin+/sin- cos+/cos- and +/-
[15:20:33] <pcw_home> Yes thats what I would do on the encoder leads
[15:20:59] <anonimasu> and the data connection goes in a separate cable
[15:21:22] <anonimasu> since that's not as critical, only at startup and it it fails, it wont let me move the machine
[15:21:42] <anonimasu> also differential
[15:21:46] <pcw_home> differential amp receiver for sin/cos should reject most noise
[15:22:48] <anonimasu> actually all diff signals in one shielded cable and vcc/gnd separate
[15:23:02] <anonimasu> since they need different power
[15:24:19] <pcw_home> is motor drive in separate control box? ground between motor drive and machine should be as short and low inductance as possible
[15:24:21] <pcw_home> (since this is where the switching spike currents flow)
[15:24:53] <anonimasu> no

[19:59:23] <psha> anonimasu: for a short time
[20:00:09] <anonimasu> the serial stuff in python does not give the corrct stuff when trying to send bytes with it
[20:00:18] <anonimasu> got a example or a idea how to make that work
[20:00:32] <anonimasu> im sending the same raw data as i am from my windows code

[20:05:04] <psha> anonimasu: probably invalid settings (speed, bits, flow control)
[20:05:27] <anonimasu> nope
[20:05:34] <anonimasu> I get response but I get a error due to checksum

[20:11:20] <anonimasu> and it's the same message as I've sent from my terminal app
[20:15:58] <psha> hm, why so long serial initialization?
[20:16:20] <anonimasu> i dont know, just read a example
[20:16:26] <psha> s = serial.Serial(tty)
[20:16:26] <psha> s.setTimeout(timeout)
[20:16:29] <anonimasu> but I need th stopbits and all

[20:16:44] <psha> you may add them as params to Serial
[20:17:31] <psha> and also i don't understand purpose of __init__ function...
[20:17:44] <psha> run it with 'ipython' and check 's' variable

[21:32:10] <tom3p> can you use the same tools to do other serial comm? ( maybe isolate the difficulty to the encoder comm, but ensure all else works )
[21:33:16] <archivist_emc> serial is a bugger to get working if you ignore certain basics
[21:33:28] <anonimasu> im setting up it up as in windows
[21:33:30] <anonimasu> same config's
[21:33:33] <anonimasu> from python
[21:33:36] <anonimasu> and it sends the wrong data
[21:34:03] <tom3p> yes, can you do any linux serial com using these tools?
[21:34:37] <archivist_emc> or you have forgotten to use the handshakes and are not synchronised
[21:34:43] <andypugh> How wrong? Totally mad wrong?
[21:34:46] <anonimasu> I dont know of any serial program for linux that lets me do hexadecimal communication
[21:35:20] <tom3p> it had an ugly icon.. and name...
[21:35:26] <archivist_emc> the data has no relation to the method, hex, ascii it does not matter
[21:35:30] <robin_> what do you mean by "hexadecimal communication"
[21:35:41] <andypugh> I once spent days struggling with something before I realised that the chip sent MSB first, and the port expected LSB first. It makes the data look totally random.
[21:36:21] <anonimasu> raw binary data
[21:36:25] <robin_> oh right
[21:36:29] <andypugh> The hm2_7i43 driver has a chunk of code for bit reversal, if you want one.
[21:36:30] <archivist_emc> a scope or serail analyser helps
[21:36:42] <anonimasu> I have one already
[21:37:05] <robin_> just use a bit of Perl dood :)
[21:37:25] <robin_> or C or ...
[21:37:33] <anonimasu> I have c# that im porting to python but I cant get the basic serial stuff working
[21:37:42] <anonimasu> the rest is straightforard just moving code
[21:37:49] <robin_> eeew python
[21:37:57] <robin_> one lang I have avoided
[21:38:03] <anonimasu> well, it has hal bindings..
[21:38:05] <anonimasu> that's the reason to use it
[21:38:06] <robin_> that and ruby
[21:38:10] <archivist_emc> python is at the bottom of the tree below perl
[21:38:15] <anonimasu> so I dont have to cludge in c to get some bytes out the port
[21:38:21] <anonimasu> and I can directly set hal pins
[21:38:22] <anonimasu> and parms
[21:38:26] <robin_> fair enough
[21:39:19] <anonimasu> and i dont have a null modem cable around
[21:39:26] <anonimasu> but I have 2 serial ports tho
[21:39:48] <robin_> i have two cats
[21:39:52] <robin_> is that similar?

[22:09:24] <danimal_garage> is newcastle decent beer over there?

[22:09:45] <andypugh> Newcastle Brown?
[22:09:52] <andypugh> It's a lot better than Bud
[22:09:56] <danimal_garage> yea
[22:10:02] <danimal_garage> well thats not saying much lol
[22:10:15] <andypugh> But it is a bit of a unique thing.
[22:10:17] <danimal_garage> i just got some newcastle werewolf, not too bad
[22:10:26] <andypugh> Almost not really considered a beer.
[22:10:59] <andypugh> Clearly it _is_ a beer, but it doesn't seem to live in the same niche as the bitters.
[22:11:32] <danimal_garage> have you had the werewolf blood red ale?
[22:13:12] <andypugh> No, never even heard of it.
[22:14:09] <danimal_garage> ah i just found it in the grocery store
[22:14:26] <andypugh> Does it have the blue star logo?
[22:14:51] <danimal_garage> it has a gold star with a werewolf in the center
[22:15:02] <danimal_garage> it's made by newcastle
[22:15:10] <andypugh> Yeah, just found a mention of it.
[22:15:34] <danimal_garage> it's better than the brown ale IMO
