How do you stop a motor mid action?

Postby alands » Mon Oct 03, 2016 10:36 pm

I'm using direct data operation commands, via RS-485 modbus, to control an AZD controller, referencing manual HM-60262E.pdf, starting on page 342. Once initiated, what is the command to stop the motor mid-action?

It occurred to me I could overwrite another move command. Using a relative move of distance 0 and speed 0 does the trick.

But is there a better way to do it?

Hi alands,

Other than using a relative move of distance 0 and speed 0, you could turn on a stop input. This can either be done via the driver input command register 007Dh (125 decimal) or by using a direct input on the driver. The Factory default setting of the direct stop input on the driver will be IN6 (Pin4) on the CN5 connector. You can reference page 144 for the direct inputs. Otherwise, you can reference page 256 for the stop input in the 007Dh (125 decimal) register which has bit 5 as the factory default for stop.
