This application note discusses what has to be done
to setup a your system whose motion is controlled by a ss4544 for
some turnkey application, such as our ssCNC program.
The program ssDEMO is a collection of programs and documentation
to enable you to configure and optimize your system. The ssDEMO program
when started resets any current application running in the ss4544 and downloads
a copy of Ustep3 which implements is a general purpose serial interface
to control all aspects of the ss4544. In addition in order to control
a specific machine configuration, a set of parameters describing all aspects
of the machine must be downloaded to the ss4544. We call this the
Motion ParaMeter set which ends up in a file with an .MPM extension .
This file is loaded whenever you go into an application in ssDEMO such
as Diagnostics, or one of the Examples. A sample file MPMDEMO.MPM
is supplied with the ssDEMO software, which you can then edit and modify
to match your machine. In Diagnostics there are many programs for
testing, evaluating, and tuning your machine. This may be done interactively
while you adjust your parameters.
This discussion is a work in progress. Any
questions you might have which are not answered clearly here or in any
of the documentation within ssDEMO will be answered and added to this discussion.
Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org
with your questions.
