Default program loaded on AxonII
« on: November 28, 2010, 09:16:36 PM »
Anyone know what the default program for the axonII is suppose to do? I'm wondering if mine is doing something odd. I turned it on for the first time today to start building a project. I needed to rotate a servo really slowly to trigger a camera on a 25 foot pole. I built the rig out of erector set and my handy dandy servo to erector set mounts.

any back on topic I am downloading all the programs needed to write this stupid easy program and I finished wiring power to the axonII. Now it blinks the 8 segment and pulses my servo. They are continuous rotation (I need to buy standard ones some time) so it just bumps every so often. The servo is connected to H6. It does EXACTLY what I need but my fear it that it is not running a program and just rebooting. Does the default test program just pulse the outputs? That would explain what I am seeing.

The simple solution would be to program something different, and see if it does something different :P

I attached the default program, which basically pulses all the pins on/off at about 1Hz, and sends data out UART.

Well it was late last night and I was lazy. I started to download all the programs to setup a new development environment because the last time I did an MCU project I was still running XP. It stopped working after a while not sure why. I do need to write a program that runs the servo at a value I can control till I find the frequency I need. Later I might add a long cable and a button to remote the trigger. My project ADD started taking over when I started using the servo adapters for the first time. However I need to finish more projects on the Table-top Gaming side of CorSec before I work on any robot related products.
