|For testing the DAC
If the axis is aborted or all PID gains are zeroed,
you can use the PIDOutputOffset parameter to
set the DAC voltage directly. (3277 = 1Volt, 6553 =
You can only use the PIDOutputOffset parameter
if the controller is not configured for motor commutation.
If the controller is configured for commutation, use
the Commutation DAC Offset to test the DAC.
|For using the DAC as a general
purpose analog output
In some cases, the easiest way for the host
to generate an analog signal is to set all PID gains
to zero and use the PIDOutputOffset parameter
to set the desired voltage level.
Alternatively, you can use the Commutation DAC Offset
for the same purpose, which has the advantage that the
voltage levels can be individually set for the two DACs.
