Howard,
That worked!  Status and drives OK.  Exercising the rest of the board.  

Thanks!

not able to verify the device

Hi 
I am having a bit of problem while verifying the code..
The Arduino ide is not able verify the code
The error is :

OnStep:65:10: fatal error: src/sd_drivers/Models.h: No such file or directory
   65 | #include "src/sd_drivers/Models.h"
      |          ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
compilation terminated.
exit status 1
src/sd_drivers/Models.h: No such file or directory
But the all the path is written in the program are doing well..
But still ham getting this error..
How to tackle this issue

No other ideas really.

Sorry I forgot to mention, if it makes any difference, that I live in New South Wales.. I allow the OnStep app to use my location to get date & time etc which works fine.

Make sure the date/time are set.

Goto Failed in Standby

Hi, Background: My scope is a GSO 12" Dob that I have added 2 nema23 stepper motors to the mount which run along timing belting, one for alt and one for az. I am trialling a goto system from Byers using the OnStep firmware and I connect to the system via wifi.

Tried using the "goto" command in the OnStep app and got the "Goto failed in standby" message. I followed the solution given by a Group member previously i.e. "press the [at home (reset)] button. I had the stepper motors off the belting and they worked when I selected the "goto" command. Put the motors back onto the belting and tried the "goto" again but got the "goto failed in standby" message again. So I went through the process again of "resetting" etc and even turned the whole system off and on again. Did the "reset" again but each time I tried after this I keep getting the "goto failed in standby" message and obviously the mount doesn't move. Any suggestions.?

Darryl.

I found the issue, probably introduced when I added TMC2209 UART support.  Patched and works here now.

I assume you intend to keep the existing drives?

Looks too tight to permit much modification. What the gear reduction between the RA drive and the worm?

I don't think there are many sources of inexpensive NEMA 17 step motors. The red, green, blue & black color scheme seems to be universal among them.

The motor manufacturers are fairly consistent There is an A coil and a B coil. The coils are polarized so one end is "+" and the other is "-." Thus you will see this symbol which gives you most of the information you need.

Add a little color and it tells you all you need to know.

The problem arises with the driver carrier manufacturers. They can't seem to decide on a standard coding or which way is up!

Regardless of the inscriptions the hookups are all the same except the ST820. Some use the letter for the coil designation others the numeral. 

Most of the time, one of these will work.

Dave, right, might be a software problem. I'll check if there's a chance to update the OS. Maybe that helps.

Re: HEQ-5 conversion with OnStepX, FYSETC E4 and Nina

I examined it and It has significant drawbacks.

From what I recall the stepper drivers sockets have no mode switching at all not even SPI.

It uses 3x 74HC595 SSR's (to make 24 output pins from 3 MCU pins) which X does in theory support.  I think it would work and if you use TMC2209's and jumper lead the serial interfaces could be ok.

Seems like a lot of hassle though.

Take a look at the under $20 Makerbase MKS TinyBee: w/ESP32 MCU & Wifi WEB Control. Support for 5 external drivers. The layout looks less constrained.

Maybe I should change the values of the resistors (12k,8.1k,3.3k,100k) to have a proper digital level.

Why does it use Schottky diodes, shouldn't they be zener diodes, to protect against voltage peak?

I assume you have the jumper that enables MISO comms positioned properly and that nothing else is enabled that would try to use that same pin (AUX2 aka GPIO4.)

Otherwise you could really disable driver status and see if it works.

I made some changes recently so will test with 5160's tonight to see that its still working.

You don't, one GPIO device is supported.

Depends... but common settings are #ifndef bracketed so that Config.h takes precedence, for others it could go the other way

Re: Initial OnstepX download error

Hi Howard,
That was an improvement,  I now get no errors when upload/compiling. All my Aux highside/lowside drivers show up in the "aux" tab.   Making progress! 

But, I still have the axis1&2 communications error, as show in the previous post..  Drivers are not working.   I am using the QHV5160, but I don't believe there is any difference from the TMC5160 communications wise, I believe it's a VM voltage rating thing.  It works fine with the 4.24C SW load.  I am looking in the config file but I can't find anything that might be causing the failure.

Also, The hand controller pops up in the 10x mode, but that is probably my fault, I customized the guide "speeds" in the SHC SW.

A couple of questions:
  • When I add a second MCP23017, does the addressing continue to GPIO (16...31)? How do I guarantee the correct order between the two devices?
  • When there is a conflict in "#define" between the config.h and the pinmap file, which takes precedence?

Regards,
Bob
