- When powered up, the motion sensor calibrates.
- When the motion sensor detects motion, it triggers the stepper motor to turn clockwise 200 steps.- Once the stepper motor has turned 200 steps CW it should turn 200 steps counter clockwise (thus returning to its starting position)
How do you know at which position your motors are? Don't they need to be calibrated to a certain point?
And it would be good to be able to have the speed set to say 200
Thanks for the reply wvmarle,yes, they would. I have seen a few types, either a limit switch or optical switch. What type of homing switch would you suggest?
And it would be good to be able to have the speed set to say 200, but also have it so i can alter the speed.
Typical selection parameters include "what space do I have to mount it" and "what is in my box of goodies and other stuff that I happen to have left over from previous projects".
I don't have any of the parts for the homing switch, so its possibly a case of whats simpler to install for a newby.
This still might not give you a unit of speed. Maybe its easier to say that i want it to turn 300 degrees in about 1 second.
