    Closed: Re: SmartScope ZIP 250 Z-axis

    I got the service manual and it states for the motor to be Type 23, tachless. Did some google search and found that tachless would mean that it senses the speed from motor back emf, so if I...

    Closed: Driving stepper motor

    Hi,

    I made a small program to drive stepper motor with PIC 16F1847, TB6600 driver and 17HS2408 motor. Motor is driven 36° in every button push which equals 160 microsteps. I had no problem just...

    I've taken your valuable feedback into account and added low pass filter. Signal should be somewhat steady DC voltage but in vehicle use I guess there is many interference sources.

    I terminated the not used op amp, but it didn't make any differences. Could it be then so that on breadboard this is not possible to make work?

    This is getting more confusing. ADC input pin GP0 is messing up things. If I plug that GP0 to VDD, GP1 is not oscillating anymore. If plugged to GND it does oscillate (or some other low voltage in...

    You're correct, no need to convert the ADC reading to voltages, I could use as well the ADC readout directly. It just made it easier for me to undestand the voltage directly instead.. That part...
