Title: Message
Dear Fellow Tech-Talkers,
 
 
Due to the wait of requests, please follow the below link to the Hytec 8601 IP Motor Controller EPICS Driver.
 
 
 
The 8601 is a Quad Stepper Motor Driver IP Card, where the hardware was designed to fully support the Motor Record.
There is a link to the notes on the same page.
 
 
The code is not a full release, as we are waiting for Diamond/Argonne to finalise their modifications to the motor record and a gap in my work load, but instead it uses....
 
  • 4 ao records (for start speed, max speed, acceleration and movement in steps) . 
  • A single mbbiDirect record for monitoring the motor status bits.   
 
There is records for each of the four motors on each card, and I have included an example edm screen.
 
It is fully functional, but not fully commented and contains loads of superfluous debug code, and is presently used for hardware testing.
