Set target position on Tic500 USB

Hello. I got a new Tic500 USB. I try to use command line:

ticcmd --resume --position 1000

I expected the current position will be 1000, however it just moves to 200.

I’d appreciate if you could teach me what I am wrong.

Thank you very much.

Hello, Cao.

I moved your post to the “Motor controllers/drivers and motors” section of the forum since it was more appropriate.

Is the red LED on the Tic lighting up when the motor stops spinning? If so, I suspect you have the command timeout enabled. This error will be triggered if the Tic does not receive a command for the specified length of time (default is 1 second). You can send a “Reset command timeout” command every second to get around this, or you can disable the command timeout feature using the Tic Control Center by unchecking the “Enable command timeout” checkbox in the “Input and motor settings" tab.


Hello Brandon,

Thank you very much. I got it.
