I’m using a Tic T500 with a potentiometer for position control of a very small stepper motor linear linear stage.
I currently have it set up with a limit switch which homes the system when power is applied. But after the homing is done, the linear stage just goes back to the original power-on position.
Is it possible to configure the T500 so that the potentiometer is setting the absolute position?
For example, what I’d really like is for the system to home after power up, and then for the stepper to move to the position dictated by the position of the potentiometer. If the analog signal is 0 volts it would stay at the home position, if it is 5 volts it would go to the maximum number of steps, if it’s 2.5 volts it goes to the halfway position, etc.
