NAME

orient − Provide a PID command input for orientation mode based on current spindle position, target angle and orient mode

SYNOPSIS

loadrt orient [count=N|names=name1[,name2...]]

DESCRIPTION

This component is designed to support a spindle orientation PID loop by providing a command value, and fit with the motion spindle-orient support pins to support the M19 code.

The spindle is assumed to have stopped in an arbitrary position. The spindle encoder position is linked to the position pin. The current value of the position pin is sampled on a positive edge on the enable pin, and command is computed and set as follows: floor(number of full spindle revolutions in the position sampled on positive edge) plus angle/360 (the fractional revolution) +1/-1/0 depending on mode.

The mode pin is interpreted as follows:

0: the spindle rotates in the direction with the lesser angle, which may be clockwise or counterclockwise.

1: the spindle rotates always rotates clockwise to the new angle.

2: the spindle rotates always rotates counterclockwise to the new angle.

HAL USAGE

On motion.spindle-orient disconnect the spindle control and connect to the orient-pid loop:

loadrt orient names=orient
loadrt pid names=orient-pid
net orient-angle motion.spindle-orient-angle orient.angle
net orient-mode motion.spindle-orient-mode orient.mode
net orient-enable motion.spindle-orient orient.enable orient-pid.enable
net spindle-in-pos orient.is-oriented motion.spindle-is-oriented
net spindle-pos encoder.position orient.position orient-pid.feedback
net orient-command orient.command orient-pid.command

FUNCTIONS

orient.N

(requires a floating-point thread) Update command based on enable, position, mode and angle.

PINS

orient.N.enable

bit in enable angular output for orientation mode

orient.N.mode

s32 in 0: rotate - shortest move; 1: always rotate clockwise; 2: always rotate counterclockwise

orient.N.position

float in spindle position input, unit 1 rev

orient.N.angle

float in orient target position in degrees, 0 <= angle < 360

orient.N.command

float out target spindle position, input to PID command

orient.N.poserr

float out in degrees - aid for PID tuning

orient.N.is-oriented

bit out This pin goes high when poserr < tolerance. Use to drive motion.spindle-is-oriented

orient.N.tolerance

float in (default: 0.5) The tolerance in degrees for considering the align completed
