v0.8.2 - Debugging Lasers and Turntables (not working)

Hi @mario.

Installed v 0.8.2. Webserver seems to be working great.

I can get the Camera Preview.

I can also make the LED ring turn on, but I cannot make the lasers (2) turn on, and cannot make the turntable turn on as well.

I think this is needed in order to make the first calibration, right?

Summary:

  • Camera Preview: OK
  • LED Ring: OK
  • Lasers (2): NOK
  • Turntable: NOK

How can I debug lasers or the turntable?

Is there a way to get an specific log for the connection or to send commands via the terminal in order to test faster than using the webserver?

Log is attached.

@rafaelcgo you must change this in yor config file (the dokumentasion is not yet perfekt) --- change the letter "1" to "2"

"laser": {
"interleaved": "False",
"numbers": 2,
"color": "R (RGB)"
}

You need to bridge the safety switch connector. See https://fabscanpi-server.readthedocs.io/en/latest/hardware_electronics.html

Section "Connecting the Lasers"

That was the thing! Lasers on. ? 

But the Turntable is still not moving. ? 

I've changed the config from 6400 to 3200 already (mine is 200 step) but still not rotating.

Do you have any tips? Do you think it might be a HW issue as well?

Even with 6400 config the turntable should rotate, the difference would only be the step size, right?

@rafaelcgo

maybe you should check the coils connection ( metering Ohms ) of the motor. Or the Motor Driver.
