#### Power Guards

Using motor controllers with large motors can pose a risk for your power supply. If your supply does not have protective features built-in, you can use a Power Guard Phidget to prevent damage from power spikes from back EMF that is generated when motors brake or change direction. We recommend that you use the SAF2000 for any motor with a current rating between 1 and 5 amperes, and the SAF1000 for motors above 5A.

## Part 2: Using Your Phidget

The DCC1100 lets you control one brushless DC motor with hall-effect feedback. With this Phidget, you can set the velocity (forward or reverse) and acceleration of your motor, or set a specific target position using the position controller built into the Phidgets software libraries. You can also monitor the controller temperature for cooling management and safety.

The DCC1100 requires an 8-30V DC power supply.

### Explore Your Phidget Channels Using The Control Panel

1. Open your Control Panel, and you will find the following channels:

2. Double click on a channel to open an example program. Each channel belongs to a different channel class:

How do I know what channel, serial number, or hub port to use in my program?

Before you open a Phidget channel in your program, you can set these properties to specify which channel to open. You can find this information through the Control Panel.

1. Open the Control Panel and double-click on the red map pin icon:

2. The Addressing Information window will open. Here you will find all the information you need to address your Phidget in your program.

See the Phidget22 API for your language to determine exact syntax for each property.

Setting the Change Trigger and Data Interval

The Change Trigger is the minimum change in the sensor data needed to trigger a new data event. The Data Interval is the time (in ms) between data events sent out from your Phidget. You can modify one or both of these values to achieve different data outputs. You can learn more about these two properties here.

Stall Velocity

If the load on your motor is large, your motor may begin rotating more slowly, or even fully stall. Depending on the voltage across your motor, this may result in a large amount of current through both the controller and the motor. In order to prevent damage in these situations, you can use the StallVelocity property.

The StallVelocity should be set to the lowest velocity you would expect from your motor. The controller will then monitor the motor's velocity, as well as the Velocity, and prevent a 'dangerous stall' from occuring. If the controller detects a dangerous stall, it will immediately reduce the Velocity (i.e. average voltage) to 0 and an error will be reported to your program.

• A 'dangerous stall' will occur faster when the Velocity is higher (i.e. when the average voltage across the motor is higher)
• A 'dangerous stall' will occur faster as (StallVelocity - motor velocity) becomes larger .

Setting StallVelocity to 0 will turn off stall protection functionality.

Rescale Factor

Rescale Factor can be set to change the motor position units into something more useful, such as degrees or rotations. The following video explains how to set the Rescale Factor using a stepper controller as an example.

Instead of steps, brushless DC motors work in commutations. The number of commutations per rotation is equal to the number of poles multiplied by the number of phases. So, if you have an 8-Pole, 3-Phase motor, the motor will have 24 commutations per rotation. For this motor, to change the target position units from communications to rotations, you would set the rescale factor to 1/24, or 0.0416.

Control Loop Parameters

In order to get the desired behavior from your controller, you will have to tune your control parameters. This video explains the tuning procedure and gives information on how the controller works.

My motor moves away from the target position in Position Controller mode.

Check your motor wires are hooked up correctly to the A B C terminals. Of the six possible wiring permutations, only one will result in normal rotation.

Four of the wiring permutations will cause the motor to stall, and the other will cause reverse rotation.

Check your motor’s datasheet for the correct wiring.

For specifications that deal with acceleration and velocity limits, see the API tab.
