what difference between 1063_0 and 1063_1 stepper controller

Postby brussieux » Mon Jul 02, 2012 8:06 am

hi,

i recently bought one 1063 in its earlier version refered at as "number 0" version.
One new version said "number 1" now exists, with more capacitors on the photograph of the product shown on the web(my version has only 1 capacitor onboard)...
i should have waited for this new version which works probably better than mine :(
i would like to understand what is new with the new version. Could a low capacitance explain that my stepper sometimes does not start...
if convinced, i will probably buy the 1063_1...

The new capacitors add extra protection against power surges - they don't affect how the stepper is driven at all.

If your stepper sometimes doesn't start this probably means that you need to optimize you currentLimit value, or you need to use a lower acceleration, or both.

... thank you for your prompt reply: what i am doing today is ordering one brand new 1063 from your local representative (gotronic, france), and try it....

hoping i will get one 1063_1 this time ;)

i will report to you with results of the test!

regards
