How can I change 1067 stepper controller serial number?

Postby peter2012 » Tue Mar 03, 2015 10:06 pm

:D Hi,
Any one can help me? :shock:
I want to my 1067 serial number to be simple: 001001~001010 and 002001~002010.
We have some 1067 and each computer control 10pcs 1067. The complex serial number made me crazy!!! I've made some mistakes!
Any one can help me to change the serial number please?

While you cannot change the serial, you can change the device label with setDeviceLabel (or the equivalent function in the language you're using). Alternatively, you could use a define statement in your program to make it more clear which board is being used. For example:

#define 139284 controller_1

Thanks. Actually my friend Lee has hundreds of 1067 copy. And I can't use his boards on my computer. You know, 10 1067 link to my computer.
I want to buy his 1067, it's really cheap. How can I do to get 10 same 1067 work well on my computer?

To connect ten 1067s to your computer, you'll need one or more USB hubs. For that many boards, powered USB hubs will be necessary.

Thanks for your advice. The question is: when I get 10 same 1067s with same serial# 234562, how can my computer control motors correctly?
I mean, after starting control panel, the first #234562 control A motor, second #234562 control B motor, etc. Restart the control panel, am I sure the first #234562 control A motor? All 10 1067s are the same:(

I should not be possible that all the 1067's have the same serial number. Are you sure the serial numbers are the same and not just the label?
