Its most time yellow, and sometimes even red on my device, but everything works fine.
That is quite normal since the setting
ALWAYS POWER MOTORS is active. The Z-Axis always has more load since the tool mount is pulling down by gravity.
Did you try lowering the
MAX SPEED (MM/S) setting?
If you activate the
DEBUG logs on your logs page,
set log levels to max,
you can probably see a log like this after moving the axis.
That means that your encoder did not detect the needed count of steps. There can be a few different reasons for that:
- Mechanical resistance that causes the motors to need more power
- Not enough motor power caused by a low motor current.
- Max encoder reading speed < actual moving speed
So I think that your axis does not move correctly anymore, since you activated the encoders to calibrate. I’d first try to reduce the max moving speed or increase the
MAX MISSED STEPS setting.
