Y-axis enconder don't work


#1

We started having trouble with the y-axis encoder. When the encoder is toggled to on in the web app, and you tell the FarmBot to move to a position, it will move 3 or 4 times in very, very small amounts, virtually going no where, and then stops moving. Once I turn the encoder off, it starts acting normal again.

Has anybody had this problem or anything similar to this?


#2

Did you try to invert the encoder with the toggle in the hardware settings as Gabriel posted in the other thread you replied?

One more thing that could be helpful:

  • Move the Y-axis by hand for like 100mm and check what the encoder’s output is, as you can see in the green box of the picture (SCALED ENCODER).
  • Post a screenshot of this box if this does not fix your issue already.
