Drive firmware update error turn system off and on again


Thank you that’s fine now


I suspected as much when I requested him to post a photo of the inside of his controller in the other thread :wink:

—>> MMOS to Simucube problem


Strangely, the previous IONICUBE build I’ve come across, said “unknown” hardware version, where as his build showed it being a Simucube. Simucube firmware determines this from a few resistors on some of the spare inputs, and I suspect some of the Discovery breakout boards in IONICUBE builds have configured some lines in a way that this mistake can be made in software. I will briefly investigate whether there is a sure way of determining if the board is a Discovery vs. Simucube.


If the wheel feels very notch you may have the wrong info setup for your encoder.
Make sure to set the setting in granity to the actual figure ie 2500,5000, or 10000 and when you enter the setting in MMOS it is 4 x the original number ie 10000,20000 or 40000


Cheers Mika, interesting case indeed :wink: Let us know if you find anything interesting.

@Joe: Yes, thát, or, perhaps an incorrect wired power-phase can do this too…


Hi Beano,

Yes if the motor phases are wired incorrectly it will do it for sure.
I assumed he had not made any changes to the hardware, but you know what they say about assumptions! :slight_smile:

Regarding Simucube controls:
Strange thing I have found when upgrading a Simucube control from MMOS to Simucube software, is sometimes you must install an early version of the Simucube software and then install the later version.
If you try to install the latest software it gets stuck in a loop and the install will not finish. It normally fails when trying to do the hardware setup. I am guessing it is partially due to what version firmware is on the IONI

I hope all is well down under. I guess it is getting HOT!!!


First report of this kind. I would very much like a debug log from when it gets into such loop!


If I have one again I will make sure to do that for you.
