Simucube failed during firmware update

Hi,

I tried to update simucube from 0812 to 0.9.7 and up to 0.11.2 however started getting some weird errors after and there was no ffb in the games. Decided to downgrade it all back to 0812 but something crashed during firmware update and simucube conf tool stopped seeing the device.
At the moment managed to put it in dfu mode using dip switch and update firmware to 1.7.9 with Granity.
However when I turn dfu mode off simucube software is still not detecting anything.
Also, when I release emergency stop and start Granity it keeps asking me to Restart Drive over and over.
What do I have to do to get my wheel working again? Please help :frowning:

Thanks,
Jakub

Most likely there is a setting wrong in the IONI drive. It would help if you showed all settings in Granity so we could check it out.

Here’s what I got after the update

And here are settings from Granity

please PM me if the forum software is preventing from uploading the rest of the images. We tried to relax the limitations but there is a large number of settings…

Mika,

Were would I find settings section in Granity?
Here’s what I got when used ‘Save settings to file’

Are those the settings you need?

Yes, these are all we need. Let me check these.

The settings are shown in the different tabs in Granity. The last tab, “Testing”, is the most important as it shows the motor status and all possible fault codes.

Mika,

Also, just in case if needed led status

OK, the Peak Current Limit setting is much too low - it might be that the firmware update from that early version caused it to be saved errorneously that low. This was fixed in later firmware versions so that triggering a Simucube FW update would not cause this to happen.

Connect to Granity, set Peak Current Limit on Machine tab to 12.86 A, and save settings to drive, and you should be good to go!

Mika, you’re a star bud!!!
You can’t even imagine how happy I’m now :slight_smile:
Thank you very, very much!!!
Now need to play with Simucube settings for AC as lost all and current are a bit too ‘soft’ for me :slight_smile:
