Simucube wheel not working


#21

gday mate

when you say map the wires does that mean get a multi meter and to map them from the plug on the mige to the plug going into the simucube board ?


#22

Thats what I would do to be extra sure.


#23

Hi Evan,
Yes, pin-pin as per my schematic above…


#24

thats what i used but ill ill start fresh …now the plug on the mige is numbered are those numbers going to be right ? for example if i go to the pin numbered 1 get my meter and find the right one at simucube plug end im on the right track ?


#25

The mapping above is correct, with the hand-written ones the encoder plug on the motor side, and the typed numbers the Simucube plug-end. Is this exactly the opposite to your thinking? Follow my advice and you will be ok though.

Make very sure about how you read the pins on the d-sub 15-pin connector, it is easy to mess that up. Also, the shell of the d-sub 15 must be connected to pin1 on the mige encoder plug…


#26

ok sweet ive fixed the encoder issue now i have no force feed back i can make the motor spin in the granity software so i no there power there but there no force in the wheel at all


#27

There is no FFB when in granity mode. Please spin the wheel back so that the position feedback value is around 0, and then exit Granity and re-enable the normal Operational mode in Simucube.

Please take a look at the known issues in the firmware download page:
https://granitedevices.com/wiki/SimuCUBE_firmware_releases
i.e. change bumbstop ramp range to larger than 1 at least once; otherwise there will be no FFB effects.

This issue for new installs will be fixed in the next release.


#28

gday mate yes ive done that its set to 9 and still no feedback at all

With those settings, there should be some resistance when you turn the wheel over bumpstop angles.


#31

there is nothing at all … the only thing i have not done is connect the shell wire to pin 1 as i did want to blow any up cause it already has a wire going to it …do you think this could be the issue …as i said i can get the wheel to spin it granity in both directions so i no theres power there … should the wheel spin or move when i power it up to cause nothing happens at start up

cheers


#32

the phasing routine should happen at startup.


#33

nothing at start up would the shell wire not being connect to pin cause this ?


#34

no. Does the wheel rotate in Simucube?


#35

if i turn it yes but no by itself


#36

check your PM’s here for a support offer.


#37

System works!

Some confusion still with the bumpstop parameters. There is still a bug that causes no FFB condition. I have now added that to the list of things to do before releasing the next public firmware version!

Thanx Mika :wink:

Appreciate your efforts in always keeping us posted on developments!

Nice. Better use some reconstruction filter though.
