ok I think the odd shape on the sector gear may be a problem. If I spin it slowly the sensor triggers but in a quick spin nothing. I had her all put back together and was testing to see if I needed the tension release and the sector gear ended up in a different position every time. Is it possible that the odd shape isn't allowing the sensor to be triggered long enough to send a signal when spun at high speed like the motor would? Is this something that can be adjusted or do I just need to put a standard sector gear in?
Also The metal selector plate was a nightmare. When taken off safe it triggered the sensor. I had to dremmel it back so it only triggered on full auto. Lots of pics taken and once it is completly successful I will post!
Gear sensor indicator:
Makes sense. The sensor indicator will be erratic during full operation cuz there is an update speed limit. There is a setting in Menu > Misc Settings > Fast Stream Polltime. It defaults at 50ms. I'd leave it asis. Point is, thats how fast the app gets updated. That why you will see a seemingly erroneous gear sw indicator. The purpose of the indicator is to allow simple testing as you have done with the slow turn test. So for now, ignore it.
Even without a brake, the piston should be stopping consistently at close to the same point. You can adjust the brake to turn on hard by setting brake duty to 100%, duration about 50ms, brake delay 3ms. You can also make sure the EOC delay is set to 0.
Your shot counter should be incrementing. That is what to rely on to know the gear sw is operating. If you aren't getting a cycle alarm then I think all that is working. Unless its running above 30 rounds per second the pistons end position should be consistent.
Without a piston with a spring to maintain resistance against the sector gear, ... Ill juz have to c if I can do some local testing and c what happens.
Do you have a link to the specific model you are working on? I should have asked right off your specs.
What does the Rate of Fire gage indicate now that its working... actually what is the voltage and run current indicating as well?
run current is way low. Use the histogram and see what you get.
