How to Self-test the Closed-loop Driver

Under normal circumstances, operation of the motor requires that the external controller send pulse commands to the driver so that it can make the motor run.
If the system fails in this way, we can't tell which part has the problem: the motor? the driver? the controller?

The purpose of this article is to assess whether or not the driver and motor are at fault by testing the driver and motor without external control influences.

Using the CL57T as an example, after connecting the driver and the motor and connecting them to PC via RS232, the following steps are performed:

Open the driver package software MotionStudio (Ver 1.4.7) and select the port to connect.

Open the trial run interface.

Click "Servo Enable" and set "OFF" to "ON".

After setting "ON", you can see that "CCW" and "CW" are in the clickable state. A this time, you can click to control the motor operation.

If you find it troublesome to control the "pointing", you can also set "Position 1" and "Position 2" to make the motor run automatically

Please note that the values of "Position 1" and "Position 2" should not be the same; after entering the value, please press "Enter" to save it.

After saving, you can click "Run" to run the motor.

After performing the above steps, if the motor runs without problems, it means that there is no problem with our drive and the motor itself, it may be that your controller is not compatible with our product, or the controller needs to be reset and tested.
The above steps can also be used to detect the use of the product at the first time you receive it.
