New Features

04.04.00

  Addition of Encoder Filter bits to Motor Configuration
   

Reference Number: 1256

    Type: New Feature
    Motion Console Version: 04.04.00
   

Description:
Access has been added to MEIMotorConfig.Encoder.filterDisable.
"Primary Encoder Filter" and "Secondary Encoder Filter" fields were added to the Motor Summary, Configuration tab.


  Row added to the Motion Supervisor Status window
   

Reference Number: 1247

    Type: New Feature
    Motion Console Version: 04.04.00
   

Description:
"Action Source" was added to the Motion Supervisor Summary, Status tab.


  Display User Label in Column Header
   

Reference Number: 1244

    Type: New Feature
    Motion Console Version: 04.04.00
   

Description:
For objects that have user labels, the label is now displayed regardless of which tab is selected and is also visible when the user label row is scrolled off the screen.

 

General Changes

04.04.04

  Make changes necessary to add MEIMotorDemandModeCUSTOM
    Reference Number: 1395
    Type: General Change
    Motion Console Version: 04.04.04
   

Description:
Made necessary changes to accommodate the new Motor Demand Mode, MEIMotorDemandModeCUSTOM. Added "Custom" to the combo-box for the Demand Mode row on the Motor/Config tab.

 

04.04.02

  Setting Motor I/O makes an unnecessary call to mpiMotorConfigSet(...)
    Reference Number: 1282
    Type: General Change
    Motion Console Version: 04.04.02
   

Description:
When a Motor I/O bit is called, Motion Console called mpiMotorConfigSet(...), as well as mpiMotorGeneralOutSet(...). The call to mpiMotorConfigSet(...) significantly slowed down the setting of the value. Tto optimize the setting of Motor I/O, mpiMotorConfigSet(...) is no longer called.

 

04.04.00

  SqNode Error Status Info is not Correct
    Reference Number: 1265
    Type: General Change
    Motion Console Version: 04.04.00
   

Description:
If a node died, Motion Console would not refresh the values of several members of the MEISqNodeStatus structure. The members not being refreshed were: crcError, upStreamError and downStreamError. Changes have been made so that Motion Console will display the values returned by meiSqNodeStatus whether or not the node is dead.

 

Bug Fixes

04.04.03

  Column Header Height Not Set Correctly
    Reference Number: 1359
    Type: Bug Fix
    Motion Console Version: 04.04.03
   

Description:
If a summary window displayed children of multiple controllers, then the column header would display a large space between the object name and the controller name. The controller name was not completely visible. This problem was fixed.


  Displayed Object name is not the User Label
    Reference Number: 1358
    Type: Bug Fix
    Motion Console Version: 04.04.03
   

Description:
There are many cases where an object name is displayed, but it is not the User Label. The name that is being displayed is the default name. In the case of the controller, the default name is the name that the controller was given when it was added by the user. For other objects, the default name is the object type followed by a number. The default name should only be displayed if the User Label is empty. If the User Label of an object changes, then windows that are open and displaying the object name need to be refreshed to display the new name.

Examples where object names are displayed:
Object Explorer
   - including the image of an object being dragged
Summary Window Titles
   - the controller name is displayed
Summary Window Column Labels
   - the controller name is displayed if children of multiple controllers are being displayed
Object List Configuration Dialog Box

The correct names are now displayed.

 

04.04.02

  Motion Console crashes when object count decreases with explorer open
    Reference Number: 1313
    Type: Bug Fix
    Motion Console Version: 04.04.02
   

Description:
Motion Console crashed if you select an Axis in the Object Explorer window and then set the Axis Count in the Control Summary. A crash of Motion Console could be be provoked by forcing any object to be destroyed while it is selected in the Object Explorer window, including Node and I/O objects. This problem was fixed.


  Motor Secondary Feedback is N/A after downloading Node FPGA
    Reference Number: 1293
    Type: Bug Fix
    Motion Console Version: 04.04.02
   

Description:
If a node had an invalid FPGA image and a valid image was downloaded, the motor associated with the node would display the secondary feedback value as N/A. This problem was fixed.

 

04.04.00

  Motor Event Configuration tab does not have settings for SW limits
    Reference Number: 1233
    Type: Bug Fix
    Motion Console Version: 04.04.00
   

Description:
The Motor Event Configuration tab doesn't have settings for SW limits' "direction sensitivity." This problem was fixed.
