analog channel on a Trust TA805-D. The methods shown here are applicable
to other analog feedbacks from a high level. Some modification of the
analog input pointers will likely need to be done to adapt this code
to other sources of analog input. It is important to understand that because of the way that analog
inputs are sent back to the controller, only the odd number (input 1 and 3 on a TA805-D) ADCs can be used as control loop feedback. This is because the ADC inputs are 16 bits and two ADC inputs are packed
into one word that the feedback loop reads. An example: Input for ADC 0 and 1 looks like this: 0xaaaabbbb, where aaaa is ADC 1
and bbbb is ADC 0. This means that you can use ADC 1 (aaaa) because the contribution of
ADC 0 (bbbb) is less than one LSB bit on ADC 1 (insignificant noise). In addition, this program will show you how to scale the analog
feedback so that you do not get an ananlog input that is shifted up
by 16 bits (multiplied by 65384). This rescaling actually will remove
the even ADC completely. Warning! This is a sample program to assist in the integration of an
MEI motion controller with your application. It may not contain all
of the logic and safety features that your application requires The msgCHECK(...) macros used in the following sample code are intended
to convey our strong belief that ALL error return codes should be checked.
Actual application code should use specific error handling techniques (other
than msgCHECKs) best suited to your internal error recovery methods. */ #include <stdlib.h>

This program sets the axis encoder input to the address that points to the adc input.
It increments the pointer to the ADC for the ADC number. Only Odd numbered ADCs can
be used.
axisNum - number of the axis whose actual position is to be configured.
blockNumber - number of the TA805D node.
adcIndex - ADC index on the TA805D. Actual position is scaled by 1 / 2^16 to compensate for using the upper 16 bits of the
ADC word.
