Hi Mark,


I believe Mark Clift has implemented this API for Galil motors (https://github.com/motorapp/Galil-3-0).  I made a brief stab at using it, but wasn't able to test because I don't have the hardware.

Folks,

 

I am giving a talk at the motion control workshop at ICALEPCS in two weeks titled "Complex coordinated motion in EPICS".  This is about using the ProfileMove API that is supported in the Model 3 motor API in asynMotorController and asynMotorAxis.  This API allows defining complex trajectories in N-space and then executing them.

 

From asynMotorController.h

  /* These are the functions for profile moves */

  virtual asynStatus initializeProfile(size_t maxPoints);

  virtual asynStatus buildProfile();

  virtual asynStatus executeProfile();

  virtual asynStatus abortProfile();

  virtual asynStatus readbackProfile();

 

From asynMotorAxis.h

  virtual asynStatus initializeProfile(size_t maxPoints);

  virtual asynStatus defineProfile(double *positions, size_t numPoints);

  virtual asynStatus buildProfile();

  virtual asynStatus executeProfile();

  virtual asynStatus abortProfile();

  virtual asynStatus readbackProfile();

 

I have implemented this API on the Newport XPS controller.  What I would like to know is if other sites have implemented this API for other controllers, and/or if they are using it on the Newport XPS.

 

Thanks,

Mark
