I have the manual off your site. I really didn't correlate the display rdlr as being rDIR. The manual is pretty good at showcasing the upper and lower case characters. I just didn't correlate that one. . Like I said trying to sort out errors cause by my own lack on knowledge yet from symptoms of issues Just like trying to interpret StEP where t and P both have underscores.

I found with the new pots the position alignments for the mode pot required significant changes. Also the values were widened out quite a bit to help reduce deadband between the positions.
Here are the actual values from the cal program
LED 1023
POS 934
DEL 851
INT 764
Bulb 658
SHO 586
DIST 499
RAM 427
RPT 347
RVS 274
MGO 172
SGO 87
CONT 32

Of course these values will vary depending on how a person aligns the know when installing. I tried to balance it out on either side of the LED and CONT. I think these POTS have a wider operation then your older larger ones. I then used these values and set each of the modes to be +/- 20 from the center values. so POS becomes 954-914

Something else is these fault might be temperature sensitive. When I first power up the unit everything seems pretty stable. After using it for a while you can feel heat coming off the back site of the arduino on the case. not much but it is warmer. The warmer it gets the more frequent strange things appear. I think I'm going to have to run the cal program and see how much shift occurs due to component heating.

When the unit was cold I am having a hard time getting the POS to shift into SY or ASN display by hitting the reset then the Arrows.

Well I didn't see how to attach a file on this forum so I will past the contents in the thread.

Here is an example of what happens to the resistor values when the rail is connected and later disconnected based on the serial output. You will see how stable the results become once the rail is disconnected.

Yahoo!!!
Found a solution to one of the problems. Anywhere in the code where Serial.print uses a capital P if replaced with a lower case p will display a correct P on the new displays. As a matter of fact a person should probably change all the serial prints to the character case that will actually be displayed according to the display table found at

https://dlnmh9ip6v2uc.cloudfront.net/assets/2/a/0/1/6/51e8698bce395f2b3c000001.png

The nly one that would not be correct is that a person would need to us p and it would actually display a P.

Thats awesome! Good find

I can go through the code and make the updates. :)

How are you wiring up the motor? we shouldnt see such a variance when it is connected

Since the board really doesn't label the pins properly I will use the terms defined by the polulu board. So in looking at the wire insertion side of the 4 terminals the terminal assignments and motor lead colours are the following from left to right

Terminal 1B 1A 2A 2B
Motor lead Blu Red Blk Grn

I believe the problem is associated to two issues.
1. you used the same trace width for the motor lead wires as you did with the voltage and digital lines. When you wired using the protoboard you have much more current carrying capacity than your traces.
2. The polulu design calls for a 100uf cap to be installed between VMOT and GND. You didn't include any capacitor on the board design. This capacitor is to help with in rush current demands used to excite the motor leads. Here again you have a small trace for the 12V line leading to the VMOT line. I think what is happening is the power cycle of the polulu board is such that it is pulling down the 12V bus voltage hence causing the power to fluctuate that is used to power the controller POTS and switches. This would be indicitive that the traces leading to VMOT is not heavy enough to manage the current surge.

I will apply a 100uf cap to the VMOT and GND leads directly at the Polulu board. The capacitor should manage the in rush current from the driver chip and prevent the 12V from being pulled down and not loading up the trace current. It's going to be a tight solder job to get the cap leads on there without any bridging or mechanical support. It may be a few days before I get to doing that or it might be a little longer if I don't get to it before the weekend.

Im not sure where you got the motor, but the ones i get from phidgets normally have the same color wires, i normally go left to right as Black Green Red Blue.

The trace width should be enough, i was running one of these on the same board.
http://www.omc-stepperonline.com/9deg-nema-17-bipolar-stepper-44ncm623ozin-17hm191684s-p-12.html?zenid=2216b637ff2ca15b25efb891ae836cd8. I had to put a heat sink on the driver chip, but it worked just fine.

Ill re-rest and confirm when i get home

As for the capacitor, i did experiment around with them, we even used them for a little while, the Chronoshields we use still have the holes for them.
However we were unable to find that performance with and without the capacitor ever made any difference whatsoever, it certainly never seemed to cause anything like what you are encountering. Chronos HD uses a Nema 23 stepper with 2.1amp draw without issues.

do you have a link for your motor?

So i checked the PCB files.... the width of the 12v trace is 15 thousandths. (.04cm)

This is the same width as the first gen of Chronoshields we used back with the DB-9 shields.

These were not known for being problematic, we changed designs mainly because through hole resistors are annoying to use and to move from DB-9 to DIN8. i would much rather use surface mount components when possible. I used this same controller on my own Chronos HD rail with the older nema 23 phidgets motor for well over a year and still do today without any issues. I never got around to swapping the connection on my own HD rail to a DIN8.

This is the motor i have been using....

On the newer Chronoshields I changed the size on almost every trace to 25 thousandths, this was not a reaction to anything i just sort of did it while i was re-designing parts of the board.

At this point I don't think the issue is with the design of the board. There were two versions of these made, the first version had the EN pin on the motor going to GND instead of +5v, an oversight on my part. Other than that they seemed to work just fine, even with a motor taking a 1.68 amp/phase draw. The second design was identical to the first with 2 exeptions, it says Ver 2 instead of Ver 1 and corrected the pin from GND to +5v.

We only used capacitors on the VMOT / GND for a little while, but like i mentioned earlier we saw no improvement or impairment to using them vs not.

I still have some boards left, but will be ordering more soon. I will take your recommendations and add in a spot for the capacitor, and thicken the traces, but this trace thickness was not a problem on the first Chronoshield design, we have at least 50-100 of those still out there being used with a variety of motors.

Let me know your thoughts, if you feel the boards are the problem i will be happy to add those changes and send you four new boards.

I suppose one way to test the thickness of the trace would be to solder a small jumper wire.

OK.. back home at the shop

http://www.omc-stepperonline.com/09deg-nema-17-bipolar-stepper-motor-2a-46ncm-17hm192004s-p-122.html?zenid=244bff572128ee2dc3e0d49dac1e7d76

using the motor above...

Manufacturer Part Number 17HM19-2004S
Motor Type Bipolar Stepper
Step Angle 0.9°
Holding Torque 46Ncm(65.1oz.in)
Rated Current/phase 2.0A
Phase Resistance 1.4ohms
Recommended Voltage 12-24V
Inductance 3.0mH±20%(1KHz)

I have it wired from left to right, Black Green Red Blue. it works just fine. starts up, no issues..

Here are the results from my testing, unless i am just using USB power everything looks pretty clean, i do not see any difference with motor attached vs not attached. This motor is close to the limits of what the motor driver is capable of.

output from the calibration with motor attached, USB power. I see some slight variance, but nothing major.

Now this is truley interesting........

i have it all setup. With the motor attached, looking at the chronoshield with the Chronotimer in the upright reading position and the usb to the left...

if the potentiometer has the FLAT side straight down towards me, everything is cool. This is normally where i try to set these.

Then if i rotate it CLOCKwise 1/4 turn, it all goes to shit. and this is what i see.. it looks very similar to yours.

I think the potentiometer just needs to be adjusted.

Remember, these systems to not need full power. it just is not needed, they are extremely efficient with the lead-screws.

Todd you know quite a bit about this, i would really like to hear your thoughts and considerations about this.

THank you!
