Smart Motor Read

Represent connected V5 Smart Motor and read encoder values

  • Library:
  • Simulink Coder Support Package for VEX EDR V5 Robot Brain / Actuators

Description

The Smart Motor Read block represents a V5 Smart Motor connected to a specified port on a VEX® EDR V5 Robot Brain, and read the values from the in-built encoder of the V5 Smart Motor.

Ports

Input

expand all

Connect to a signal that resets the in-built encoder of V5 Smart Motor.

Dependencies

This input appears only when you set the Reset mode parameter to Reset by external signal.

Data Types: double

Output

expand all

The value that is read from the in-built encoder of V5 Smart Motor, based on the selected Encoder unit.

For example, if the motor has completed two rotations (assuming that the gear ratio is 36:1):

  • tick count = 3600

  • degrees = 720

  • rotations = 2

Dependencies

This output depends on the value selected for the Encoder unit parameter.

Data Types: double

The velocity of V5 Smart Motor as read from the in-built encoder. The sign determines the direction of rotation of the motor, and the amplitude determines the velocity in RPM. Positive value indicates that the motor is rotating in clockwise direction and negative value indicates anticlockwise direction. An output value of 0 indicates that the motor is stationary.

Dependencies

This output appears only when you select the Output velocity and fault check box.

Data Types: double

The fault indication that is decoded from the V5 Smart Motor. The output value represents these type of faults:

  • 1: Over-current fault

  • 2: Over-temperature fault

  • 3: Both over-current and over-temperature faults

Dependencies

This output appears only when you select the Output velocity and fault check box.

Data Types: double

Parameters

expand all

Select the Smart Port on the VEX EDR V5 Robot Brain to which the V5 Smart Motor is connected. There are 21 Smart Ports on the VEX EDR V5 Robot Brain that you can connect to V5 Smart Motor.

Smart Port must be unique for each block in the model. If multiple Smart Motor Read blocks with the same port are used, the last executed Smart Motor Read block may only be active. For the Vex Robotics Competition, you can use the same Smart Motor Read block with the same Smart Port in the driver mode or the autonomous mode.

Select the unit for reading the V5 Smart Motor's position from the in-built encoder. The position can be read in terms of tick counts, number of rotations, or degrees

Select the reset mode for reading values from the in-built encoder of the V5 Smart Motor.

When you select Reset by external signal, an additional input – Reset – is added to the block, which can be connected to a reset signal.

Enter the time interval at which the block reads values from the in-built encoder of the V5 Smart Motor.

When you set this parameter to -1, Simulink® determines the best sample time for the block based on the block context within the model.
