Panohead Too Fast

by jkoenig01 » Tue Jan 27, 2015 8:20 pm

So last night I was tinkering, and I think what happened was I plugged in the hand controller while a command was being sent over bluetooth, and now my "fast" (#5 on the keypad) goto/slew speed is faster than it was, and I don't know how to make it go back. I'm afraid I'll wear something out if I leave it like this.

Any ideas?

Hi!

I guess you´re talking about the Panoshoot?

Thanks for responding so quickly.

Sorry, it's the Merlin/Orion head.

Using either the wired keypad or bluetooth it goes faster than normal. Somehow I reprogrammed it's default "fast" speed faster, and it saved it...

When I talk directly to it over bluetooth, I can still tell it to start moving at a specific speed and it works properly. However, when I tell it to go to a specific position either over bluetooth or with the keypad, it's faster than normal.

I also noticed that if I tell it to go to a saved position, it overshoots it, and then slows down and goes back to where it should have stopped...

What are you using to 'talk directly to it over Bluetooth'?

I have a bluetooth-serial adapter and a usb bluetooth dongle. I wrote a python script to send commands to it.

I don't normally, but I just checked, and the Move buttons in papywizard make it turn at the proper normal speed. It is not a permanent change though.

--When it does a "Shoot" routine, it too goes at the new faster speed...

I'm out of ideas. I cannot imagine how you can have reprogrammed the firmware doing what you said you were doing.
