Error Control of a Family of Geckos.
When you connect the Err/Res terminals of a set of Gecko 320 Servo Drives together, will all drives stop if one of them faults out? I am asking this because I have heard that the faulting drive will not be able to pull the other two drives low enough to stop them? There are allot of drives out there that just have the Err/Res terminal wired together, but I am wondering if this is the proper way?
Marris has a circuit that is suppose to fix this. Is anyone using this circuit? How do you like it?
I also found this device http://www.aree.com/gecko/index.html that uses a PIC to control and look after the Error circuit. Is anyone using one of these? How is it working for you?
Interested in any information on the proper way to connect the Err/Res terminals of a set of Gecko 320's? Thanks for the help.
This is what I use, so far so good. Read the entire thread for updated info. The linked schematic has been updated to reflect the advice.
