Thanks

No, it is not possible as the sleeping status is seen as a communication lost because the module simply stop to communicate.

I'm sure that was a pub quize question.
What is the only question a person cannot answer truthfully yes?
Are you asleep?

In the script you could wlog "Going to sleep at " + time$ + date$ before sending it to sleep, then wlog "Awake at " + time$ + date$ when it wakes up.

[Local Link Removed for Guests] wrote: [Local Link Removed for Guests]Sun May 19, 2024 6:48 pm if I change the editor windows arrangement to horizontal by shift crtlF2 , change the editor size and save this by shift crtlF3 , it does not remember the new size of the editor. Seems to return to a default size, when I recall the editor window.
Sorry! No Issue! I used the wrong keys combination to save the new windows size. Please add a feedback about the having saved status to the wishlist ;-)
I fixed in the version 1.53.4.
The keys are now active all the time (and not only when inside the log window) and there is a visual "sign" when these keys are used. The shortcut keys has also been updated

MANY THANKS for these features that I found in the change log of 1.53.4
----
Version 1.53.4
- Improved the customisation of the layout
These keys are active keys all the time
- CTRL+SHIFT+F1 - Set Vertical Layout
- CTRL+SHIFT+F2 - Set Horizontal Layout
- CTRL+SHIFT+F3 - Save Layout
- CTRL+SHIFT+F4 - Load Layout
- CTRL+SHIFT+F5 - Reset Layout
There is a "visual" flash of the screen when these keys are used
Editor (?) shortcuts keys updated

cicciocb,

I am very satisfied with the latest update of Annex32 basic.
Both the help(?) in the editor screen and the other functionalities are a wonderful addition and we will benefit greatly from them.
Did some tests and everything that has changed works very well.
My wishes have been incorporated in the latest version 1.53.4, thank you for this.

Also the stepper motor version flashed 1.53.4
This is not running very smoothly for me yet. Power supply is 12V and the brake current is 0.47A (total current 2 windings of motor supply when it is stationary) Motor Controller A4988: Step_ENABLE_pin=GND, DIR_pin=pin 2 ESP32, STEP_pin=pin 26 ESP32.
I use an A4988 module and a Nema17 motor (Anet A6 3D printer). 1B=black, 1A=green, 2A=blue, 2B=red. Resistance windings measured with Multi Tester-TC1: black-green: 9.27 mH and 142 ohm (4.5E universal meter), blue-red: 9.86 mH and 143 ohm (4.6E universal meter).
I also tried different combinations of MS1,MS2,MS3. I will investigate further to see if this is a hardware problem.
I have previously adjusted the motor current with the potentiometer on the module (runner ref: 0.65V => 0.74A max). Has anyone had any other experiences or spotted errors with my setup? Then I would like to hear that in a response?

What are your symptoms of "not running very smoothly" Jan ?

My setup runs fine, but is different to yours.
I am using a TB6600 for the driver, powered by 12v, which originally was driving a nema17, but now a nema23.
The actual nema17 motor voltages was originally 36v, but I upped it to 48v for max nema23 oomph.

The driver inputs work ok directly from esp32 3.2v outputs, and cos they are activated by differential voltage, ENAble is left floating.
Am using a UNO esp32 clone simply cos there is a convenient din rail socket available for it, and am using din rail 5v and 12v power supplies.

Originally was using firmware calculated positioning, which worked fine, but was worried about losing track in event of motor jam, so now ignoring calculated relative positioning and using proximity sensors for foolproof absolute positioning.
Is just a proof of concept test rig at the moment, but works well enough to avoid the expense of closed loop stepper motor and driver.

Normally I would update locally using the Online Flasher via ethernet, but 1.53.4 is only available from the Updater at the moment, and my isolated wifi cannot access the OTA url from the device wifi Config page.
I can download the update locally via ethernet from the Updater though - so a question I have been meaning to ask... is it possible for the browser Config page OTA to access a local downloaded file ?

You can download the file using the online updates page and upload using the toolkit OTA
