Detecting Stall w/ PhidgetStepper 1067

Postby AdamLee » Mon Aug 12, 2019 7:51 am

We have a device with a stepper motor controlling a larger assembly which could jam under certain circumstances, especially during development phases where we're modifying geometry. I was wondering if there is a way with the 1067 to detect a motor stall? I'm sure we could rid up a second sensor to detect such a thing if push came to shove but I wanted to check first if there's anything that can be done just on the controller board itself.

Any other recommendations for detecting stalls is appreciated to since I assume there isn't anything the controller will be able to provide.
