    Stepper Motor won't move even after being assigned angles...

    Hi everyone,

    I'm having trouble moving my Stepper Motor.

    NOTE: The motor works with a basic test script. Ie, I press a switch, which starts a timer, and the needle attached to the stepper motor moves according to the timer. It works great.

    However, it won't work with the following script:

    Code:
    Var 0, Link USB_STEPPER, name Chrono, Output 3, PosL 200, PosC 0, PosR 4, Type T
    
    Var 978, name Capt_Chrono, static
    {
     CALL &Clock_Calc
    }
    
    Var 8575, name Clock_Calc, Link SUBRUTINE
    {
     L0 = &Capt_Chrono
     {
      L1 = L0 * 6
      &Chrono = L1
     }
    }
    }
    Basically, the script takes a variable from Nico Kaan's Lekseecon software (chronograph time), and converts it to degrees. I check in IOCPConsole, and the "Chrono" variable is DEFINITELY being sent values, however it just stands still.

    This is definitely a software issue; the motor works with other scripts and will turn perfectly always.

    Cheers,

    Jack

    PS: IOStepper.ini, Sioc.ini, etc, etc, have all been set up correctly; it works with all my other scripts just not this one!

    Love to help, Jack but I can barely spell SIOC.

    Happy New year though.

    Thanks anyway Reid!

    Nico has solved the problem for me. I had forgotten a single space between the "=" and "120".
