Hello there, welcome to my amazing shop with nothing to sell. Take a look around if ya like! The initial business model of JHR will be sales of products and inventions to help people out and make their lives more enjoyable. As JHR grows, the business model will transition to a technology and service company based around the universal model I am developing. For now, the best support for my ideas is buying them, as I will know there is interest. Thanks for visiting!
Motion Control Slider
The motion control slider is now available to rent or buy! Yay! I am located in Southern California. Contact me for pricing and availability
Features: Manaul, Automatic, and Recorded mode. Position saving, xbox controller support, save/loading, on-the-go setting adjustments.
To start, you set the left and right endpoint, gear size, and steps per revolution
Manual: There are two modes. Position adjust moves the stepper when the trigger is pressed and has 1023 points of resolution. Speed mode increases or decreases the speed and continues motor movement even when the trigger is let go. Estop functionality works during all modes.
Auto: In the auto page there are many settings. You can set position 1, position 2, pos 1 acceleration, pos 2 deceleration, and the desired speed. When the slider is at a position point, it will use the accelerations and speed to move to the oposing position. Estop functionality works. The tablet even displays an estimated move time and is always within 0.5 seconds of accuracy.
Recording: THE BEST FEATURE of this motion control slider is the ability to press record on the manual page, do any move you like, and save it. Then, you can save the recording for later use in the presets page. This saved file will persist even when the tablet is turned off. The recording can then be played back in the auto page. Any move you desire can be recorded and saved.
This version of the slider is old but shows the development process.
