The L6480 absolute position counter seems to count in multiples of 256 micro steps? When executing the move command with a 1000 micro steps or using the GoToDir command with a 1000 micro step value both generate a motion that ended in having a value of 256000 int the absolute position counter. When I reverse the direction the value is -256000 as expected, or should I say not expected! This count in multiples of 256 is a constant count and is not affected by the choice of micro stepping mode. may it be 1/8, 1/16 or 1/32 makes no difference!
Why is this? Is there a different setting or configuration for this? Any ideas on how fix this? I want to read the true number of micro steps and not in multiples of some value.
