Using nanoMoco based time lapse equipment Previous version of the OpenMoco based time lapse engines used Slim to control the motors. But then your movie will become darker and darker when the sun sets. There will be a fully graphical controller application in the future, but that is still under development. Connecting the Motor The following diagram indicates a standard bi-polar stepper motor wiring to the nanoMoCo. You get a very reliable combination that can do a full degrees rotation of the rotary table in ElysiaVisuals has developed a connector board that you can use next to the nanoMoCo board. The address of the device on the bus is 2.

The power provided on the cabling is typically designed to power a hand-held controller, or other low-current devices on the bus. You may only have one device attached to the bus during firmware upload.

We also suggest using twisted cabling for the Simple Synchronization bus as well. The big advantage of the nanoMoco board is that it holds all of this in a very small package.
You can use this board to connect all the required cables like the RJ45 based MoCoBus cable, a power plug or your camera. Shopping cart Your shopping cart is empty.
The modified source is included in the firmware source bundle.
This is only limited by the number of USB ports on your computer. The rotary table is now ready for action. I used a Hirose plug for this since this plug holds a strain relief collar which makes the resulting cable much more durable.
Dynamic Perception stepperr even tweaked the optiboot bootloader that is used ztepper the Arduino Uno. The connector board has two RJ45 jacks. That way you can control an array of motors and camera’s from just one central application.
The soon to be released nanoMoco electronics with it’s accompanying software can form a solid basis to create a platform for multi axis motion control. The following user guide can also be found at the site of http: I cannot wait until Dynamic Perception will release motion control products based on the nanoMoco and MoCoBus technology.
The following features of the nanoMoco board are taken from the original announcement:. The three control lines on the Stepoer Synchronization bus are referred to as Common 1, 2, and 3.
If you’re using two or more nanoMoCo devices or any other MoCoBus devicesthen you’ll want to take advantage of the Simple Synchronization bus if you want the devices to act in concert.
We have tested the rotary table during two week long time lapse sequences. This is a 6-wire open source protocol. Please read “Dynamic Perception nanoMoco hardware and software – a first nanompco to learn more about the nanoMoCo board.
The following diagram indicates a standard bi-polar stepper motor wiring to the nanoMoCo. You can then nanokoco any supported software, such as Graphical Slim, or write your own software for control using frameworks such as the OpenMoCo Qt framework.
Dynamic Perception’s mission is to provide low-cost and easy-to-use photographic motion-control systems. Ok, I promised some hardware projects that I would publish on my blog. All the wires are connected to our nanoMoco connector board. While not required, this allows nodes on the MoCoBus to work together autonomously, without constant steppre from a connected master device such as a controller or computer.

You can upload a new bootloader to the board using an ISP programmer in the same fashion as you would any Arduino board. Consult the data sheet for your motor for the correct wiring diagram. A RS is balanced, it does not require a ground signal. The second one is my, still to be completed, time lapse rotary table which you can see on the images below. The current firmware version is very stable and has given me no issues. The boards can be used to both control a stepper motor and a dSLR camera.
