When entering compensationMode the EUI keeps switching between Stationary and Moving Pt-Pt. EFD is reflecting this under "MTHexapod.logevent_controllerState.enabledSubstate".
Does this happens because actuators 2-6 do not report their position —>inPosition event is not generated —> compensationMode keeps compensating —> hexapod does not accept ve further move command because it is constantly “moving”?
- is mitigated by
DM-29423 MTHexapod moves can be delayed or lost if compensation mode is enabled
Hi Holger Drass , on Russell Owen's second point above - does this oscillation between substates happen even we are not tracking?
Since we don't have temperature compensation yet, when mount elevation is not changing, I think the substate should not change all the time. What is triggering the substate change? Supposedly it is looking at the difference between the target position and the current position? If so, is the tolerance configurable?
Hi Bo Xin [X], the mount was providing constant azimuth and elevation values at all times. So no tracking involved.
My guess is that the telescope never gets the inPosition event and goes on compensating and therefore changes between Stationary and MovingPt-PT
There are two aspects to this ticket:
DM-29423, which I am working on. DM-29423). This just shows the compensation updates. It is harmless and I see no reasonable way to avoid it.
