Display Aerotech Position in App Designer
2 views (last 30 days)
I'm attempting to display the position feedack of axes from Aerotech Motion Composer. The position parameter is in a matlab function I call AxisPositions where the relevant line of code is:
posXFeedback = A3200StatusGetItem(handle, 0, A3200StatusItem.PositionFeedback, 0);
I want to grab this value continuously in real time and display in an Edit Field (or any appropriate component) in an App Designer GUI.
In App Designer I have an Edit Field where I have attempted to call the posXFeedback variable to be displayed as the value:
function PresentXposEditFieldValueChanged(app, event)
app.PresentXposEditField.Value = AxisPositions;
Can anyone suggest how to approach this?
Thanks in advance.

You can use a timer-class to execute a function after a particular time interval. This will help you to query and display the position feedback from Aerotech Motion Composer at specific intervals of time. For reference, you can check this app designer example that uses a timer-based data update.
Note that in your case, you can choose an appropriate period (as low as 0.01 sec) to make the updates seem real time.
Hope this helps
