Powerbrick with Rotary Motor and Linear Encoder
I have a Powerbrick LV that I am trying to get a rotator motor(6 poles) with hall sensors driving a lead screw stage (2 mm/ rev) with a linear quad encoder configured (0.1 mm resolution). When I go through the basic setup if I configure it as it should be it will not let me get past the hardware interface section. Basic issue is that there appears to be no lead screw length setting to match the linear encoder to help the phase track in between the hall sensors. It seems that I have to either pretend to have a linear stage with the real encoder or the real rotary stage with a fake rotary encoder. When pretending it is a linear stage I used a cycle length of 0.66666 mm (2mm/3 pole pairs).

Either way once I set that up and run the basic test and set the stage fails auto. On manual it sometimes fails the 6 step voltage but even when it does pass it, it seems to fail the open loop test.

Checking the UVW they seem to go in the proper pattern as per the powerbrick manual with the 3-1 with a the correctly set Negative value set for this "backward" direction. Cycle from 3 to 3 distance matches the 0.6666mm cycle length I trued using. I found that the phase value does not track properly but I think this might be caused by the manual testing "passing" values that were not really correct.

I tested the fixed current Locking Method as in the manual. Running the current would look the stage in the 3 UVW state value and would rotate the stage to that state if I started in a different state but the phase would change it appeared. Also when I was doing that test when I activated the motor the encoder monitor would show the encoder changing when the stage was not moving with also made the phase change.

I know the stage is fine as I pulled it from my working ACS based controller system to try to figure out how to configure this.
