Hello,

I am trying to control a brushless DC motor using UART in LabVIEW. The solo mini is connected to a myRIO. How do I input codes into the UART block in labVIEW? What format do they have to be? I have tried to input values in the same hexadecimal format in as shown in the UART to usb manual( https://www.solomotorcontrollers.com/wp-content/uploads/materials/SOLO_MINI_Communication_Manual_UART_USB.pdf). I understand the command format I am just having issues being able to sent those commands to the motor.

Hello @mirzarashid,

Have you tried to use our C++ dll within your Labview program to communicate with the SOLO unit?

https://github.com/Solo-FL/SOLO-Motor-Controllers-DLL

Unfortunately, we don't have a ready tutorial on how to do this in Labview, however adding a dll in LabVIEW is a well-known method, and I belive you can find good materials on that online.

let us know if you need any other help.

Hello @milad

Thank you for thanking the time to respond. I looked through the github files and one of the examples provided. I am still confused on how to call the functions defined in SoloMotorControllers.ccp. Can you provide an example on how to do a specific command like 0x07 : Motor’s Parameters Identification or 0x15 : Motor Type?

@mirzarashid 

Our DLL is built from our C++ library, on that library you can see many examples done for various functions:

https://github.com/Solo-FL/SOLO-motor-controllers-CPP-library

For instance, you can see an example with UART/USB line below:

https://github.com/Solo-FL/SOLO-motor-controllers-CPP-library/blob/main/examples/serial/PMSM_SpeedControl_Encoder.cpp

is this what you were looking for?
