Consult the data sheet for your motor for the correct wiring diagram. You can find more about the connector board at “nanoMoCo connector board”. In my last post called “Introduction to time lapse photography” I explained the basics of time lapse photography in combination with a automatically controlled Dynamics Perception dolly. The use of a time lapse slider gives you the possibility to control the motion of your camera in one linear direction. The following features of the nanoMoco board are taken from the original announcement:. The modified source is included in the firmware source bundle.

The address of the device on the bus is 2. The use of a time lapse slider gives you the possibility to control the motion of your camera in one linear direction. This bootloader allows the upload of new firmware over the RS interface.
The nanoMoCo boards and the ElysiaVisuals nanoMoCo connector boards will be available in our store very soon from now.

Our focus is to enable creativity and experimentation through open and unencumbered hardware, firmware, and software. These commands are slightly different from the original Slim commands. ElysiaVisuals has developed a connector board that you can use next to the nanoMoCo board. All the wires are connected to our nanoMoco connector board.
Here you see the nanoMoco board at the back of a Nema17 stepper motor. Simply connect the adapter’s A line to the bus A line, and B to B. After this 8 seconds have passed, no firmware upload can be initiated. Graffik is an open source controller application that is written especially for the nanomoo hardware.
Founded by the creators of the OpenMoCo open-source motion-control system we are striving to provide flexible and expandable kits for solving any motion-control need. You don’t need to use a separate Arduino, stepper controller and electronics to fire your camera.
That way you can control an array of motors and camera’s from just one central application. Today I received these PCB’s in the post.
You can use this board to connect all the required cables like the RJ45 based MoCoBus cable, a power plug or your camera. The board is so small that it fits at the back of a Nema17 stepper motor as I mentioned in this forum post. The following table shows all pins from the standard Arduino Atmegap interface to the nanoMoCo pins and assignments:. In this case, you must either perform your tuning in the first 8 seconds after booting up, or using a software client like Graphical Slim – adjust the current during a movement, or disable the sleep setting.
The first one is my stepper based time lapse dolly. You can upload a new bootloader to the board using an ISP programmer in the same fashion as you would any Arduino board.
Dynamic Perception announced the nanoMoCo Stepper Driver/Controller
You can find more about the connector board at “nanoMoCo connector board”. I find it helpfull to have the help on the background. In my last post called “Introduction to time lapse photography” I explained the basics of time lapse photography in combination with a automatically controlled Dynamics Perception dolly.
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. Typically, on MoCoBus arrangements, only 12V motors are used.
You can then use any supported software, such as Graphical Slim, or write your own software for control using frameworks such as the OpenMoCo Qt framework. Any stepping motor with at least 4 wires, and an even nanmoco of wires 4, 6, 8 can be wired bi-polar.
Each bus can hold up to MoCoBus compatible devices. With Graffik you can control as many MoCoBus busses as you can.
Dynamic Perception nanoMoco hardware and software – a first impression
The boards can be used to both control a stepper motor and a dSLR camera. Conclusion I have used the nanoMoco boards for months now and I can only say that these boards are very impressive.
One of the great features of the board is that you steppe daisy-chain them via the so called MoCoBus protocol. The current adjustment potentiometer can be adjusted with a small flat-tip or phillips screw driver. You need a connector board that is connected to the nanoMoco board in order to have an easy way of connecting all the cables.
