When reading the latest Opto Newsletter I was struck by a comment that Ben Orchard made in the Tech Tip. The tip revolved around how sometimes issues are non-existent when running through things with Autostep turned on but are problems when Autostep is off. Ben’s quote was “sometimes the controller is too fast for itself”.
I have seen this issue a number of times in a variety of scenarios. Usually I try to get around it by simplifying programming or finding an alternative means. I’m wondering though, is this a consistent issue with the controllers? I’ve seen situations where the controller seemingly skips lines of script code (especially when it’s a fairly lengthy chunk of script) if I don’t throw in delays to slow it down. However, it seems to happen somewhat randomly which makes it incredibly hard to replicate (and make tech support believe me :p). Has anyone else experienced this or am I way off in left field on this one?
