Finding the correct value for HALLOFFSET in the PC800 servo drive

Follow this procedure:

Set Hallofffset to a value.
NVSAVE, power cycle.
Set Commenbl = 0.
Enable drive.
Record Encpos.
Increase Commoff by 20 deg.
Encpos should increase by an equal amount.
If it is a different amount, change Halloffset and restart the procedure.
Decrease Commoff by 20 deg.
Encpos should decrease by an equal amount.
If it is a different amount, change Halloffset and restart the procedure.

Chokes are inductive components in the electrotechnics and are used for interference suppression, commutation, energy storage and current limitation.

One of the basic functions in the drive of a brushless servomotor is the commutation. The commutation is the current transition of one winding of the motor to the next winding. Only in case of a correct commutation time respectively a correct commutation angle there is correct synchronism of the motor with perfect efficiency and minimum thermal load.
There are different possibilities to evaluate and adjust the commutation angle (parameter MPHASE).
