Smoker Max Speed Issue
« on: December 06, 2017, 08:52:38 PM »
     I'm having an issue with the Max Speed setting on the Smoker control. I tried lowering the max speed and now the smoker reaches full speed before full throttle and then cuts off, instead of limiting the full throttle speed.
     For example I set the max speed to 80% and when I move the throttle stick up to 80% the smoker is running at max speed, and when I push the stick up a little further the smoker cuts off. No smoker at all for the last 20% of the throttle travel.
     Am I missing something in the programming? Is anyone else having this issue? Any thoughts on the subject would be helpful.

This sounds like a bug to me, probably introduced during one of the recent updates. I will take a look at it but it might not be right away, I've been slammed with work and other stuff.

In the meantime can you post the OPZ file you're using so I can replicate your settings exactly?

I can confirm it's a bug. The smoker should work fine for now if you leave max speed at 100%.

Like I say, it might be this weekend or even next week before I can fix this. Just wanted you to know you weren't going crazy and your board isn't defective. Just needs a software fix.

Good to here, I was a little worried about it being the board.  Thanks for the help.

This issue should be fixed with v0.92.15 of TCB firmware, which I have just posted.

You do not need to update OP Config for this one, just flash new firmware to TCB.
