M569.7: Configure motor brake port
- Pn.n Motor CAN board address (if applicable) and driver number
- C"port" Port name of the brake control port. The port must be on the same CAN board as the driver. The CAN address does not need to be specified in the port name, but if it is then it must be the same as the driver address.
M569.7 P40.0 C"out2" ; driver 0 on board 40 uses port out1 on board 40 to control the brake
When the motor driver is enabled, the specified output port will be turned on at the same time to release the brake. When the motor driver is disabled, the output port will be turned off. Idle current mode does not count as disabled.
Note: after M569.7 is executed, the port will be initially off. Therefore, M569.7 should be executed before the motor is first enabled.
