I am using a RC type brushless motor for an air compressor on my laser engraver. I would like to have control of this in software, but PWM output will not work to drive the electronic speed controller that accepts standard hobby servo input pulses.
In addition, I will be using a smoothie on my CNC mill project which has a VFD that accepts a 0-10v analog input. An analog output type would be very helpful in controlling it.
I have been browsing around the documentation and I'm still left looking for the nitty-gritty of the firmware. I'm not a C programmer, but I feel like the behind the scenes stuff is not publicly documented and likely for good reason. What is in the config file is only marginally useful when trying to do something out of the norm.
What is the easiest way to get a deeper look into what functionality is there that may be able to be put to use?
In summary what i'm looking for:
1. New switch.module_name.output_type for hobby servos
2. New switch.module_name.output_type for analog 0-5v or 0-10v
3. More in depth functionality information?
