Warning

This is the dev documentation for an unreleased version of MPF!

This is the documentation for MPF 0.56, which is the “dev” (next) release of MPF that is a work-in-progress. Unless you’re specifically looking for this version, you probably want to use the version of documentation called “latest” which is for the latest released version of MPF. That documentation is at docs.missionpinball.org/en/latest.

step_stick_stepper_settings:

Config file section

Valid in machine config files NO
Valid in mode config files NO

The step_stick_stepper_settings: section of your config is where you configure the Stepstick hardware platform.

Optional settings

The following sections are optional in the step_stick_stepper_settings: section of your config. (If you don’t include them, the default will be used).

high_time:

Single value, type: time string (secs) (Instructions for entering time strings) . Default: 20ms

How long should the digital output be held to high during a step pulse? This time depends on the latency/jitter of your output and the speed your stepper can be moved. Usually the jitter of your output is the limiting factor.

low_time:

Single value, type: time string (secs) (Instructions for entering time strings) . Default: 20ms

How long should the digital output be held to low after a step pulse? This time depends on the latency/jitter of your output and the speed your stepper can be moved. Usually the jitter of your output is the limiting factor.
