    Hello,

    I have a problem where simtools is crashing. I have AMC MDBOX and currently running 4DOF with servo motors. Motion works fine and after about 10 min (sometimes more sometimes less) it just stops and actuators go to park position only thing helping is pc restart. My PC is brand new, fresh windows 10 installed, tried different USB ports, Tried disabling USB suspend, tried with everything else unplugged from USB. I don't even have to be in sim for it to stop working.

    Can you please help i don't know what else to do at this point.

    Hi Tino,

    Can you get a USB tester device and see what voltage / current the AMC controller draws from the USB port?

    Something like this:


    If the voltage is too much below 5v and it drawing too much current, you may need to buy a USB2.0 powered hub to connect the AMC controller instead of directly to the PC.

    Thanks
    Thanos
