Phoenix Pro Documentation#
Welcome to the Phoenix Pro documentation. Individuals looking for the Phoenix 5 documentation may locate them here.
The Phoenix Pro software framework allows you to control and configure your CTR Electronics Phoenix Pro Devices. Phoenix Pro represents a complete rewrite of the software framework over the existing Phoenix 5 framework. With Phoenix Pro, users have access to many new features that expand the control the user has over their device.
A changelog containing API, Tuner and Firmware changes is available here and a migration guide is available here.
Why Phoenix Pro?#
Phoenix Pro currently offers the following features and will further expand:
Using time synchronization (when using CANivore), users can accurately determine when a signal was measured and react synchronously.
Uses the popular Units library for C++ and standardizes on SI units.
Get API calls return a StatusSignalValue object that contain methods to refresh, wait for new data, and get the timestamp of the signal.
Control API is performed with request-specific control objects to reduce the parameter count while maintaining clarity on what the request does.
Improved device control
New control modes such as FOC (velocity-based control) to take advantage of ~15% increased peak power.
Kalman based algorithms for velocity smoothing
