      • getFirmwareVersion

        public int getFirmwareVersion()
        Get the firmware version of the SPARK MAX.
        uint32_t Firmware version integer. Value is represented as 4 bytes, Major.Minor.Build H.Build L
      • setControlFramePeriodMs

        public void setControlFramePeriodMs​(int periodMs)
        Set the control frame send period for the native CAN Send thread.
        periodMs - The send period in milliseconds between 1ms and 100ms or set to 0 to disable periodic sends. Note this is not updated until the next call to Set() or SetReference().
      • getFirmwareString

        public java.lang.String getFirmwareString()
        Get the firmware version of the SPARK MAX as a string.
        std::string Human readable firmware version string
      • getSerialNumber

        public byte[] getSerialNumber()
        Get the unique serial number of the SPARK MAX. Not currently available.
        byte[] Vector of bytes representig the unique serial number
      • getDeviceId

        public int getDeviceId()
        Get the configured Device ID of the SPARK MAX.
        int device ID
      • getInitialMotorType

        public CANSparkMaxLowLevel.MotorType getInitialMotorType()
        Deprecated, for removal: This API element is subject to removal in a future version.
        Use getMotorType() instead
        Get the motor type setting for the SPARK MAX
        MotorType Motor type setting
      • getMotorType

        public CANSparkMaxLowLevel.MotorType getMotorType()
        Get the motor type setting for the SPARK MAX
        MotorType Motor type setting
      • setPeriodicFramePeriod

        public REVLibError setPeriodicFramePeriod​(CANSparkMaxLowLevel.PeriodicFrame frame,
                                                  int periodMs)
        Set the rate of transmission for periodic frames from the SPARK MAX

        Each motor controller sends back status frames with different data at set rates. Use this function to change the default rates.

        Defaults: Status0 - 10ms Status1 - 20ms Status2 - 20ms Status3 - 50ms Status4 - 20ms Status5 - 200ms Status6 - 200ms

        This value is not stored in the FLASH after calling burnFlash() and is reset on powerup.

        Refer to the SPARK MAX reference manual on details for how and when to configure this parameter.

        frame - Which type of periodic frame to change the period of
        periodMs - The rate the controller sends the frame to the controller.
        REVLibError.kOk if successful
      • enableExternalUSBControl

        public static void enableExternalUSBControl​(boolean enable)
        Allow external controllers to recieve control commands over USB. For example, a configuration where the heartbeat (and enable/disable) is sent by the main controller, but control frames are sent by other CAN devices over USB.

        This is global for all controllers on the same bus.

        This does not disable sending control frames from this device. To prevent conflicts, do not enable this feature and also send Set() for SetReference() from the controllers you wish to control.

        enable - Enable or disable external control

      • restoreFactoryDefaults

        public REVLibError restoreFactoryDefaults()

      • restoreFactoryDefaults

        public REVLibError restoreFactoryDefaults​(boolean persist)
        Restore motor controller parameters to factory default
        persist - If true, burn the flash with the factory default parameters
        REVLibError.kOk if successful
