Dear Users,

I am using PHANToM Haptic device for molecular simulation with VMD, NAMD, VRPN Server. I am doing IMD (Interactive Molecular Dynamics) for Alanin.

My problem is what force (in unit say 30 Newton or something like that) would be applied by PHANToM on the molecule. I am getting some energy status output but on NAMD command prompt but how I can see the difference in energy status between “with PHANToM force feedback” and “without PHANToM force feedback” molecular simulation?

Thank You,
