Re: Need help troubleshooting a burned MCP236.

Just be careful not to short any pins. :) Yes you should be fine running the motor channel without any load. Try not to cause any more damage. If you think something is beyond you please just send the unit in and we will repair it. In most cases we don't charge anything and in cases where we do it i...

Re: Trouble using BEC to power RPi 4B

Unless you are seeing a specific low power warning this problem is not directly due to how you are powering the Pi4. Noise may be an issue. Pi4 is new and requires much higher power levels than Pi3. We have not run any tests on the PI4 while powered from the Roboclaw. If you have access to a scope, ...

Re: Need help troubleshooting a burned MCP236.

No. The gate resistors are just gate resistors(1/10th watt), though they are rated for high pulse energy. But any resistor will act like a fuse if enough power flows through them.

Re: Feature Request: Studio app for Linux

Ha. That could be. :)

Reliably? The trick is setting up the USB port access. But I've had several users do it. Was it easy? That will depend on your perspective and experience.

Re: Feature Request: Studio app for Linux

1. We do plan on it as soon as we have the manpower or man hours available. Maybe not a full Motion Studio app but something that would allow the majority of settings to be adjusted/saved. 2. It may seem a large number of people using Roboclaw are using Linux but in my own experience, doing tech sup...

Re: Need help troubleshooting a burned MCP236.

Your BMS is preventing motor regen from going back into the battery which is causing a massive voltage spike in the MCP. Regen causes the voltage on the batteryt rise and the BMS is probably set to disconnect if the voltage rises farther than some point. If the batteries cant take the regen energy t...

Re: R and L setting by serial

Thanks for the correction. I beleive float(data[0]) would also fix the problem in python2. Once one of the operators is a float Python2 till automatically promote the other to a float as well.

Re: Ardupilot Auto mode does not work on Rover 4.0, works on Rover 3.5.2

1. I recommend you give me all the details so I can help you. Telling me you had a second unit that was working as you expected would have been useful information and would have saved you a day waiting for me to reply to you. Anything else you can think of that may be pertinent? 2. Use motion studio...

Re: Ardupilot Auto mode does not work on Rover 4.0, works on Rover 3.5.2

You need to ask this question in the ArduPilot forums. We have no control over what they may have changed in their new release. If, without changing any settings the older Rover software works its pretty obvious the problem is something they changed since then.
