Control of multiple chained Roboclaws

I have 8 motors with encoders and home switches, and 4 roboclaw 2x15 boards, and I need to control them all from a single source, preferably a RasPi or similar. How do I need to wire these for control (assuming USB/packet serial and the S1 S2 lines)? I've seen Python libraries here and on GitHub. Ar...

Re: Encoders on GoBilda motors

I investigated further. I have several of these motors and tried a different one with the identical wiring setup as the first one, and the second motor's encoder works fine. So I guess the first motor has a bad encoder?

Re: Encoders on GoBilda motors

I’m powering them with 5V from the Roboclaw.

Encoders on GoBilda motors

I have a 5202 Series Yellow Jacket Planetary Gear Motor (5.2:1 Ratio, 1150 RPM, 3.3 - 5V Encoder), powering a ServoCity linear actuator kit. I am trying to get the motor encoder to be recognized by a RoboClaw 2x15A Motor Controller. Do the A and B signal lines from the encoder need pull-up resistors...
