Command to read both speeds at once

I am using command 18 and 19 to read the QPPS speeds of the Roboclaw 2x30A

I was wondering if there is a command to read both speeds in one shot?

I tried command 79, but 1) it is not working, and 2) command 79 is for instantaneous speeds.

I have Pin 5 set as E-STOP( Non latching ) The comparison between the crc value and the returned by roboclaw are different. Roboclaw address is 0x80 and command sent 75 crc calculat...

Safely connect/disconnect Roboclaw

I have the Roboclaw (2x30A but I think it does not matter for this topic) connected to the PC via USB. In the manual it says that the Roboclaw must be already power up before connecting the USB port with ION MOTION studio. 1) The same applies for any application? e.g. If I write my own application d...

Re: E Stop Status on Basic Micro Motion Studio

Ok, so just let me clarify something. 1. If I set S3, S4 and S5 to E stop non latching, does sending any one of them to ground will stop the motors? 2. In Motion Studio, the status ESP has to change colors when the NO switch is pressed and/released (red-green), right? Just to know what to expect. In...

E Stop Status on Basic Micro Motion Studio

I have my Roboclaw 2x30A connected, and I setup a E-Stop, non latching, as explained in pp 45 of the manual: S3 is set as default S4 is disabled S5 is set as E Stop. I am using a 1k Ohm resistor, 1/2 Watt to +5V. And the other end goes to a Normaly Open NO switch, as explained in the manual. 1. Does...
