Re: Python examples misunderstanding

Have you confirmed the Roboclaw is controlling the speed correctly using IonMotion? If it isnt, then this isnt going to work. The first thing is to make sure speed control is working fully.

Re: Group Commands

We have thought about it but like you showed the time delay between commands is pretty minimum.

I will think on how to do it and if it can be done easily we'll add it, but we are getting pretty close to maximum usage out of the Roboclaw processor now(eg: no code space left).

Re: Using RC Mode with feedback for position control

When using position control with RC mode, you first need to setup the controller using IonMotion and tune the PID settings and confirm the unit is working correctly. Part of this will be to setup the minimum and maximum positions allowed. Then when RC mode is set and encoder support is enabled for R...

Re: Roboclaw with LabVIEW

That(both the pictures and the file) is probably because the forum is locked down pretty tight. What is the file extension. I'll see if I can get it whitelisted.

Re: Python examples misunderstanding

There are two things going on here. 1. Reading the Speed value returns the average speed of the controller(over the previous second). If you want the instantaneous speed read the ISpeed value. This value is the speed since the last reading of the encoder(eg 1/300th of a second). 2. When you use a di...

Re: Question on M1 Driver Fault error

If the M1 Driver fault went away the problem was a power glitch(the driver chip wasnt getting enouhg power so its status flag went low. If the problem is perminent(eg the motor will not run again after a power cycle) then the driver has been damaged and will have to be repaired. When you stall the m...

Re: Roboclaw with LabVIEW

What have you got so far(eg send a screen shot)? The labView instrument driver has VIs for all functions in the Roboclaw. If you have experience with LabView it shouldnt be too hard to get it going after reading through the commands in the Roboclaw manual. Its going to be a little while before we ha...

Re: USB device doesn't appear on Mac

Yes. I've said it before so I didnt remember if I had said it in this thread. USB will NOT power the Roboclaw. You must provide power externally when conencting to the USB port.

Re: Safety stop on loss of Serial Connection

I think you meant the Velocity commands with Distance, not Position. Yes, with the Distance commands you could do as you suggest. Then if no new command was given the motor would just stop at the end of the distance.
