Re: Reading current with Roboclaw

Are you reading the battery amps? Battery amps are not motor amps(which is what roboclaw reports). Battery amps are only the same as motor amps(assuming one motor is being used) when the motor is at 100% duty. Anything less and the amps will be some fraction of the motor amps based on the duty %. Eg...

Re: S4/S5 enable

I was able to reproduce the S3 E-Stop problem. After power up but without doing anything else the S3 mode does not get set. It appears it was an order of operations error. If I re-read the settings S3 worked correctly. I reordered the pin setup code so it wouldnt be a problem anymore. I've tested it...

Re: new manual

Before I replied to your post I downloaded the Arduino library from our website and looked at the cpp file. It has both the GetEncoders and GetISpeed command in them(Lines 806 and 811 respectively). Are you downloading directly from our site? If so please tell me the link you used so I can check it....

Re: PacketSerial problem with FW.ver.4.1.10

I cant find any details on starDuino. If it is a Leonardo clone it should run 38400 correclty. However there is a special firmware for 32u4 that runs at 8mhz instead of 16mhz(this allows those special boards to run at 3.3v instead of 5v). Running at the slower rate could cause problems at higher bau...

Re: Has Packet Serial mode to be activated through USB port?

Did you try 57600 as well? Also if you are using Leonardo(I assume that was what you mean since I've never heard of a "Leoparde" arduino), the lenadro arduino boards have a seperate hardware uart you can use while still use the leonardos USB connection. I recommend using hardware uarts because other...

Re: SOLVED - Packet Serial Issues with Arduino

38400 usually does work ok. I would also test at 57600. Both are OK baudrates on arduino(eg fairly minimal bitrate error). Lower baudrates usually have lower errors of course but not always. Also on the arduino if you are using software serial with interrupts other commands that use interrupts can i...

Re: new manual

The curernt manual covers most changes from 4.1.12. The GetEncoders and GetISpeeds commands were added at the last minute so did not make it into this manual. The arduino library does include them. The syntax is pretty much what you would expect. address, cmd then read back the 4 byte encoder1 and 4...

Re: Can't connumicate with RoboClaw 2x45

is the Roboclaw being propelry detected by your Linux box? Whats its ttyACM address? Did you change the pythong exampel to use the correct comport address? The default example is setup for windows by default. You can comment the windows Open function out and uncomment the Linux one and then change t...

Re: Has Packet Serial mode to be activated through USB port?

In packet serial mode the motors wont stop just because you disconnect the signal lines(eg S1 and S2). Unlike RC mode there is no qaruntee when signals will be sent in packetserial mode. Only RC mode supports a timeout for turning the motors off if no new pulses are received(thats its default settin...
