Re: E Stop Status on Basic Micro Motion Studio

If you only need one E-Stop pin I recommend using S3. But otherwise glad to hear you got it.

Re: Motor Position based on Serial Command

As I said, the buffer argument(the last argument in the command is either 0 or 1. 1 Means any running commands are stopped and that command runs immediately. 0 means that command will run when any commands previously executed finish for that motor. Yes, the M1M2 position command looks correct, but I...

Re: Motor Position based on Serial Command

If the buffer argument is set to 1 the new position command will happen immediately. If the buffer argument is 0 the command will be buffered and run in the order it was received.

Your example line of code has it set to 0 so it will be buffered.

Re: E Stop Status on Basic Micro Motion Studio

If you are using Packet Serial mode you need to set S3 to something other than Default. S3 defaults to a latching E-Stop when in packet serial mode. If any pin is set as a latching E-Stop ALL E-Stop pins will be latching. It will not let you have a combination of latching and non-latching E-Stop pin...

Re: enclosure for roboclaw and batteries

Heat from the batteries is probably not an issue. Also with lead acid I wouldn't worry too much about them getting too hot from ambient either. It is more important to keep the controller cool. The hotter it gets from ambient the less power it will let you use. I'd also recommend shading the box som...

Re: readcurrents not working well

1. The included code is not sufficent to run your program. Please include a complete program that shows the problem. 2. You are not checking so see if the ReadCurrents commands completed successfully. You should always check the return value of the function to see if it is valid(true) or failed(fals...

Re: Voltage Clamp Power Resistor Overheating

Then it is likely your clamping circuit is wired up wrong(based on the overheating and the voltage drop no matter what). I recommend taking a picture of everything and listing how you have it wired and emailing that to us at support@basicmicro.com. We will help you get up and running. Note we now re...

Re: Roboclaw solo: serial communications straight out of the box

The unit default is 38400. We suggest switching to 115200 on any reasonably performant microprocessor(like and Arduino, eg the Arduino maximum baudrate). We default to 384090 so slower processors can be used out of the box.

Re: Roboclaw Solo: Setting S3 mode via packet serial

You combine multiple things to make a setting.

For a reverse limit you combine SIGTYPE_LIMIT 0x02 and SIGFLAG_BACKWARD 0x20 which produces 0x22(34).

Every mode must have a SIGTYPE set. Then you set specific SIGFLAGs for that mode.

Re: Logic battery says .7v, error light on, still runs fine

Anything under 3v is ignored as it usually indicates a floating Logic Battery input(eg nothing attach). If you aren't otherwise having problems you can ignore it. If you are you can ground the Logic battery input(eg connect one pin to the other on the Logic battery plug. That should hold the logic b...
