Re: RoboClaw 2x5A v4

The length of time at 10a is purely determined by temperature. As the temperature rises above 25c on the board the maximum peak current is reduced, until at 85c the peak current is 5amps. If you need to run something at higher than 5amps for more than a few seconds I would recommend you use a more p...

When you open IonMotion, the first screen shown is the Firmware update screen. If you connect your roboclaw to the PC, the software will automatically detect it and update the status on the firmware update screen. If the unit has the latest bootloader you can just click the update firmware button an...

Re: Getting roboclaw out of bootstrap mode

Once the board is in bootloader mode you use IonMotion software to update the firmware. Currently there is no other option for updating the firmware. When updating the firmware with IonMotion you do not click the Connect menu item. The first screen that shows in IonMotion(if you are using the latest...

Re: Question about command 46 (buffered drive)

Yes, thats one of the uses it was made for. The distance acts like a physical timeout.

Re: Question about command 46 (buffered drive)

All the distance commands are relative from the current encoder reading. Also if you send a distance command and done send another command before it finishes and the speed at the finish of that command is not zero then the roboclaw will add another distance command that will decelerate the motor to ...

Re: Command to read both encoders at once?

There is not currently a command to read both encoders at once. Ill see if I can add one in the next firmware release. With the current system it takes 2 * (1ms + (10*6/38400) = 5.125ms to read both encoders. With a command that could read both at once it would take 1ms + (10 * 10bytes *1/38400) = 3...

You can send your board in for a firmware update iof you want to use IonMotion with it. The program locks up when you try to connect to the unit because it has older firmw...
