Firmware 4.1.34: Power Cycle required when enabling Limit/Homing Switches

Post by Basicmicro Support » Wed Apr 08, 2020 12:08 pm

In firmware 4.1.34, when first enabling Limit/Homing Switches on S4 or S5, the settings will not take effect until after a power cycle of the Roboclaw. This means you must set your Limit/Home Switch settings, then click Write Settings(Device Menu), disconnect from the Roboclaw and power cycle the controller before the inputs will function as Limit/Home switches

This behavior will be corrected in the next firmware release. The only settings change that should normally required a power cycle is when changing the Device Address.
