Control two 2x15A roboclaws from one USB

Post by mastns » Wed Jul 24, 2019 7:31 am

Hello,

I want to control four motors so I have purchased two 2x15A roboclaws from robotshop.
I have only one USB port available, is it possible to connect them in master-slave configuration so that only one of them (the master) is connected to my PC and the other (the slave) is connected to the first one.
Is there any other option ?

Thank you in advance for your help,
Athanasios Mastrogeorgiou

Enable Relay mode on the Roboclaw that will be connected to the USB port . Also change its Packet Serial Address to 129. Connect S1 from one Roboclaw to S2 on the other and vis-versa. Connect a common ground between the Roboclaws if they arent powered from the same source.
