In this Application Note the RC mode of RoboClaw is configured with the onboard buttons avoiding the need to use Motion Studio.
A RoboClaw’s configuration can be saved and loaded from a file. This Application Note looks at how to do this.
When selecting a motor controller there are three main specifications that must be known about the motor you are planning on using. These are voltage, running current and stall current. This articles covers all three and how to pair a motor controller based on these key specifications.
There are several hardware and software precautions that must be taken to prevent damage to a RoboClaw or MCP motor controller. This application note covers the details of each of them.
In systems with a PID controller the proportional, integral and derivative values must be set properly for the controller to operate well. Motion Studio features software to automatically tune these values for a motor and encoder combination. In this Application Note we’ll look at how to use it and fine tune the results.
