This Application Note looks at the features and benefits of the case and fan combination for select RoboClaw motor controllers.
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.
When using serial commuincation with an Arduino there are two implementations available. This Application Note looks at using hardware serial to communicate with a RoboClaw.
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.
