Our libraries and example code for interfacing with the RoboClaw and MCP motor controllers can be found on GitHub. This Application Note covers how to obtain our code repositories.
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.
