Often a robotics project will need multiple voltages for different parts. A Battery Eliminator Circuit is one way to have multiple voltages present in your build without the need for a second battery.
In this Application Note the RC mode of RoboClaw is configured with the onboard buttons avoiding the need to use Motion Studio.
Encoders allow the RoboClaw to provide accurate and consistent speed and position control of motors. In this Application Note we’ll be wiring a common motor and encoder combination to the RoboClaw.
There are many control schemes available with the RoboClaw. One of the simplest control schemes is analog control. Analog control allows for an analog voltage to control motor speed and direction.
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.
