In some cases the voltage read by a motor controller will need to be calibrated to match the actual power supply voltage. This Application Note covers the process of doing so.
The values used for acceleration and deceleration in Motion Studio and the available software libraries can be understood in several terms. The App Note looks at how to make sense of the various ways they can be interpreted.
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 a motor controller improper grounding can cause damage to the motor controller and also to devices attached to it.
The RoboClaw and MCP motor controllers have a new safety feature based around errors in the PID system. This application note takes a look at what it is and how to use it.
