Linear actuators are a common part in many robotics projects. This Application Note looks at how to wire them to a RoboClaw motor controller and tune them for position control.
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.
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.
The Pololu A-Star microcontroller’s serial functionality can be used to control a RoboClaw motor controller. This Application Note covers the details.
