Re: Safety stop on loss of Serial Connection

Still adding the functionality. We've added the commands for setting the timeout and are working on the backend code to processes the timer and stop the motors. I expect to have something ready around next week.

Re: Serial Communication Problems

We've had a couple interim firmware updates but we still have a fairly long list of changes/updates that are being worked on.

Modbus RTU looks interesting. I will keep it in mind, though we are already pretty well set on what communications formats we are using on future products.

Re: Basicmicro Studio not recognizing roboclaw 2x45A

Thank you for letting me know. We will look at this today and release an update if its found to be a problem in the new release. We did make some changes to how MCP device names are parsed so its possible we inadvertently caused a problem with the Roboclaw 2x45A.

Re: Roboclaw occasionally unresponsive to packet serial
