Hi to all,
I have recently purchased 2xRoboclaw 2x30A V5E and tried to connect them to a Windows 10 laptop (USB3). I followed the following steps...
Plug in a common power supply (12V, 1A) in RoboClaws battery pins and afterwards connect the Roboclaw to the laptop via usb -> windows 10 and Ion Studio did not recognized roboclaw existance.
Plug in a battery pack 2200mAh 11.1V, 25C in RoboClaw's battery pins and afterwards connect the Roboclaw to the laptop via usb -> windows 10 and Ion Studio did not recognized roboclaw existance.
The really interesting thing is that the LEDs are blinking correctly and I did some basic button configuration with the mode, set and lipo buttons but the connection to the laptop seems to be problematic.. Also, roboclaw's usb port seems not to be damaged as if I take out the main power supply and connect the board to the laptop the on board LEDs blink (not strongly but...blink).
So my question is if I can try something different in order to get the roboclaw working together with a PC...
P.S 1: Today I will try connect the roboclaw with serial connection to an arduino board hoping to get in touch with it
P.S 2: I did tried all the above procedures to all 2 roboclaws that I did buy...but their "behaviour was the same.
Thanks in advance.
