Re: Undo a Motor "reverse"

So I found a solution. It is basically the third option from my previous list. I'll post it in case it helps someone in the future. SIGNALMAX(0)=1500 SIGNALMAX(1)=1500 main if MOTORPWM >= 0 then if MOTORFLAGS(0) & 0x0002 then ;moving forward, but reversed, so command is 'backward' SIGNALMAXACTIO...

Re: Undo a Motor "reverse"

Using a MCP260A, using pin3 (+5V) through two NO switches (left/right) and back to Pins 6/13 (DIN1 & 2). DIN 1 and 2 are set to Analog. Using the script, I've set the max signal limit appropriately to trigger as needed on switch contact. Current script is simply: SIGNALMAX(0)=1500 SIGNALMAX(1)=1...

I've got two limit switches, one at each end of the range of motion. It seems pretty straightforward to set one of the switches to 'reverse' the mot...

Reversing directions at limits (Roboclaw vs MCP)

I'm setting up a drum/tether winding system and wondering if I can do it with the roboclaw limit switches or if I need to get a MCP and do some programming. In short, I have a motor that moves a tether guide left/right in front of a drum to lay down the rope evenly. I have two limit switches, one on...
