According to the manual, the flashing green status LED indicates that “safe start conditions are not met.” I’ve gone through the manual and I think I’m doing everything right.
Here’s my setup:
- I have the controller connected to an Ardunio Uno. I am trying to control it via an analog output on the UNO - sending from 0 to 5 volts to control motor speed.
- My motor is a 24 volt DC motor.
- I have the mode select jumper shorting the left two pins, so I should be in analog mode.
- There is no jumper on the channel mix jumper.
- There is no jumper on the learning mode jumper.
On the motor outputs:
- M1A is going to motor power, M1B is going to motor ground
- Vin is 24 volts
- GND is ground
- M2 A and B are floating
- M3 out and ground are floating
On the RC/Analog inputs:
- Channel 1 rightmost pin is connected to an analog output on my UNO. The Uno will send 0-5 volts based on a potentiometer, I have verified this is working with a multimeter.
- Channel 2 and 3 rightmost pin are also connected to the same output as channel 1 (I did this to see if it would help meet the "safe start conditions.)
- Channel 4 and 5 rightmost pins are going to +5 VCC.
- All other pins in that section are floating.
So any thoughts? I would prefer not to have to use the serial configuration program if possible, I don’t have a cable to connect to my computer.
