I have a Pololu JKR and a 499:1 Metal Gearmotor 25Dx58L mm LP 6V with 48 CPR Encoder.
I have read threads by Brandon M tech support from Pololu. This thread in particular.
Following his example for calibrating the feedback. However i’m unable to calculate the maximum due to the fact that my counts a period is 0.0216.
with my motor being 11RPM, the revolutions per milisecond is 0.00018. with 10ms being PID period
Ill get 0.0018 counts per revolution.
multiplying that by the counts per revolution being 12 due to the CPR encoder, ill get 0.0216 in each PID period.
To my understand the neutral being 2048. The maximum should be 2048+ 0.0216 . However the JKR utility doesn’t allow that low of a value to put into the software.
Am i getting this right? or is my calculation totally off?
