Setting up my first project to use the Roboclaw 2 x 7A controller.
And seeking some guidance.
Using a 12V linear actuator that has feedback via a 10K pot.
Have successfully interfaced to it using the Ion Studio and using the PWM settings screen “control Motor 1” can make the actuator extend and retract and it shows the M1 encoding value increase/decrease. So all good!
Trying to set the maximum and minimum extension on the actuator and then commit this to encoders eprom. When I try move the motor on 1 using the slider as per the picture attachec. It starts moving the actuator into position, once close to the value set in “position”, it then moves the actuator violently +/- .
Any ideas as to what I’m doing wrong?
My ultimate setup for the unit is to communicate to the unit in simple serial mode knowing the controller is aware of max and min position. I simply communicate with the controller then to either extend or retract the actuator.
Any help appreciated.
