I've got the positive lead from the motor going into M2 Out B, and the negative lead to M2 Out A. I'm using an eight AA pack with new batteries, but the motor barely runs, and within about 15 seconds stops entirely.
The solder connections look ok, no shorts or anything, and I don't think I missed anything in the manual (although if I did I wouldn't know it . Here's the code I'm running.
int abCounts = svp_get_counts_ab();
int cdCounts = svp_get_counts_cd();
int abErrs = svp_check_error_ab();
int cdErrs = svp_check_error_cd();
printf("AB = %d CD = %d", abCounts, cdCounts);
printf("abErrs = %d cdErrs = %d", abErrs, cdErrs);
Appreciate any pointers, head slaps, etc.
