I’m using this driver: Pololu Dual G2 High-Power Motor Driver 18v18 Shield for Arduino
With these motors: Pololu - 150:1 Metal Gearmotor 37Dx73L mm 12V with 64 CPR Encoder (Helical Pinion)
Using a Mega as the processor (powered by the driver) and a 11.1 V Lipo battery.
I tried using the default example code provided by the driver library however the motor never powers on. Will it only power on if the encoder is hooked up and receiving/sending info as well? I ask because I left the encoder wires out/unplugged when using the example code just to make sure things were wired properly, could this have been the issue?
I’ve never used an encoder DC motor before so if anyone could point me in the right direction as well that would be very helpful.
