Motor only spins one direction

5 years 5 months ago #29529965 by glomagno@hotmail.com
Ok so i have tested the SDC2160S using the roborun utility. Motor runs both directions. I finally got around to connecting it to the controller card i have and the motor only spins one direction. Not sure if i even have the connections right. Please see attached wire diagram for my card. Would anyone be able to tell me the necessary wiring connections on the db15 connector to the 3 header pins on my card?

It's a bit hard to see the diagram up close. What is the motor command being issued? Pulse, serial, or analog?

it is a pulse signal. so digital is set to priority one and it is by default i believe

here it is bigger

The capture type by default if using pulse input 1 is pulse width. the center value also at default is 1500uS, which is the neutral command so no motor movement. If the pulse value is greater than 1500uS, then it tells the motor to move forward. If less than 1500uS, then it tells the motor to move backwards.

Is your pulse signal a pulse width, freq, or duty cycle?

So if the motor only spins 1 direction, then you'll need to take a look at what the signal is being issued. If you have it connected to the Roborun+ via serial, you can see the actual signal in the "Run" tab in the upper right hand corner.

If the pulse out is not something you can adjust the PWM out (fixed value), then likely you will be stuck with one direction flow.

This also could be a noise issue, try isolating the wiring from the driver to the Z from any other cables or electronics (especially the power cable to your cutting head).
