Software / RTC on axon
« Last post by the_edge123 on July 27, 2014, 04:11:33 AM »
I'm interested in getting the axon2.
I would like to know if the RTC is enabled to timestamp sensor data.

I'm running two 24V 35amp motors with a Sabertooth Dual 25A
maceliz, something seems wrong with the above line(using 25A drive with 35A motor?)
do you have a model or part number for the motors your using?

Electronics / Problems running motors with sabertooth
« Last post by maceliz on July 26, 2014, 09:19:58 PM »
I'm running two 24V 35amp motors with a Sabertooth Dual 25A 6V-24V Regenerative Motor Driver connected to a remote controller and it is working fine but after some minutes the motors stop, my assumption is the wiring is getting to hot as I can feel it and are not allowing the current to flow but I'm not sure.

If I wait some seconds the motors work fine again.

I'm using 12 gauges wires and planning to change it for 8 gauge wires?

Do you think I'm doing the right assumption or might be something different?

Thanks

bdeuell that is a great idea. I was thinking of using a sabertooth but that seams easier and cheaper. It is also smaller.

you could always heat your gear up before you press it on to help reduce the press fit force required, might make enough of a diferance but i wouldnt count on it. This can help when disassembling as well if you dont care about saving your existing motor.

If you do use epoxy a rough surface will be tour friend, you could scuff the surfaces with some sand paper before gluing.

I've had good luck with plastic gears.

Brass is not as flexible and would need to be fixed in place with epoxy.

Did you do a search on how to properly charge NiMh batteries?
There is lots of info on the proper sequencing on controlled current and Voltage.

And yes, building your own charger can be done. It just needs to be done properly else you either just kill the battery and/or start a fire.

I really hope I'm not insulting anyone with my bad Paint-skills, but I made a little picture of my idea.. http://imgur.com/76wRgP6

If the microphones angle (horisontal) could be maintained regardless of how I moove the arm and could be controlled by a single joystick, that would be great! In my mind it would just be a matter of programming, or am I wrong?

They make relays directly controlled by the servo signal (no mechanical connection...other than the relay) that might be more reliable.

I think my idea with the robot arm is what I need.
Now my concern is how to control it. It would be great to have the ability to take the robot with me. I work in different studios around, so I need to take it with me to the studio, and set it up pretty quickly, and control it via wifi maybe. some kind og wireless control would be the optimal.

So my vision for the robot is, I go to the studio with the robot in my bag or car, then I go to the recording room with a guitarist and hes guitar amp. I place the robot in front of the guitar amp and place a microphone on the robot-stand and gives the robot some power, then I go to the monitor-room/control-room and set up my control-surface (maybe my mac pro), connects to the robot, and then I'm good to go and ready for the sound check. Here I let the guitarist play through hes guitar amp and I listen to the microphone and move the microphone around the speaker on the guitar amp. I only need to move the mic some inches, so it wont run over any cables or so. When I've found the perfect spot for the microphone, I'll just let the microphone be where it is and press "record" :)

I hope that resolves any misunderstandings.
