Help needed in building a wired bot....urgent
« on: January 28, 2010, 05:23:03 AM »
hi,
 
   i wanted to build a wired bot.....4 wheel drive....and i used two switches for controlling.....the forward /backward switch is working fine ....but when i connected the wires to the second switch (left/right motion) the battery is getting shorted ....

                      i fixed 4 motors to a rectangular chasis...two on each longer side of the box.... these two motors were connected
 in parallel .... i used DPDT switches....
                       
                     Give me some idea on how i can go about connecting the switches and the battery.....thank you.....

Have you tried doing each side independently? This would probably solve the shorting issue.
Like, have the right side motors in parallel, forward and reverse on one switch and the left on the other?
This could be achieved with just two dpdt switches.

ya ... tats exactly wat i did ... i connected two motors in series on each side ... so i had two wires coming out for two motors...so i totally have four wires ... and fwd/bkwd motions were gr8 with one dpdt switch ... but when i tried left/right in another switch the shorting prob came up ...

I am beginner, but why donīt you use 2 motors, instead of 4 motors?  ;)

Would be easier, and i suggest it.
I attached a switch diagram to show you how you should wire it.
