I've got this motor driver: http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/707
This is not explicitly supported by Webbotlib, but it seems to be a standard PWM motor driver. Thus, I anticipate using the "Generic PWM motor driver" ( http://webbot.org.uk/WebbotLibDocs/27520.html
). I'll use a 3-pin approach since I have plenty of pins free on my Axon and/or Axon Mote...
But which pins on the motor controller am I wiring to?
-The Webbotlib documentation lists these pins as Enable, Input1, Input2.
-Project Designer lists the 3 pins as PWM, Input1, Input2.
-The dual motor driver has Diagnostics/Enable, InputA, InputB, PWM (Pic of pins
The input pins are prolly A->1 and B->2 (and if not right, I just reverse wires or invert in code). My question is
whether I want the enable pin or PWM pin on the motor driver. I'm assuming PWM pin... this also might just be a case of clarifying in the documentation. Edit2: Got my test set up with Axon, and indeed the PWM pin is the one I want.
Edit: a second question
(definitely @ Webbot this time)... I'm trying to add the generic motor driver to the Axon Mote* in Project Designer. For the supply logic source, I'm not given any options, even though my power supply to the Mote is 5V regulated. How do I get around this, or is it a bug in Project Designer? The 5V rails on the Axon and Axon 2 both show up if I do a project with those... See attached pic of Mote case.
*I understand that the Mote is not officially supported yet, but I got needed files from Admin a month ago and am just getting around to playing with them...
