Motorboard Controller Source Code (Open Source) – Motorboards
The motorboard has an automatic low power shut off. This saves significant amounts of battery power and prevents the motorboard from starting accidentally. When the battery gets critically low, the RED light will illuminate.
Views Read View source View history. Then the operator pushes to go. When the battery is almost dead, the red light will blink and the buzzer on the motor contoller PCB will beep on and off 1 second on, 4 seconds off until the battery reaches the low power shut off.
The controller monitors the speed of one of the motors the one with a optical wheel “chopper” attached to an elongated motor shaft. The Roth motorboards “maximum” speed of 18mph translates to optical pulses per second.
This page was last modified on 23 Marchat This prevents power from being applied to the motors until they are at least rotating at 3mph. One turn of the wheel is at best miicrochip If the speed of this motor is less than 3mph, no power will be provided to the motors.
The motor makes approximately The speed is controlled linearly, and no attempt is made to maintain a given speed for a given throttle position.
If low power is detected the red LED will blink, and power will be shut an8999 completely. Retrieved from ” http: Because there is micrkchip indication that the motor is moving less than 3mph, if the optical wheel fails for any reason the motorboard will assume that 3mph has not yet been reached.
Actually it operates at Hz measured. The motorboard will not function and there will be no indication as to the cause of failure. Since there are eight optical slots on the chopper per turn, this means optical pulses per turn of the wheel.
When you turn the motorboard ON, the green light goes on then off, then the yellow light goes on then off then the red light goes on then off and then the green light goes on solid.
