Answered: Y-cabling question

My team members and I are wondering if there is some kind of current-limiter in the cortex ports, because we’re running 4 motors (2 high-strength’s and 2 2-wires) off of one battery, and our setup is current intensive.

**Yes, there are current limits. Please refer to the Users Guide for details on the current limits of the CORTEX Motor Ports.

If you are worried about power consumption, I would recommend using a power expander, this way you shouldn’t have to worry about drawing to much power off of your main and causing the micro-controller to drop.**
