We have a clawbot for tower takeover, that has a motor that randomly stops after hitting the cube
- taking the arm and gear off the shaft of the motor so we can freely test the motor and see if the motor or other hardware was bad. It was not because it was spinning fine, so we know that our motors and motor controllers and hardware are good
- giving the arm manual power instead of using the joystick; it would still hit the cube, and the motors would stop running after the standoffs hit the cube, even if there was still a number in debugger windows
- Taking off the standoff arm and using a gear instead. We would hold the gear in place for a few seconds, to see if it was the circuit breaker in the cortex or motor controller to stop if the motor couldn’t turn when drawing too much current. However, when we let go the motors would continue to spin.
After troubleshooting steps, we still had the same issue of the standoffs hitting the cube, and not have power in the motor anymore.
Any help? Thx
