We are having issues lifting the slide past the intake using the motor. It lifts fine manually but does not push the intake during driver control. I increased the motor to maximum power but the lift does not push the intake.
Any suggestions on how this can be fixed programmatically or via design changes quickly.
Your tray geometry is exactly the reason I have added 3rd quadrant option to our TrayCalculator tool. I have tried modeling your setup by guessing from the photo, so here it goes.
Try moving the “Arm Angle” variable to 320 degrees, which seems to be close to your resting position, then observe the dot moving along the chart when trying to lift the try (you can also adjust the geometry variables to better match your actual setup).
In line with @JamesChase suggestion, note how different the torque curve is once your arm is on the other side, like 90-200 deg.
