Re: DCC1100 - no output

So, the short answer is your motor is really, really huge. Much too big for the little DCC1100.

Still interested in working with you, but we need a tighter line of communication. Can you email support@phidgets.com?

Re: DCC1100 - no output

Which motor part number do you have from Keya? Can you post photos of your wiring setup?

Re: OUT1001

Defaults are hard on the voltage outputs. If I was using a OUT1001 to create a signal for a big high power output, I would use a REL2002 to switch the output of the OUT1001. Use the Normally Open Output to isolate the output of the OUT1001. Open the OUT1001 in your code, switch the mode to 0-5V, set...

Re: Vint hub not connecting to Rasberry Pi

A comment for forums readers; newer Raspberry PIs generally have good USB voltage - and the VINT Hub is really unlikely to have power issues on -any- Raspberry PI.

Re: Problem with 1047 encoder board

This can be caused by a USB low voltage brownout when power is switched on to the encoder. Two solutions; first is to find a different USB cable (ideally shorter), and see if the issue goes away. Another solution is re-routing the 5V (Red Wire) to the encoder. Permanently power the encoder (by bring...

Re: Power supplies required to drive a bunch of steppers

It's actually more complicated. Holding current is usually the worst case current, but not the worst case power. I bet you will find that a single 24V 15A power supply will happily run all your steppers. If you think there is a possibility your application will call for all steppers to accelerate ha...

Re: HKT22 optical encoder newbie question / integration

Our Stepper Controllers don't do closed loop control; but our newer DC Motor Controllers do. DCC1000 and DCC1002 both accept an encoder input, and using the Proportional API object, you get a interface similar to a stepper motor, but using a DC Motor. Depending on your application, DC Motors can be ...

Re: PhidgetLED-64 Advanced wiring

All of the 'Anode' Pins (selectable 1.7 to 5.0 volts) are wired together on the LED64. This is the Red Wire. The current is controlled on the cathode side of the LED; the black wire. So, you can't connect all the 'grounds' together in your project; but you can connect all the +5V together. We contro...
