i need help using this controller.
I was able to get it wired up ok thanks to dschulpius
but not i cannot control it from the ezb
I only have forward. no reverse. I am using a servo Controls - Modified servo Movement Panel
It maybe that I don't know what I am doing.
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Harnessing the power of ARC Pro, your robot can be more than just a simple automated machine.
Based on your post activity, we found some content that may be interesting to you. Explore these other tutorials and community conversations.
Once you have done that it should work. All I can suggest is that you check the config.

Do you have a datasheet or link to the controller? I've not used one but the datasheet should tell me all I need to know.
Under "Project menu" Select "Add" then Select "Servo" and make sure you have chosen "Modified servo Movement Panel".
Once you know you have the proper Movement Panel control installed you'll see a small icon of a gear in the upper left corner. Click on that gear and you will get into the Config section where you select the ports you have plugged your servos into on the EZB. Make sure you have the plugs installed in the proper orientation. Black is ground and goes towards the inside of the board. Again, make sure your ports in the config area of the Movement Panel match the port you have the servo control cables plugged into on the EZB.
Here's a vid DJ made on how to do this:
Hope this helps.
Here is how to add and configure the Modified servo Movement Panel
Go to project on the ribbon and choose Add. Then look for this control (highlighted red) under the "servo" group
Click on the gear icon to go to the config (again highlighted red)
Set the correct ports (red) and check the default values (green)
Provided the controller is connected correctly (ground/black to the inside of the board) it should work.
thank you to all that have helped.
If you use the Contact Us page the EZ-Robot staff may be able to help with port D1. It could be a case of the main chip needs removing and pushing back in again but then again it could be something more complex. Drop them an email and they will help you if they can.
Great news that it's running now though. You'll find the more you play with ARC and the EZ-B the easier it becomes. It's all pretty simple to use and most things you will come up against are very well documented too, and if not then the community will always step up and help It's the best community I've been a part of and it's how I learned what I know really, to think I've been active on here for around 12 months now and there isn't much that gets by me
Looking forward to seeing your progress.
