I have an electric wheelchair that i currently control with a spektrum dx5e transmitter, receiver, and sabertooth 2x25 motor controller.
I want to connect to my ez-b.
The only problem (which should be simple)
I just need the ez-b to talk to my motor controller.I need to know, what type of output the ez-b sends outbecause the sabertooth can receive 4 types of incoming signal. (I just have to flip the correct switches.)
Sabertooth can receive 4 types of inputs: Analog, R/C, simplified serial, packetized serial
The sabertooth has 4 low level connections...
0v,5v,S1,S2 (negative, positive, signal 1,signal 2)
It controls 2 motors.
It has 6 other connections...
I know to hook it up in this order...
Motor 1 positive (color may vary)
Motor 1 negative(color may vary)
Negative power for the big motors
Positive power for the big motors
Motor 2 negative(color may vary)
Motor 2 positive(color may vary)
I know It is ok to reverse the motor #2's wires if the wheels don't move the right direction.
Here are the specs on the sabertooth.
(I will update this post later, I'm on iPhone so I can not upload pics at this time.

I just need to know, which ARC controls I need to control it manually (it only has two drive wheels, just like zero turn mower).
I need to have the ping radar to make it avoid obstacles too.
I know basically how to get the Movement Panel working with the ping radar, and Movement Panel because it would highlight the movement panels's buttons when I put my hand in front of the ping sensor.
Just not sure which baud rate and serial type or other signal type that ez-b will put out.
Forgive me for repeating myself, I'm on iPhone. It's hard to edit and remember what I already wrote since I'm at work and it's taking me a while to finish this post.
Thanks in advance.
