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... M1a,m1b,b-,b+,m2a,m2b
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. TJ TheGoodRobot
