This question may have already been answered and may even be a dumb question but i could not find it. How would i go about hooking this motor in the attached link to the ezbv4. It only has a positive and negative wire and no signal wire
mini gear motor
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Your robot can be more than a simple automated machine with the power of ARC Pro!
check the following tutorials:
motor with driver
Operating voltage: 3.5V - 8V
Clockwise pulse width range: 500us-1400us (500us speed maximum)
Stop pulse width range: 1400us-1600us
Anticlockwise pulse width range: 1600us-2500us (2500us speed maximum)
behaves like a continuous servo, although the pulse range (500-2500) is not 100% compatible with the EZB V4 range (560-2140), you can still hook to one of the EZB's digital port (0-23), the only limitation is the top speed.
you will need to do some tests to obtain the stop position (middle value e.g. 90)
servo position 1 will be max clockwise speed
servo position 180 will be max anticlockwise speed
i agree with Alan's opinion, the shaft can be a problem,
you have better chances with a continuous servo:
When you set servo position 1 the continuous servo will run at max speed forever until you send a stop position e.g. 90
Regarding feedback you will need extra hardware e.g potentiometer or 2 stop switches ...
servo simplifies a lot
the difference between a regular servo and continous servo is the potentiometer one has the other not.
Two stop switches both sides can provide feedback, two states run one side then stop.
Use a servo or the guts of a servo.
