I'm tinkering with the G-bot some more. I found out why I could not get the neon working before. It turns out my power system design did not supply adequate voltage to the neon transformer. Without boring you all with the details, it was only getting 11.3 volts which was just below the transformers minimum input threshold. That being said, I ordered a new voltage converter with plenty of oomph (100 watts - the transformer needs about 68 watts) directly from china... While I'm waiting for the slow boat (yawwnnn...) I decided to get around to installing a linear actuator I purchased long ago to act as the robot's bubble lifter. So far so good.
I have one of the L298 2.5 amp controllers that I want to use to control it. All I need is for the actuator to get full voltage and be able to switch polarity to raise or lower the bubble. There is no need to vary its speed, just full up or full down.
What is the simplest way to connect it to the EZB?
Thanks in advance!
