Powering the Dagu 4 Channel Motor Controller
October 6, 2012
I'm all set to start on my first robot as described in an earlier topic - Rover 5, Dagu Redback and Dagu 4 ch motor controller. I tend to take instructions a bit literally sometimes but the manual for the motor controller says: "The motor power supply should not be connected without first connecting the +5V for logic". My intention is to power the whole setup with a 2S LiPo (probably a 2650mAh). In which case, can the motor supply and +5V logic (which I'll source from the Redback 5V output) be connected simultaneously or do they really need to be connected in sequence?
