Thread: Ant Weight Circuit Help

  1. #61
    Where did you get the motors from? Are they the rated at the same speed? And do they spin at all? I have bought those types of motors from ebay before and sometimes they give me a completely different speed that i have asked for. Sometimes I have also been given random dodgy motors that dont work properly either.

    Also how have you connected your motors together? are they in series or parallel? This last question is just for interest as i doubt that will be causing your problem

    I think it’s a motor problem! I’ve been buying lots from different places so no doubt they have got mixed up in my box! but I have brought it all with me To work so I’ll try swapping some round!

    In terms of connecting it up i I have put the right hand side on one set of pads and the left on the other set!

    Just noticed that two of the motors ( the left side ) are the oppersite to the right side in terms of how the plus and minus sit ! Would this matter?

    It would only matter if the front and back motors on one side, as in two motors on one set of pads, were connected with the plus sign opposite to each other. If that was the case then the motors would spin in opposite directions.

    Both motors connected to the dasmikro pads must be connected with the same orientation.

    Cant you find a Uk based supplier? I am sure that you can get what you are looking for that will deliver in less than a week ebay. If you have you have the money then you could look at technobotsonline.com. They sell pololu types and can deliver in a few days!
