  • New revision of the Dual VNH5019 motor driver shield for Arduino

    New revision of the Dual VNH5019 motor driver shield for Arduino

    - 24 February 2016

    Hello, Harry.

    Like we say on the shield's product page: while the shield's overvoltage protection typically kicks in at 27V, it can trigger at voltages as low as 24V, so we do not recommend using this motor driver with 24V batteries, which significantly exceed 24V when fully charged. Specifically what voltage the shield's overvoltage protection kicks in at can vary from unit to unit, so there is a chance that the particular unit you get will not work with a 24V battery.

    Hello, MelZero.

    I noticed you made a comment on my Thingiverse web page asking a similar question. I posted a reply there, which is a more appropriate site to talk about this.

  • New product: Advancer Technologies Muscle Sensor v3

    New product: Advancer Technologies Muscle Sensor v3

    - 20 January 2016

    Hello, Ali.

    It is not entirely clear what you are asking (e.g. connect Muscle Sensors to what?), but it sounds like you might be trying to do something complicated or otherwise be looking for more in-depth technical support than is appropriate for blog post comments. Can you refine your questions and either email us or post to our forum?

    Specifically, if you explain in more detail what it is you want to do with two muscle sensors (e.g. what muscle(s) are you sensing, how are you planning on reading the output of the sensors, etc.), we might be able to give you a better idea of whether or not your proposed system could work and maybe refer you to additional documentation for getting started with your project.

    Hello.

    We do not have a video that focuses on our A-Star Prime. If you remember that video you were thinking of, we would be interested in seeing it.

    Hi, Richard.

    I am glad my write-up was useful! We would love to hear about your car when it is finished, especially if you are using some of our products. For that, you might consider replying here or starting a new thread on the Share Your Projects part of our forum.

    Using a Maestro to control a quadcopter

    - 24 December 2015

    Hello.

    I am not entirely sure who you are addressing, but we did not make the quadcopter featured in this blog post. So, you might get a more detailed response if you ask the person who made this directly. You could start by posting in the thread they shared their project to.

    Hello, Bob.

    We did not design the tug, so while we do know a few pieces of information about what went into the design for this project, we think it is more appropriate that the students get a chance to respond to your questions. We let them know you commented.

    Hello, Richard.

    Sure, I can share those files with you; I'll make them accessible via Thingiverse. However, this is my first time uploading and publishing a creation on Thingiverse, and they require a minimum wait time of 24 hours between account creation and publishing your first creation. For now, I was able to prepare and save a web page that they will be available at, so when it is published (by about this time tomorrow), I expect that you should be able to use this link to access those files.

    As for your laser-cutting question, I am not sure about the least expensive way to get those pieces cut, but you could use our laser-cutting service (and you can ask them specific questions about laser-cutting, too.).

    Hello, Matija.

    All of our High-Power Motor Drivers, including this one, were discounted during our Black Friday sale. The sale is now over, and the offers are no longer available.

  • 37D mm metal gearmotors with encoders and end caps

    37D mm metal gearmotors with encoders and end caps

    - 4 November 2015

    Hello.

    Unfortunately, the end caps only work with these new versions of our 37D mm metal gearmotors, which come with a special, pre-installed black plastic ring at the base of the motor that the end cap mounts to. There is no way to use these end caps with the older versions of our 37D mm metal gearmotors with encoders.
