5th motor woes...
This year, I convinced my team to let some of our electrical equipment be part of our spare parts so I could finish a last little bit of programming. I ran into a fairly large problem though, our current design needs five motors running: two for the drive train (CIM), one for a ball intake system (Window Motor), one for a rubber band elevator system (CIM), and one more to use for an arm (Window Motor). When I have only the first four, everything works as expected, but when I add the arm, everything falls apart, complete with flashing yellow lights on the speed controllers. I don't do anything with that motor, I simply open the reference in begin and close it in finish, but somehow opening the reference causes this problem. I've tried other PWM inputs and different names of the reference (Arm, Pole, Bar, even Blag!!) and keep getting the same result, but if I simply delete it, everything is fine. Any ideas on the problem or ideas for a solution?
I am programming using Labview, I didn't know if this was a problem specific to it or not, so I decided to post this in programming. I don't know anything about how other languages work, so my apologies if it doesn't make any sense outside of labview.
