Re: 2012 FRC Team 1717 Uncut

I had a few questions regarding encoders:

We're working on our drivetrain over the summer. The past two years we have used CAN with our Jaguars, connected to a 2Can, but it has been riddled with problems. So we are switching to PWM which I know you guys use and plugging the encoders into the sidecar. Since each encoder can take 2 I/O ports, how did you manage that-did you fill one up? (if so, did you use more than one sidecar?) How did your sensor arrangement work, did you use many others besides the encoders and the gyro?

Thanks for taking the time to answer these questions, it is greatly appreciated!
