Whenever we are using CAN motor controllers using Phoenix tuner on our robot, the motors stop working intermittently. I’ve included a video, and you can hear the problem. In this example, we’re not playing with any sliders or anything, just setting a power and letting it go. This problem propagates to all motors powered by a CAN motor controller, including the Talons on the Falcons. We utilize PWM controllers as well, and those do not suffer from the same fault, however we ran those in code, vs. running the CAN motors in phoenix tuner. The firmware for some motor controllers is fully up to date on the falcons, and almost up to date on our Victor SPXs
Just to provide some info on what the motor controllers are doing, they are flashing the operating colors when the motor is running, go to orange during the period of the stop, and then return back to the operating colors. This problem really stumps us, so we’d really appreciate any help any of you can offer.
