Can window motors use Spikes this year?
<R55> *All electrical loads (motors, actuators, compressors) must be supplied by an approved power regulating device (speed controller, relay module, or Digital Sidecar PWM port) that is controlled by the cRIO-FRC on the ROBOT.
A. Each CIM motor and Fisher-Price motor must be connected to one and only one approved speed controller. These motors must not be connected to relay modules.
B. Servos must be directly connected to the PWM ports on the Digital Sidecar. They must not be connected to speed controllers or relay modules.
C. If used, the compressor must be connected to one and only one Spike relay module.
D. Each other electrical load (motor or actuator) must be supplied by one and only one approved speed controller, or one and only one relay module.
It says only CIM and Fisher-Price motors can’t be connected to relays.
we did this on our old robot; we recently tested out our old robot on the new control system. It does work, and as the last post stated, it is legal.
