We are using the KOP chassis with 4 Falcon 500’s replacing the 4 CIM motors. We used the Falcon upgrade kit from Andymark to facilitate the swap. We have also upgraded the KOP drive train to an 8" pneumatic wheel setup using the appropriate upgrade kit.
We were testing the motor setup and noticed something that I think might be a bit odd. When we set the four motors speed to anything less than 0.3, the robot does not move forward. I am aware that there is a certain amount of friction that must be overcome in order to see motion, but this seemed like a rather large value. Additionally, I would have expected the status lights on the Falcon 500 to flash green when the motor speeds are set to less than 0.3 even if the wheels don’t have enough power to spin, however we instead are seeing the orange flashing status lights in this case. When the speeds are set higher than 0.3, everything functions as expected.
Does it sound like something might be not functioning properly? Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions.
