Hey guys. We plan on regulating our shooter velocities this year with encoders , either the VersaPlanetary integrated CRTE Mag Encoder or the REV Through The Bore Encoder, with RS775 Pros. What I would like to do is connect the encoder to a SparkMax through the Data or Encoder Port (MAG encoder or Through the Bore respectively) and use closed-loop PID to adjust and maintain a certain velocity, however, it is very likely that the RPM of the shooter will exceed the max RPM for either encoder according to REV’s website.
Has anyone tried to run closed-loop PID on the Maxes with high speeds such as a shooter? Did it work in reality or not? Or should I just give up on reading it with the SparkMaxes and just wire it to the Rio? Just looking to see if someone has tested high speed encoder readings already and see if it is a plausible idea.
