SparkMax Controller Reset

It seems that our sparkmax controller for our arm is resetting occasionally due possibly due to brownout so that the encoder resets to 0. I am trying to find out how to test for this but can not find documentation on sparkmax faults. I am thinking of this code:

    if (mArmMotorController.getFault(CANSparkMax.FaultID.kHasReset)) {
       //deal with reset

but want to get some confirmation that this will be called only once if a reset occurred. I can’t test fully since then next time we run the robot will be on the practice field during competition.

You want the sticky fault version of this.


Since this fault ‘sticks’ around, you should also clear faults after detection
