Talon SRX follower

My team is using two Talon SRX (775 pro 3:1). After 15s one of the Talons turn it off for a few seconds and then turn it on. Any suggestions of what’s happening?

I’ve set it in the programming one to be follwer of the master

Sounds like the breakers are tripping causing one of the Talons to lose power. A self test will reveal this with the “reset during enabled” fault.

This may be due to the follower having the incorrect invert setting, and causing the motors to fight each other.

Follow the invert section under the documentation for the master: https://phoenix-documentation.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ch13_MC.html#inverts
And then determine if the follower is supposed to drive in the same direction as master (as in both turn clockwise or counterclockwise) or oppose the master (as in one turns the clockwise and the other counterclockwise) Detailed in the follower section: https://phoenix-documentation.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ch13_MC.html#follower

I did not add this lines of code (
_talon0.setInverted(false); // pick CW versus CCW when motor controller is positive/green
_victor0.setInverted(InvertType.FollowMaster):wink: because both talons are spinning in the right direction. Should I added this code anyway?

It’s a good idea to be as verbose as possible in your software to ensure there’s nothing that gets missed. So I would add the setInverted(false) and setInverted(InvertType.FollowMaster) regardless of what the root cause is.

How did you prove this out? The way I would is by having only one Talon connected to its motor and spinning forward, then doing the same for the other Talon.

If this isn’t resolved with an invert, I would take a self-test snapshot of both Talons while the mechanism is running to get more information.
