So my team(2648) just bought a new black Jaguar, and the required serial to rj12 connector.
I hooked it up to my computer, and ran the BDC-COMM program, it says “Status: Connected”
I downloaded the firmware, qs-bdc25.bin and it seemed successfull.
then I preceded to try to set the motor voltage, and the display at the bottom of the GUI says Vout 11.95. But when i connect a meter to the terminals, i get az reading of 0. Also after connecting a motor, changing the voltage again, the motor does not move.
Did i do something wrong.
Is tehre any documentation otner than that of whats on the luminaryMicro site?
Did you make the cable yourself? If so, did you terminate it correctly? You need to make a terminator to plug into the last unused rj12 port on the jaguar. More information can be found in the Getting started guide.
You’re seeing a red blinking light when setting the motor to forward? That means the jaguar is detecting a fault somewhere. Make sure Vbus is a reasonable number, and that Limit doesn’t have a F or R in it. If there is an F or R in Limit, double-check the jumpers on the jag
