Since there are eight optical slots on the chopper per turn, this means optical pulses per turn of the wheel. The motorboard micorchip an automatic low power shut off.

PIC18F – Microcontrollers and Processors – Microcontrollers and Processors

If the speed nicrochip this motor is less than 3mph, no power will be provided to the motors. If low power is detected the red LED will blink, and power will be shut off completely. Retrieved from ” http: The controller monitors the speed of one of the motors the one with a optical wheel “chopper” attached to an elongated motor shaft.


One turn of the wheel is at best inches The motorboard will not function and there will be no indication as to the cause of failure.

This prevents power from being applied to the motors until they are at least rotating at 3mph. The speed is controlled linearly, and no attempt is made to maintain a given speed for a given throttle position.

When the battery gets critically low, the RED light will illuminate. Because there is no indication that the motor is moving less than 3mph, if the optical wheel fails for any reason the motorboard will assume that 3mph has not yet been reached.

The motor makes approximately Privacy policy About Motorboards Disclaimers Mobile view. Actually it operates at Hz measured.

This page was last modified on 23 Marchat The current code cannot be read because the “Code Protect” bit has been set, but it is possible to erase the chip and program it with new code.


When the battery is almost dead, the red light will blink and the buzzer on the motor contoller PCB will beep on and off 1 second an8999, 4 seconds off until the battery reaches the low power shut off. When you turn the motorboard Micrlchip, the green light goes on then off, then the yellow light goes on then off then the red light goes on then off and then the green light goes on solid.

Then the operator pushes to go. This saves significant amounts of battery power and prevents the motorboard from starting accidentally.

The Roth motorboards “maximum” speed of 18mph translates to optical pulses per second. Navigation menu Personal tools Create account Log in. Views Read View source View history.
