Motor controller not responding
#1
Hello,
I have OpenPlotter working on a RP 3B and also pypilot is functioning. I am reprogramming the arduino nano to work with my Neco Autopilot (it should work with the relay box). The Arduino Nano was functioning for a while like I programmed it (for several days) with LED's as motor outputs. After a while it stopped functioning. I tried another nano and it worked for a while but then it stopped again. The same result with an UNO.
On the nano and the UNO I see there is data coming in but then it restarts the board without processing the data?? There is enough power (I used an external power supply on the UNO) and the Arduino only has to power some LEDs..
The communication is sent over the USB ports.
I have tried a clean installation of OpenPlotter and reprogramming the Arduino boards. The result is the same.

If someone has a tip how to solve this I would be grateful.

For anybody who is interested.
It is working again but I don't know really why.
I changed to connection from the rp usb to serial arduino (pin 0 and 1) and there was no change.
Then I started up the serial monitor on the computer (which I used as power supply) and suddenly it is working ??.

If somebody can explain this, it would help to trust this system. Maybe the voltage off the rp not high enough.

To be honest, it is quite rare that reprograming the Audio boards didn’t worked out. I had a similar situation and that did the trick.

Hi
how do you drive the relays of the neco ? direct ?
Could it be that you consume more than the few
milli Amps the arduino gives at the pins ?
