Let me describe what I’m doing, and any help is greatly appreciated.
I am building a camera slider for timelapse photography.
I have the following setup: pic attached
The motor shield:
The shield is plugged directly into a Freetronics Eleven, the 4 wire motor is wired to the shield, and the whole lot is powered by a 12V 7.2A battery.
Currently my Eleven code requests 1 rev CW and 1 rev CCW. Just to measure the distance travelled on the rail for 1 rev.
But…it does about 5 or 6 revs, starts to slow down and then stops.
I disconnect the battery, wait a minute, and then the same happens.
Not sure where I have gone wrong here, any suggestions would be great.
