Hello Everyone (again),
My understanding is the the Vin pin can be used to supply unregulated DC to the board in order to power it. I believe that if you use either the serial interface or the dedicated 2-pin battery connector, then you should also see an appropriate voltage ‘output’ to the Vin pin.
This does not seem to be the case on my Stalker. I have tried a voltmeter to the Vin, and get nothing out when powered via serial or battery. Neither does applying 9v to the pin (and GND) power up the board.
I don’t know whether this is a ‘feature’ of the Stalker, a bug, or my poor understanding.
Can anyone enlighten me or suggest a fix?
Many thanks for your time.
