I’m having communication issues that seems very similar to:
And from a previous posts intermittent communication issues have been attributed to EMI. I went and got short USBs, ferrite chokes, USB isolators but without solving the issue and I’m hoping now it’s something I can solve by using CAN protocols? or with some grounding magic. Also according to: Understanding the risk of a ground loop it seems like it might be ground loops but my Odrives are isolated so I don’t think it’s that.
This is all out of my league for now but the working theory is that the power supply noise is screwing with Odrive->computer communications because I’m on the latest firmware, and I get communication issues with the boards even if the motors are unplugged.
My question is will shorting the negative terminal and power supply ground help /be something worth checking or will that explode ?
