I am trying to use multiple ODrives to control a cable robot. The four boards will be fed by a Quanser QPIDe Data Acquisition Device. The Quanser can only give out simple analog outputs. So, my question is multi-faceted.
- is it even possible to control both motors of an Odrive with only analog inputs? if so, in what control mode?
- how would you test such a system? would it be okay if I just attached a basic circuit (with variable resistance) to the analog input pins and then tested the system using differing resistances? or do I need something that can input a variable voltage?
It seemed like there was another with a similar issue, but his question hasn’t been answered: Analog Velocity Control not working for me
I don’t know enough about the ODrive to know where to begin, so I am asking here before I start trying to edit firmware (which I assume is necessary to get a system like this working).
