DHB-10 ERROR - Motor or encoder error
I am encountering an error with the DHB-10 motor controller where the motors stop and the controller responds with an "ERROR - Motor or encoder error" when VERBOSE mode is on. I can reproduce this problem every time by sending GO commands for several minutes at high frequency (4 to 8 commands/second). To make the motors operate again, I turn everything off but the error always occurs after running for a few minutes.
Does anyone know what the issue is here? I have looked at the code for the DHB-10 firmware and it appears a MotorError occurs when the position controller cog stops running (when PDrunning < 1). From the code, it looks like this could be caused by either motor failing or a high offset without motor movement.
