I am wiring a Arduino uno with a knob to run a servco motor in my boat to control my throttle.
I hooked everything up to the diagram i found on this site, and powered it up from my marine battery (12v). The board was on for about 2 mins, then all the lights went out and it wouldn't power on. Also where I had the plug in for power, it was getting hot.
So I took it inside and hooked it up via USB to my computer, the 2 lights on the board go on for about 2 seconds, then they shut off?
Did I fry the board when I hooked it up to my marine battery? The battery is only putting out 12v and the board should be able to support that correct? Do I need to add a Voltage regulator to my setup, 12v to 9v??
