Using Rhino RMCS-2301 with Rhino - DC motor with planetary Gearbox

Hi everyone on the forum.. Amazing to be here. This is my first time excuse if i am not following any etiquette .

I am trying to control Rhino - DC PLANETARY ENCODER GEARED MOTOR 24V 175RPM 100W using
RHINO Motor drive - RMCS 2301. I have tried sending pulses starting from 1 micro second to 100 milli second. the motor either moves dead slow or does not rotate at all.

Please suggest if i am missing something here.

program :

void setup()
{
pinMode(11, OUTPUT); // Pulse
pinMode(10, OUTPUT); // Direction
Serial.begin(9600);

digitalWrite(10, HIGH);
}

void loop()
{

digitalWrite(11, HIGH);
delay(100);
digitalWrite(11,LOW);
delay(100);

}

Well, what voltage are you supplying the motor driver with and what RPM is "dead slow"?

And please read this: :slight_smile:

How to post your code in the Arduino forum:

After you have typed your message, start the Arduino IDE if not already running and load or type in your code.
Right click in the editor window then left click [Select All].
Right click again then left click [Copy].
In the forum [New Topic] or [Reply] page, click the

code symbol in the upper left.
Right click in the box that appears then left click [Paste].

Or type:

I have supplied 24 to motor. RPM may be about 1/2 rpm.

Thanks for the instruction. Sure will follow in future.

Thank you

Please can somebody help on this..????

Post links to the datasheets for your motor and for the motor driver.

Thank you for your time @ Robin2
here are the links

I am trying to control it using UNO.

It seems like that driver can be controlled like a stepper motor driver so I would expect your simple code to work. It may be a good idea to increase the delay()s for initial testing.

Make a pencil drawing showing how you have everything connected and post a photo of the drawing.

Your image has not worked. have a look at this Image Guide

Hope this works.

The Arduino connections in your diagram seem correct. It would be worth trying another Pin in place of 13 because the circuit for that pin is a little different to accommodate the LED.

You have not said how many amps are available from your 24v supply - can it meet the motor's requirement?

Apart from that I am out of ideas.

...R

power supply is capable of up to 20-30 Amps, which meets the Motor requirement. I have tried with other pins too.
I will keep trying, if anything comes to your mind do share. Thank you for your time though.

Will share if i find a solution.

thank you

Sounds completely normal. Your gearmotor has 72000 counts per revolution, so it needs 72000
steps per revolution. Try giving it steps at a decent rate.

pls send me the programs.

What programs?

pls tell me how you set the motion controller...

Why don't you start at the beginning...

  • Tell us all about your project.
  • Post links to the datasheets for the hardware you are using.
  • Draw a simple diagram showing how you have connected everything and post an photo of the drawing.
  • And post the Arduino program that you have tried.
