    Hi all,

    im trying to create a 2DOF seat mover using to 2 x 12v wiper motors, arduino uno and 2 x BTS7960 43a drivers and 2 x 350w 12vdc psu's.

    The issue im having is that when the psu's are wired to the plug and plugged in i can measure 12v to all terminals in v+ and com but when i put the wire to the bts7960tand turn it back on the psu light wont turn on nor do i get the original 12 volts the terminals were receiving?

    Thanks,

    Eug

    Expecting that you have actually wired the system as required for it to work - you could try the following:

    1. Disconnect the BTS7960 and place in bin.
    2. Order a Sabertooth 2 x 32.
    3. Wiring the Sabertooth in as per the FAQ.
    4. Smile as everything works as it should.
    5. Cancel the appointment with the hair transplant surgeon and throw away the box of Valium.
    6. Send Seattime a PM thanking him for being such a great man.
    All TIC of course :D, but with a lot of truth behind it.
