    Hello,
    Quarantine times ... Jobs are getting slow so now I have the time to reactivate my 2dof platform.
    It is an old project but it worked very well, except for the AMC controller that did not build right and caused problems in the h-bridge always burning mosfets.

    - So now I am replacing the AMC with an Arduino UNO r3.
    - The potentiometers I intend to replace with hall effect sensors. I have 2 types of IC hall but I haven't been able to successfully implement it yet.

    Electronics (still with AMC):

    Hello, My attempt to reactivate my platform was unsuccessful. First I tested the electronics separately with small motors, etc. and everything is ok. When I tested on the platform the problems started. First in the potentiometers, then a chain reaction burned the dsmhb (bridge h), optocoupler, arduino and just didn't get to the pc by luck. Anyway, I got tired of fighting with dsmhb. I spent more time solving related problems than building my own board or even playing games! I ordered two MM at $ 20 each and I hope this will resolve.

    I had already checked it twice but I decided to look again if there was a short circuit between the wiper motors and the platform but no.
    However, I noticed a brief voltage in the wiper motor body caused by induction. Is it normal? Motors mounted in the platform with no HB, strait to 12v car battery.
    There is a very little current as well ~50uA
    Other than that its ok.
    Very afraid of frying my Moto Monsters when they arrive this week.
