I’m in need of some help with a connectivity problem I’m having. (V2.8)
I have followed the assembly instructions, but I am having trouble connecting to the cockpit. t seems the ROV keeps turning On and Off intermittently (HPWR). The homeplug connect led is off, and the other 2 leds are always on. The pwr led on the control board is always on. I have followed the steps on the connectivity troubleshooting, with no success.
Then I measured the resistances on the ESC’s (power off), and here’s what I got:
ESC 1 - Between GND and motor lead 1 - 0 Ohms. Between GND and motor leads 2 and 3 ~20Kohms
Between PWR and motor lead1 - varies from 0 to 6,5 kohms. Between PWR and motor leads 2 and 3 - 26 kohms
ESC 2 and 3 - Between GND and motor leads 1, 2 and 3 - 20kohms
Between PWR and motor leads 1, 2 and 3 - 26kohms
That is not normal behavior for ESC1, right?
Is it safe to say that my connectivity problems are due to ESC1?
And if that is a reasonable suspicion, what should be the next step? Can I just remove ESC1 from the control board and try to connect without it?
Any suggestions would be very much appreciated
