It’s been a while since the last post… mostly because my new job is taking away most of my time…
But also because I had to fix several issues in Anima before mounting the legs and the upper body. First I had to fix the sound problem, curiously the IR sensor was generating noise which was propagated up to the audio amplifier, thus generating audible noise… To fix it I added to capacitors (100nF & 10µF) on the sensor’s power connection. Then I burned the Li-ion charger 😦 so I had to replace some mosfet and add some heatsinks.
Finally after 20 months of design, tests, doubts, bug fix, etc… Animabot is assembled and ready to walk !!!
Stay tuned 😉
Hi, I am Sapan Agrawal from India. I am using Herkulex motor for Humanoid project. Unfortunately i burnt the Mosfet of two drs 0201 motors. One while I performed torque testing (gave 7.8 kgfcm) and another just when i connected to the supply(reason still unknown). Also I face many times my herkulex not getting detected by herkulex manager. Can u pls help why the mosfets are getting burnt out and how could i solve it.
Looking fierce! Can’t wait to see more.
