Project update 16 of 21
Your motors will be arriving in the next few business days! In preparation, we wanted to send an update to help guide you through the setup process.
What should I do before receiving my modules?
We suggest that you visit our website (iq-control.com) for all necessary materials. On our website you can find the following pages under the “Support” tab:
Control Center - the IQ Control Center is our user interface. Connect to the user interface to initialize your motor, change settings, and update firmware. You can download the Control Center from this page.
Documentation - this page includes the instruction manual, product datasheets, communication manuals, etc.
Libraries - this page includes links to our communication libraries
Firmware - this is where we will release new firmware updates. Over the next month, we will release different firmwares
Please keep in mind that over the next few weeks we’ll be rolling out updates to our user interface, libraries, and other materials. If you have any feedback or feature requests, please let us know!
Can I use the motor out of the box?
There are a few steps you have to take before using your module. You have to solder wires to your module and connect to the IQ Control Center to initialize it. Please visit our instruction manual for setup details.
For speed modules, you must set a variety of parameters before you can use them. For example, you must set motor direction, FC mode, and control mode. You also have the option to upload pre-made settings for specific applications. For position modules, you should connect to the Control Center and update your desired settings.
What should I do if I have troubleshooting issues?
If our manuals or the FAQ section on our website can’t answer your question, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us through the Crowd Supply website or email@example.com.
NOTE: we have a known bug in the IQ Control Center that we are in the process of fixing. In the “Testing” tab, the coast and brake buttons do not work. Don’t be alarmed, just command 0 PWM or 0 V and your module will stop spinning.
All bugs will appear in our errata document.
