Newton gripper with Arduino Mega

guide

(Ali Kian) #1

Hi,
I have connected the gripper with a 12v and the signal wire to PWM of the arduino mega 2560.
I ran the sweep program and there was no response from the gripper,
I checked my signal power and it is .5v.
Do I need additional circuit to turn the signal from .5 to 3.3v to make the gripper work ?

Hi Ali,

Can you share your code and a picture of how you have this wired up?

Oh, I found my problem, the problem was that the arduino wasn’t sharing the same ground with the power source. Thank you for the quick response tho!
