My name is Miguel and i’m a student and investigator from FEUP at OPorto. I’m in a project where we are using 4 T200 Thrusters with bluesc and now that i’m testing the hardware that will work with the thrusters i’m getting some problems that i need to solve:
I’m controlling the thrusters using I2C and for now im just testing if my hardware can detect if they are “alive” or not. The question is that, when i turn them on after they are connect to the hardware and running the firmware, 1 of them, that i believe is from a different batch, will become almost instantly “alive” and the other will become “alive” after 10-15s or sometimes even more.
I’ve flashed all the thruster to have different id so i can have them work with I2C.
The serial number for the first 3 is 259,260,261 and the 4th 791.
Can someone help me with this problem? Is there any difference on the firmware between the 2 batchs of the thrusters?
