Synchronizing Tetrix Motors
Our robot has scissor lift which is run by four tetrix motors powered by a 12V external battery pack, two on the right side, two on the left side. The way they are currently set up, the two motors on each side absolutely must
run at the same speed, otherwise they will strip gears and unleash all sorts of havoc. What we would like to know is: How can we synchronize each set of motors together in such a way that they will each get full power and that they will each be running at the same, constant speed?
If they were NXT motors, (for this example, MotorA and MotorB running at 80% power) the proper syntax should’ve been
where it would slave MotorB to MotorA, and run them at a constant speed without power fluctuations. We want to do the same thing but using differently named motors; we want to slave MotorE (not encoded) to MotorD (encoded) and to slave MotorG (not encoded) to MotorF (encoded).
