This software can be used to change the ID, name, limit switch settings, invertedness, and stop behavior of an SD540C. It can also be used to update the device's firmware. Read the blog post for details on how to use it.
SD540C uses CAN protocol to communicate with the roboRIO.
Note: CAN requires a 120 ohm terminating resistor to ensure signal integrity, especially over distances.
See the blog post for detailed information on CAN and network topologies.
This LED will turn Red when Power is supplied.
This LED turns Red in Forward direction and Green in Reverse direction.
This LED blinks quickly when no CAN devices are connected. It turns off if it is connected to the roboRIO and the driver station is open.
