My goal is to control two DC motors using the Sabertooth 2x32 motor driver with the driver's DIP switch settings set on analog mode. I read the driver's manual, but there is a couple of things I don't understand with the documentation on the analog mode DIP switch settings.
There are two DIP switches which confuse me: the DIP switches 4 and 6. I tried to understand them and at first I thought I understood how they work so I tried something but it didn't work. So I tried playing with the switches to find a configuration which would work but each time the motors ended up acting weirdly and far from what I was expecting. Then I decided to focus on a single position of the DIP switches. So I tried to understand how the motor would behave with the DIP switch 4 ON (Mixed) and the DIP switch 6 OFF (Unidirectionnal). Though I ended up getting even more confused, but at least I knew why I was confused.
At this point, I'm not even gonna try to understand how the other configurations work since they seem even more confusing. So I guess I'm just gonna keep trying things until I understand or until a very kind person explain me how it works. ;)
I know there are libraries available but I don't want to use them.
Note: I have a background in computer programming and not in electrical engineering. I do this as a hobby and I'm a complete beginner in electrical engineering. So please apologize for my lack of knowledge.
