Motor Adapter for NI myRIO (how many BLDC can connect this this adapter)

Question

Hello,

I am completing a project that requires more than 4 brushless DC motors. I have 2 Motor Adapters for my NI myRIO.

I am wondering if it is possible to connect 8 BLDC motors to the myRIO with these 2 adapters. If not, what is the maximum amount of BLDC motors that I can connect?

I need to be able to control the speeds of these motors but only 4 need to run at the same time.

Thank you so much in advance!

Hi @Ree,

The Motor Adapters for the NI myRIO only support using two independent motors at a time, so using two Motor Adapters (which I believe is all a myRIO can physically support) you would only be able to use 4 motors in total. From my understanding, you would need to run two myRIO's simultaneously, which I imagine LabVIEW can do without issue, but those of us here on the Digilent Forum are not the experts on that front compared to the folks at the NI forum.

Let me know if you have any questions about this.

Thanks,
JColvin
