Interface for speed controlling devices.
disable() → None¶
Common interface for disabling a motor.
get() → float¶
Common interface for getting the current set speed of a speed controller.
The current set speed. Value is between -1.0 and 1.0.
getInverted() → bool¶
Common interface for returning the inversion state of a speed controller.
isInverted The state of inversion, true is inverted.
set(speed: float) → None¶
Common interface for setting the speed of a speed controller.
speed – The speed to set. Value should be between -1.0 and 1.0.
setInverted(isInverted: bool) → None¶
Common interface for inverting direction of a speed controller.
isInverted – The state of inversion, true is inverted.
setVoltage(output: volts) → None¶
Sets the voltage output of the SpeedController. Compensates for the current bus voltage to ensure that the desired voltage is output even if the battery voltage is below 12V - highly useful when the voltage outputs are “meaningful” (e.g. they come from a feedforward calculation).
NOTE: This function must be called regularly in order for voltage compensation to work properly - unlike the ordinary set function, it is not “set it and forget it.”
output – The voltage to output.
stopMotor() → None¶
Common interface to stop the motor until Set is called again.
