Day 11: That Darn Electrical Board

Well, we mounted the makeshift electrical board, which had 10 Talons, 1 PCM, 1 VRM, and 1 PDP. (The RoboRio is attached to a separate electrical board). We attached the Talons to the motors and PDP, and turned on the robot. Only 5 Talons show up. No PCM, VRM, PDP. We checked the CAN connections, changed a couple crimps, and tried again. 4 Talons. Did this for about 2 hours. Check, diagnostics, fix possible problems, at it again. Still could not figure out the problem. Changed all of the crimps. Same result. Both of our programming mentors were out today. One will come tomorrow.
