Also.. After lots of investigating. The encoders were not wired correctly, well they were all the way to the viper driver, but i spliced them incorrectly into the serial connector (DB9). I will have to resolder/rewire and try again.. Hopefully it did not fry anything, encoder or driver... ****..
Viper encoder Pinout:
pin6 not used
pin7 not used
pin8 not used
How NOT to wire it
Pin6 not used
Pin7 not used
Pin8 not used
I was basically feeding 5V into my B+ channel.. and i'm 100% sure i did that on each and every encoder. Do you think the encoders will be ok? The other channels were all mis matched, and ground was the only thing that was connected correctly.
That is what i get for working late and starting wiring on 2 sides of the machine at once and having them not match.
Also shot an email to US digital asking them if i damaged the B+ channel. I read my 5V has 250ma of power.
