    DC Motors Plus

    Captains,

    i use a DC Motors Plus Card to control my DC Motors and servos in my throttle quadrant. With a very simple script i control the trim wheel motor (modelcraft RB35), tested with SIOC 4.5B1 as well as 5.0 B5. With both versions, when running the motor SIOC and the motor as well stop working after a few seconds, the usb disconnect sound can be heard and the red led of the Card Switches off. After killing SIOC process and restarting everything works againf until the motor is powered again for more than a few seconds again.

    Motors are protected against electrical interference with ceramic condensers, motors are powered by an external power supply and the card is connected to he computer through an active, powered usb hub. After weeks i have no idea, how to get this stuff working What should i do?

    When using testdcmotorsplus.exe the card is working properly - i don't have any ideas:--(

    Best regards,

    Michael
