Why is my module blinking red and stopping? (overload)

Symptoms: The joint module blinks red and stops moving for a period of time.

Possible issues and suggested solutions:

  • A motor on the module has been overloaded, i.e. commanded to perform a movement which it does not have the strength to perform. To solve: Modify program and/or robot configuration to avoid damaging the motor.
  • A motor has overheated. To solve: Let motor cool down.
