Re: More than 2 WeMos Motor Shield on one WeMos?

Okay, my first idea seems not to work: Controll the voltage of the motor shields. on some strange way they'll get voltage if their GPIO is low or high. perhaps it's the reason of my simple construction and bad contacts. Anyway, it works if I control the input voltage of the motor side of the shield....

Re: More than 2 WeMos Motor Shield on one WeMos?

I think that I found the solution myself: I will try to give all WeMos Motor Shiels the same I2C adress and don't cennect them direct to VCC but each of them to it's own GPIO - if necessary by use of a transistor (I don't belive that's necessary). My first test seems to work, only the currency of th...

Do you have some experience meanwhile about the resolution of these sensors? In my case I fear it is not so good. From the range between 0 and 10 it seem only about 5 to 7 is realistic, ant that only in optimistic viewing. But perhaps my sensors just the cheapest ones.
