Directions

motor
1 = M2 = Rotate
2 = M4 = Upper Arm
3 = M3 = Lower Arm
4 = M1 = Gripper
direction
1 = CW = close = up
2 = CCW = open = down
4 = stop
time = time * 250

How to

Use the arduino serial monitor to send a string of digits to the arduino via USB. First digit is the motor. Second digit is the direction. Third digit is the time.
