Hi everyone,

I am trying to get my new RX-24F working with usb2dynamixel. Initially I thought the SDK provided here (http://support.robotis.com/en/software/dynamixel_sdk/usb2dynamixel/usb2dxl_linux.htm) would work too because it did for previous dynamixels but with ax series e.g. ax-18A. The same code does not work for RX-24F with the USBDynamixel switched to RS-485 mode and it is clear that I am missing some good understanding of how to communicate with RS-485. Has anyone tried RX-24F on linux? Could you please help me on that?

Thank you.

Keep in mind the RX-24F defaults to 57600 baud rate.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I went back to windows and found out that the baud rate was different from what the Linux code expects.

Thanks.
