    Question(s) Re: USB2AX seems broken

    The only way I could think would damage stuff would be if on the USB2AX you had some crazy inversion of pins, like 12V on USB2AX GND, and GND on USB2AX DATA (it is not protected against -12V). But to...

    Question(s) Re: USB2AX seems broken

    Yeah, connecting the 12V pin on the USB2AX shoukd not be a problem, it's not internally connected to anything. And like already mentioned a few times, the DATA pin of the USB2AX *should* survive 12v...

    Re: What is the Bootloader on the XL-320

    Hey,

    Back a few years, I did some reverse engineering of the protocol, then wrote my own Dynamixel-ish bootloader for my custom Dxl devices.

    You should update the firmware of both to the latest version...

  12. Question(s) Re: USB2AX sync writes to 2 servos but not 3+ (USB2Dynamixel does)
