Thread: controlling dynamixel mx-64at

  1. controlling dynamixel mx-64at

    Hello everyone,
    We are trying to build a biped robot with wheels. For the control of the servos, we decided to use rpi+u2d2 but because we are new in the linux and programming idea, we are wondering if there is an easier way to control the servos.( maybe a more expensive controller which will make it more simple to control). We have basic knowledge in c programming.
    Also, we will use 14 dynamixels for the whole project and we decided that we need to power jump every 3-4 servos. We figure it out how to connect the servos with one battery but we don't really understand how the schematic will be with 3-4 batteries.
    We will be glad to hear your advises.

    Thanks in advance,

    If you want to use multiple batteries, then you need to create custom Dynamixel hub boards.
    The board would pass the serial signal/s and the ground signal through, but would disconnect the 12V signal (center pin) on the input connector, and instead connect the battery to the outgoing 12V pin.
