  1. Dynamixel AX12 with phidgets

    Is the AX12 servo compatible with phidgets servo controllers?

    Nope, those can only control standard hobby servos. The ax-12s call for a half duplex UART, which isn't provided on any phidgets device.

    If you are using phidgets, you might have USB ports anyway and use the Dynamixel to USB converter in addition to your phidgets.

    Xevel's USB2AX is also an option. If you are only using AX or MX servos it is in my opinion a better choice than the USB2Dynamixel.

    Yeah, the USB2Ax is not only slightly cheaper, but it also has proper protection of the input/output serial bus; overvolting and spikes won't render it permanently useless like the USB2Dynamixel.
