Thread: Dynamixel MX-64 and MX-106

  1. Dynamixel MX-64 and MX-106

    I just concluded a nice email exchange with Robotis and they informed me about release of Dynamixel MX-64 and MX-106, which they hope will happen in December this year. Both servos will have TTL interface in MX-28 style. Price is expected to be the same or only slightly higher.

    By the way, for those who have not seen the official video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVb0L9CuNdM

    One interesting point: MX-64 and EX-106 will have real current based torque control. I'm exited to see what will be possible to do with it

    Hey, I'm shopping around for 100kg servo. Will it (the MX-106) be available within a week or so? Or should I get the EX106? (it's December...)

    I wouldn't hold my breath -- Robotis announced on their twitter account "The MX-64 and MX-106 scheduled for release by December in Korea. (might be delayed though!)" about a month ago. Seeing as they still haven't hit the market in Korea, I doubt you will get them outside of Korea before the end of the year.

    Do you know when these will be available?

    Thanks,

    I got some engineering prototypes to evaluate in mid-January. Based on previous product releases, it's typically been about 2-3mo after that before they are available from retailers in the US.

    Interesting, if you're not under an NDA or similar, how big a difference have you noticed in comparison to the RX-64 and EX-106?

    Well, in my opinion, the biggest change for the MX-64 vs RX-64 is the increased resolution, which for things like arms is awesome, but I'm not sure it helps much with walking robots. As my robot runs off 12V SLA, the fact that all the MX-family is targeted at 12V is a big win, as I now get more torque than I used to (I was previously running EX-106/RX-64s at 12V, so they didn't get as much torque as the rated value).

    Thanks for the info, looks like this'll be very interesting to watch. One last query, is there any change in backlash between the MXs and RXs, or is the geartrain &c all the same?

    The only difference is the electronic board.
