    MX-64AR serial communication issue with Labview

    Hi. I'm completely new here. I'm trying to communicate with a MX-64AR with Labview but I struggle with what kind of instruction packet to send. I made a simple VI that usually works with serial communications but no information is returning from the sero. I have a 3rd party USB-RS485 adaptor and it works with the Dynamixel Wizard. Can someone give me the package info I need to send to get the model number?

    Optimistic regards
    Morgan

    The Robotis support site (support.robotis.com) has several downloads for the DXL (AX, RX, EX, MX) and DXL2.0 (XL, Pro) SDKs that include all the servo register values and packet formation/transmission functions ready to go with any serial port. It also includes instructions for getting those drivers working within Matlab and LabVIEW.

    I'm also working with LabView and MX servos. I created several VIs for communication. Here is an example how to set the goal position:

    Hi Tician and Abacus. Thanks for your help. I will try to use the SDK when I upgrade to labview 2016. I'm currently using 2014 and I could not find lower versions.

    I did eventually get a response from the servo, I had the wrong baud .

    Have a great day.

    Best regards
