The Dynamixel servomotors

Dynamixel Servomotors main features
  • All-around assembling structure: you can make robots of various forms as using different option frames.
  • Powerful feedback : It can read current position of Dynamixel or speed as well as various information such as internal temperature, supply voltage, target position.
  • Simple connection structure: Wiring is simple because it is linked by Daisy Chain.
  • Alarm function: When internal temperature, torque, supply voltage etc. escaped appointed range, it gives feedback about that situation. Also in such emergency situation, it flash LED or be Torque off.
  • Compliance configuration: It can configure the compliance to control the position.
  • Torque set up : Torque can be set up by 1023 steps from maximum Torque to free run state.
  • Low-electric current/high voltagedrive : Its efficiency is high because it runs by high voltage and it improves stability of robot system that is formed by Dynamixel because current consumption is low.
  • Status LED : It has LED that can check state of the Dynamixel.
  • Drive by network: Dynamixels have unique ID and are controlled by Packet communication on a bus. It supports network of TTL, RS 485, and CAN etc. according to model.

Programming the Dynamixel servomotors

The servomotors have to be linked to a main controller (CM-900, CM-700, CM-5, CM-510 or CM-530) to be commanded. The progams are made with RoboPlus, which allow really easy programmation, without much previous knowledge.

The most recent main controllers support embedded C and there is a SDK for you to developp your own applications.

The Dynamixel MX-64R servomotor

The MX-64T and MX-64R are new Dynamixel servomotors in the MX range. They replace and improve the RX-64 servomotor with a new absolute contactless encoder with 12 bit resolution (4096 positions), can be positionned over 360° in joint mode (251° previously), can be speed controlled in wheel mode and estimate their torque based on current.

Moreover they are controlled with a PID (proportional integral derivative ), which parameters can be set servomotor by servomotor. Admissible values are between 0 and 255 and the PID coefficients are modified with the following formulas:

The case of the RX-64 has also been lightly modified, the MX-64R servomotor is therefore not compatible with the HN05-N101/T101 horn.

The Dynamixel servomotor MX-64R supports the MS485 communication protocol (when MX-64T supports TTS communication) with high speed (3Mbs), it is compatible with the CM-700 controller. Warning, the operating voltage is not the same as the RX-64 voltage.
