Servomotor Dynamixel MX-28AT

Servomotor Dynamixel MX-28AT

Robotis | A-000000-01530
The MX-28T is the new name of the MX-28 Dynamixel servomotor that powers the robot DARwIn-OP. The MX-28T actuator is intelligent and precise.
The MX-28AT is an improvement upon the MX-28T model. "A" stands for "Aluminium", the new aluminium body is now allowing a better heat distribution, and the MX-28AT is also equipped with a new fastening system.

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.

Dynamixel actuators are controlled by Packet communication

This video illustrates the capabilities and the existing application for Dynamixel servomotors:

Programming the Dynamixel servomotors

The servomotors have to be linked to a main controller (CM-700, CM-5, CM-510, CM-530 or OpenCM9.04) to be commanded. The programs 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-28AT actuator

The MX series differs from the other due to features such as a more advanced features on the PID control, 360° control et high speed communication. The MX-28 servomotor has been splited into two models: the Dynamixel MX-28T actuator that keeps the Half duplex Asynchronous Serial Communication protocol and the TTL Level Multi Drop physical link, when the Dynamixel MX-28R actuator uses RS485 communication protocol and multi drop bus.

The actuator MX-28AT Dynamixel is an upgrade of the MX-28T model, the two enhancements are:

 An aluminium body, providing an optimal heat distribution, which allows the actuator to stay cooler than theMX-28T.

The MX-28AT actuator also comes with a new fastening system, thread disks therefore eliminating the need for screws.
