Smart Servo Shield for Arduino (compatible with Dynamixel AX/MX servos)
Including €0.01 for ecotax
Smart Servo Shield for Arduino (compatible with Dynamixel AX/MX servos): communicate with as many servos as necessary!
Create a daisy chain connection between your Arduino and your Dynamixel AX and MX servos thanks to the DFRobot Arduino Smart Servo Shield. The idea is quite simple: the shield contains a half-duplex circuit that allows each operation transmitted by your UART cable to be communicated to all your servo motors. But because the message contains the ID of a specific servo, only that servo will perform the requested operation .
Even better, because the servos can be connected via a serial bus, all can transmit data on their position, speed, torque, current and the temperature of the motor, just as if your servos were gearmotors.
And if you prefer robots mounted on tracks rather than wheels, no problem, the Arduino Smart Servo Shield can do this too!
Uses for the Servo Shield for Arduino (compatible with Dynamixel AX/MX servos)
With this kind of accessory, you’ll allow your Arduino to control numerous and powerful servos (up to 200 servos, or even more!) both quickly and easily. The Dynamixel Servo Shield is compatible with Dynamixel AX servos (like the AX-12 and the CDS55xx) and Dynamixel MX servos.
You can use this shield not only for your own creations (robotic dog, hexapod, tetrapod, humanoid robot, robotic arm, etc.) but also to perform demonstrations for your students, since the Smart Servo Shield for Arduino allows you to obtain accurate data on the movement and position of all your servo motors.
