Dynamixel UART USB-RS-485 connector: the best way to connect your servo!
The latest generation of Dynamixel servo motors fall into two main categories: servos with a TTL interface and servos with an RS-485 connection. The latter need a specific adapter so they can be connected to a USB port, notably for programming and updating operations. This accessory incorporates an FT232RQ electronic chip designed to handle all the data sent over USB and transmit them via UART. Each adapter is fitted with a USB-A connector on one side and a 4 pin MOLEX connector, which is compatible with all your Dynamixel-R servos, as well as other devices with an RS-485 interface!
