All the performance of the X series servo motor in an IP68 protection structure.

No, the Dynamixel XW540-T260-R servo motor is not 100 % waterproof. But its waterproof design allows it to achieve the quite respectable score of 68 in the international protection standard:

  • The number "6" indicates that this Dynamixel servo offers maximum resistance against dust;
  • The "8" evaluates its level of resistance against water. As a reminder, the maximum score for this parameter is 9.

Concretely? This Dynamixel X series servo-motor can remain underwater for up to 30 minutes to a depht between 1 and 3 meters. Enough to launch some underwater explorations with the right equipment: rustproof chassis and sealed sensors.

For the rest, this XW540-T260-R model remains worthy of the equivalent series servo motors from Robotis.

100% programmable Dynamixel servo for control freaks

As a reminder, the X-Series Dynamixel servo motors are part of the latest generation of servos developed by Robotis. High definition servo motors, offering multiple operating modes such as PWM control and ultra-complete feedback on the machine's operating parameters.

How to wire the Dynamixel XW540-T260-R servo motor

The very careful design of this metal servo motor with RS485 connection and its performance in terms of transmission speed, resolution or programming make it a first class waterproof servo. One of the must-haves for advanced robotic design enthusiasts.
