Dynamixel servomotors

My Dynamixel servomotor is not detected, what can I do about it ?

Check that your Dynamixel servomotor is correctly configured. Do not hesitate to re-flash it with the ROBOTIS Software Roboplus. After re-flash remember to re-configure it. If the issue is not solved, contact us for an advanced support.

My motor works but it seems like there is an offset. Why ?

The motor is probably not well mounted. Check that you correctly mounted the horns by respecting the mark.

My Dynamixel servomotor seems blocked. I can't turn it even when it is not alimented.

There is probably a mechanical issue with the Dynamixel servomotor. You can directly contact us to get more advance support.

My Dynamixel servomotor is not working properly.

Check your power supply and the system cabling (try with a different servomotor). You can also reset the servo. If nothing works, the best solution is to go through the Dynamixel servomotor checklist!

What is the difference between Protocol 1.0 and Protocol 2.0?

The 1.0 protocol is dedicated to the Dynamixel AX and MX series. Protocol 2.0 is for the X and Dynamixel Pro series. Protocol 2.0 control tables include PID controls which allow for more precise adjustment of the servo motor movements. Protocol 2.0 can be updated on MX series servo motors. You can refer to the protocol 1.0 and protocol 2.0 pages for more informations.

Which connectors are used by Dynamixel servomotors and cables?

The connector types are molex and JST in 3 and 4 pins. You can find connector information on the pages corresponding to the Standard series (AX, MX, X) and the Pro series.
