XL-Series

Connection to UART  

To control the DYNAMIXEL actuators, the main controller needs to convert its UART signals to the half duplex type. The recommended circuit diagram for this is shown below.

   
  

Pin Assignment

The connector pin assignments are as the following. The two connectors on the DYNAMIXEL are connected pin to pin, thus the XL series can be operated with only one connector attached.

   
  

Confirmation of Connection

The LED of DYNAMIXEL flickers once if the power is supplied to DYNAMIXEL properly via wiring.
