Name and Usage of Each Part

 

Name Explanation
① Communication Status Display LED If there is an outgoing signal  through ZIG-100 in RS-232, TXD is turned on; if there is an incoming signal through ZIG-100, RXD is turned on.
② ZIG-100 Connector It is to connect ZIG-100 to ZIG2Serial.
③ ZIG-100 Status Display LED

The status of ZIG-100 is displayed.

  • If it is turned off : ZIG-100 is not connected or in set status.
  • If it is turned on : It is connected to other ZIG-100 and thecommunication is ready.
  • If It  flickers : Other  ZIG-100 has not been found.
④ Reset Switch It is used when ZIG-100 is rebooted.
⑤ Power Connector The power of 5V is needed to operate ZIG2Serial.  The user can supply power using this connector. If it is connected to USB2Dynamixel, a separate power supply is not necessary.
⑥ RS232 Connector It can be connected to RS-232 port of PC.

How to Use

Connecting to PC

There is RS-232 Connector for communication in PC; it is called serial port.  RS-232 connector of ZIG2Serial can be connected here.  If there is no serial port in PC, USB2Serial converter must be purchased..

 

Supplying Power

The power of 5V mus be supplied to operate ZIG2Serial.  The power can be supplied using the power connector of ZIG2Serial.  The cable for power connection must be made referring to the pin arrangement as below.

Zero ohm resistor must be attached or connected by soldering on the location of resistor for external power to supply the external power.

 

If USB2Dynamixel products of Robotis are used, those products can be used without supplying separate power since the power is supplied from USB2Dynamixel to  ZIG2Serial.  However, if the resistor for external power connection is connected, please use after removing the resistor!

 

Connecting ZIG-100

Please be careful with the direction of ZIG-100 when it is connected.

 

 

Select Broadcast Channel

You can select the Broadcast channel on the ZIG-100 by using the CHANNEL_SEL 1,2 pins.

The connection status must be changed to select the channel on the Zig2Serial.

Precaution : When the ZIG-100 is mounted on the CM-5, the broadcast channel to set at #1.
If the channel of the Zig2Serial is set differently, it will communicate with the CM-5 in broadcast communication mode
