MX-106R Master/Slave configuartion
2018-02-08 06:09:07 anikal

Hi Robotis community, 

I have more question regarding connecting MX-106 in master/slave. What commands get carried over from the master to slave? Is it only the position, velocity and acceleration? For example if I want to enable the torque bit on the motors, should I be having two instruction packets or one? What about position and other instructions? 

Thank you for the amazing and fast response

Hi Anis,

When two MX-106(Master & Slave) are connected with a Synchronization Cable, the slave Dynamixel will be operated by PWM signal.

Therefore, only Master Dynamixel will receive an instruction packet and deliver the PWM signal to the Slave Dynamixel via the sync cable.

Please refer to Drive Mode section of the eManual.

Hi Will,

Thank you for your prompt reply. I completely understand that, my question is in relation to setting up the torque bit for this configuration. If I want to set up the torque bit to enable the motor, I need two instruction packets. Is that right? 

Thank you again

When using two MX-106 as Master and Slave mode, the slave mode Dynamixel does not need to be torque enabled as Slave will be always ready to move with the PWM input signal.

Did I correctly understand your question? Please let me know if I missed it again :)
