NI Dynamixel API with DXL Pro +
2019-07-09 01:56:14 cyberobotics


I am using "NI Dynamixel API" for LabVIEW for the Dynamixel Pro series and I was wondering if I can use the same API with "Dynamixel Pro Plus" series without manipulating the actual library?  Please advise.  Thanks.

Since "NI Dynamixel API" is not an official ROBOTIS library, I do not have any information about it.

However, if the library is designed for DYNAMIXEL PRO series, most likely it will not compatible with PRO Plus series.

If the library is updated to support PRO(A) series, it might be used for PRO Plus series because PRO(A) and PRO Plus have an identical control table address.

Thank you.

Hi Willson,

Thanks for the reply.  May I know what is the different between DXL Pro and Pro(A)?  How can we tell it is a Pro(A) DXL?

PRO(A) and PRO have the exact same hardware.

PRO can be upgraded to PRO(A) by firmware recovery from R+Manager 2.0 or DYNAMIXEL Wizard 2.0.

You can consider PRO(A) firmware as a bridge to switch to PRO Plus from PRO series.

Thank you.
