PC Link(Serial Cable) of CM-5 and Serial Port of PC must be connected using serial cable to communicaiton with PC. If you want to use Bioloid on the laptop without a serial port, you can communicate with PC using USB2Dynamixel. (The USB2Dynamixel is sold separately.)
ZIG-100 Wireless Communication Module can be connected to CM-5.
To move a robot when it is not connected with SMPS, you have to use a battery. If the battery is discharged, please use by charging it according to following procedures.
Connect SMSPS to CM-5.
Turn on the CM-5 Power and press the
Note While the CM-5 is being charged, the power LED blinks. The speed of blinking shows how much it is left before finishing the charging. It will be more faster as it completes the charging. Once the charging is done, it will blink for every 2 seconds.

If the fuse is disconnected, followings will happen.
- Can turn on the power of CM-5 with SMPS only.
- The LED doesn’t blink even when you press the U button for charging.
