- VDD : Supply Voltage (It is equal to the voltage of battery)
- DATA : Data Transmission Pin
WARNING: Check the pinout! The pinout of Dynamixel can differ from the pinout of connector manufacturer.
The power is applied if the battery is connected to battery socket of CM-530 or if the power switch is set to ON after connecting SMPS to power jack socket. If the power is impressed, Power LED is turned on and one of the Mode Display LEDs flickers.
- Turning the power on : The power is turned on by moving the switch from OFF to ON.
※ If the power is not turned on in spite of moving the switch to ON, the batteries may have been discharged.
Pleaser refer to Charging to recharge, or connect the power using SMPS.
- Start : Move to PLAY using Mode Button to operate robots. Press START Button to execute when the LED on PLAY flickers.
※ If START button is pressed, the LED on PLAY is not supposed to be flickering any more; that is the normal status of the execution.
- End : If you want to stop the executed operations, press MODE Button to get back to waiting mode stauts, or turn OFF the power using Power Switch.
- It is used to control Dynamixel and the peripherals, and it can connect Dynamixel(AX/MX Dynamixel… etc.) and various parts of OLLO(Touch Sensor, LED Module, IR Sensor etc.).
Specific motions can be edited and saved through RoboPlus Motion. The saved motion (mtn file) can be always executed by RoboPlus Task, and also the motions of each part can be controlled by writing the task codes for control.
- RoboPlus Motion
- RoboPlus Task
- RoboPlus Manager
- Embedded C
The controller of CM-530 can be controlled in C language. Please refer to Embedded C for more information.
PC Link(Serial Cable) of CM-530 and Serial Port of PC must be connected using download cable to communication with PC. If you want to communicate with PC on the laptop without serial port, you can communicate with PC using USB2Dynamixel.
You may obtain Lithium polymer batteries from www.robotis-shop-en.com.
If the robot alarm sounds off during operations then recharge the battery.
During charging the charger’s red LED turns on. When complete the green LED turns on.
- Take the battery out
- Connect the charger
Charging(Red LED), Complete(Green LED)
You can connect the robot to an external power source through SMPS.
The battery is equipped with a connector to charge the battery and another to move the robot
Charging Time and Battery Life/Operating
- When fully discharged : 1~1.5 hour
- Leaving the battery fully discharged for too long may reduce its lifespan drastically.
- Time to charge the battery depends on the status of the battery(If the charging time or battery life becomes too short, you may need to replace your battery).
- Do NOT keep the battery connected with a robot or a charger.
- If you will not use the battery for a long time from now on, please keep it HALF-CHARGED.
- Do NOT put the battery with an environment with high temperature or humidity.
The fuse in the CM-510/CM-530 prevents it from overloading,which can damage the circuit.
If the CM-510/CM-530 does not turn on with the battery but turns on when connected to the SMPS, replace your fuse.
※ The size of the fuse is shown below. Use a 125V/5A~10A fuse.
※ How to replace the fuse
Find the fuse on the back of the CM-510/CM-530.
Use a pincette to replace the fuse with a new one.
