WARNING: To enhance user safety and to prevent proprietary risk or damage, be sure to check the pinout installed on DYNAMIXEL and the board. The Pinout of DYNAMIXEL may differ depending on a manufacturer of connector.

Connecting Power

The power is applied if the battery is connected to battery socket of CM-510 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.

How to Operate

Connect to PC

PC Link(Serial Cable) of CM-510 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.

Wireless Communication

ZIG-110 Wireless Communication Module can be connected to CM-510.


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.

  1. Take the battery out

  1. Connect the charger

  1. Charge

Charging Time and Battery Life/Operating

Charging Time


  1. Do NOT keep the battery connected with a robot or a charger.
  2. If you will not use the battery for a long time from now on, please keep it HALF-CHARGED.
  3. Do NOT put the battery with an environment with high temperature or humidity.

Fuse Replacement

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

  1. Find the fuse on the back of the CM-510/CM-530.

  2. Use a pincette to replace the fuse with a new one.
