I have 13hr! please help
« on: March 14, 2010, 12:18:20 PM »
Hi  :)

I just bought my axon1 board and I read a lot about it

However Iím still confused how and from where should I start to understand the language of the codes?

And I have 1 more question about the board:

Can I drive 12 servos that drains 900mA as max for each (AX-12 from Bioloid) through the board?
Because I read in the Axon data sheet that it can handle at least 5A on each power bus!!

After 13 hrís I have to convene my team that Axon board was the right choice for our humanoid robot !!!

Just download the example code and play around with it. Also, look at the Axon II and the WebbotLib software - its 99% compatible with the original Axon.



edit: I said something dumb, so I deleted it :P

The AX12 servos are all driven over a single uart in half duplex (I know coz I'm in the process of adding them to WebbotLib!).
The servos all interconnect (ie daisy chained).
So the power to the servos can even come from a different power source (battery) than the Axon. So the Axon PCB current limitations are irrelevant.

Thanks everybody for your replay

Iím happy that my Axon has a very active support center

Iíll be asking a lot of stooped questions since I donít understand a lot of things
I donít understand all what I read on the web and in data sheets as well!

Maybe because English is not my first language
But I will successes and build my humanoid robot
