Serial

what if I wanted to control ten of those cheap dynamixel copies.(16A) and hook them all up in a serial fashion. Would I have enough serial ports on the EZB-4? I would have to assign an ID. The way they are setup, it looks like I could control them off of a single serial port. Suggestions?

D5. Connect to D5 a string them along. You only need this port.

If I hook them to D5, can I hook all ten of them? Would I set up Virtual ports?


Thanks!

Yes correct...all of them on just the one port (D5) with all 12 having different Ids and choosing them with the Virtual ports.

I haven't bought them yet. I am just doing research. But, the look like the Dynimixel A-1.
