Now, you should make sure that sac-32 VSA and your computer in general have the com port that you are using set to the same Baud Rate. You will get a dialog box. You ssx-32 see a small green light flash on the Lynxmotion SSC board when any serial communication is present.
However, if your computer does not have a serial output, you may need a USB to Serial adapter shown below:. We will assume that you have a standard computer with one serial output which is called by default, “COM1”. Now, open up VSA.
The servos will use what they need of that power up to the total available power of the supply. You have the option to turn off power to the servos while not in use thereby extending the life of the servos. A note about current. The good news is that you do not need 3 separate power supplies.
They look like this:. Your board will come with jumpers on, but you may not want to keep them all in place. Press ok to close the dialog. Click on the tab at the top of the Properties box that says, “Port Settings”. Lnyxmotion should run RoboRealm and start processing images.
When disabled the servo will not be sent any further position commands. Analog will set a number between 0 and depending on the voltage across the pins. If it is not, double click on the number it is set for and select from the drop down menu that appears. If you do see a flashing light with no movement check the channel you plugged the servo into. Click on the previous link. This is used to automatically change the servo values based on your VBScript using the SetVariable function or Plugin based program.
However, now I would like it to do cool st Note that is the default and should not be changed unless required. You can have too much voltage, but not too much current. There is no such thing as too much current. Now it should look like the picture below:.
Lynxmotion SSC Tutorial
They are VS inputs which stands for “Voltage to Servos” The VS1 input controls all the servos in the row across the bottom of the board. This setup as it is assumes that you are using 2 separate power supplies. If it does not, change it so that it does, and click OK. I will talk about the advantages and disadvantages a little later on, but for now, let’s assume you want to run the whole thing SSC board AND all the servos from one single power supply.
Note that if you set a servo channel to be positioned using a variable’s value you will lose manual control over that servo. Lynxmotion loses communication with roborealm I’m having an issue with the lynxmotion SSC. During this movement the servo variable within RoboRealm will be updated to reflect the current position of the servo. To make it easier than looking at the actual board, here is a diagram of the board with NO jumpers in place:.
Again, make sure that COM1 is set to the rate you see above Note the channel number which corresponds to the channel number of the Lynxmotion SSC board. Note that once a new value is sent to the board the old position and speed will be overwritten. You would need a power supply that can provide 6. Only eight channels are visible at any time. They should come like that. First thing is to be sure that the Baud Rate is set correctly.
Lynxmotion Robot Guys and Girls I am happy with Roborealm, its great and i have happily processed my blue ball from Changing the variable value, however, will change that servo’s position.
Click on each of the modules to see how we lynxmottion this task. Whichever way it says it, those are the jumpers we are talking about.
Refer to the picture below:. Everyone leaves that party happy! In some cases, it can even drag down the power supply and cause it to overheat.
Ensure that the Lynxmotion servo controller board is connected to the computer. Digital will set a one or zero. The servo controller supports up to 32 channels of 1uS resolution. I need to repeat that the servos we use are meant lynxmotoon run on a voltage between 4. If you find a good deal it may cost less than two ssc-32 voltage power supplies.
Rate – specify the speed at which your servos should move at.
