  • The USB is powered by your PC and you dont need to power it independent of a PC. You cannot use the dongle unless it is communicating with a PC as the drivers are loaded onto a pc or controller before you can use the dongle.

  • Both work well as one is a virtual serial and the other an actual serial port. The only thing that separates the two is dependent on what the ports capability are with respect to seed, buffer and error correction. These capabilities are what the FTDO or Serial driver currently supports. I have also found the bigger the buffer the better to ensure no overflow which is critical if you are receiving large amounts of data

  • Can this unit work with 56k baud rate? If not ata ll canwe include that baud rate in the next release of the firmware? Very nice product makes it easy for those who dont have the time to make a library

  • Hi Maestro/Pololu Developers,

    Please see our Developer Tool which can used as shareware to try at http://www.progwhiz.com/maestro.html

    Some of the features are: 1) HUD to use the 6 port or 12port Maestro quickly 2) Configure jostick to map to any servo port 3) Higher level scripting to manage remotely on the fly no need to preprogram. Can also call internal scipts see manual at http://www.progwhiz.com/files/External_Scripting_Commands.pdf 4) Ability to define triggers based on sensor input

    Please do have fun exploring the possibilities.

    Regards

    Mark

  • Hi All,

    Why when you got back 400+ units you reduced the limit to purchase from 10 to 5 per customer?

  • Hi All,

    Is it possible to use this sensor to measure the input voltage being supplied to the controller to which this sensor is attached? Or is this only used to measure voltage/current on everythign but the power source to allow the sensor to operate?

    Thanks

No public wish lists :(
