In the project, I will have a camera to overlook four differen This is used to automatically change the servo values based on your VBScript using the SetVariable function or Plugin based program. All your servos AND the board itself.
This setup as it is assumes that you are using 2 separate power supplies. You will likely have other device names in there and maybe in a different order, but that is not important right now.
Lynxmotion loses communication with roborealm I’m having an issue with the lynxmotion SSC. Scroll Bars – After specifying the COM port and speed you should be able to move your servos by dragging the sliders to the right or left or by specifying a number within the current value text box in the Servo Config area. As shown above, make sure that the “Bits per second” line says The VS2 input controls all the servos across the top of the board.
First, make sure your power supply has an output with enough current amps to run everything. The power simply won’t be there. However, if your computer does not have a serial output, you may need a USB to Serial adapter shown below:. It is hard to find a 4. The board also supports 4 digital or analog inputs for adding additional sensors to your robotic projects. Refer to the picture below:. Note that once a new value is sent to the board the old position and speed will be overwritten.
Try waving your hand in front of the camera. If you do see a flashing light with no movement check the channel you plugged the servo into. In the same example, if you had a power supply that has an output of 5 VDC at 50 amps, your same 12 servos would use 6 of those 50 amps leaving you with 44 amps left over to run additional servos or whatever else.
This stands for Voltage Logic, or the power that will run the actual board itself and power up the chips on the board. Let’s say that you want to simplify things a bit and only use ONE power supply for everything. The Baud Rate is determined by the jumpers in the center of the board in the area labeled “10”.
Now it should look like the picture below:. I need to repeat that the servos we use are meant to run on a voltage between 4. Baud Rate – Select the appropriate baud rate. First, click the “Start” button on your computer desktop. If it is not, double click on the number it is set for and select from the drop down menu that appears.
You have the option to turn off power to the servos while not in use thereby extending the life of the servos. The good news is that you do not need 3 separate power supplies. To make it easier than looking at the actual board, here is a diagram of the board with NO jumpers in place:.
Now, you should make sure that both VSA and your computer in general have the com port that you are using set to the same Baud Rate. This can be used as an additional precaution in case your servos cannot physically move beyond certain limits. Digital will set a one or zero. With the jumpers in this position, your board will be set for a Baud Rate ofwhich is what the computer should expect. In any case, let me show you how you would hook up your 6VDC power supply to the SSC board to run everything from this one supply.
In some cases, it can even drag down the power supply and cause it to overheat. Let’s check your computer’s Com Port first.
Click on the tab at the top of the Properties box that says, “Port Settings”. Lynx,otion 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. It has a jack for a Serial cable.
Your board will come with jumpers on, but you may not want to keep them all in place. All it does is tie together all the servo outputs on the board to run from a single power supply. You should see a box that looks like this:.
It’s all in how you set the jumpers and what kind of power supply you use. Click on the previous link. They should come like that.

Otherwise, your computer will lnxmotion talk to the board. This set of jumpers is simple. As the servo rate can be changed the servo may not immediately adjust its position to the final destination but slowly move towards it. Ensure that the Lynxmotion servo controller board is connected to the computer. This should run RoboRealm and start processing images. In the center on the left is VL and is labeled Number 4.
Now, open up VSA.
