Description

  • Three control methods
  • 6-channel USB servo controller
  • Pulse rate configurable from 33 to 100 Hz
  • Operating voltage: 5-16 V

The Pololu Micro Maestro 6-channel USB Servo Controller (Assembled) is the first of Pololu's second-generation USB servo controllers. The Pololu Micro Maestro is a highly versatile six-channel servo controller and general I/O board in a highly compact (0.85"×1.20") package. The extremely accurate, high-resolution servo pulses have a jitter of less than 200 ns, making this servo controller well suited for high-precision animatronics, and built-in speed and acceleration control make it easy to achieve smooth, seamless movements without requiring the control source to constantly compute and stream intermediate position updates to the Micro Maestro.

Features:

  • Three control methods: USB, TTL (5V) serial and internal scripting
  • 0.25µs output pulse width resolution (corresponds to approximately 0.025° for a typical servo, which is beyond what the servo could resolve)
  • Pulse rate configurable from 33 to 100 Hz
  • Wide pulse range of 64 to 3280 µs when using all six servos with a pulse rate of 50 Hz
  • Individual speed and acceleration control for each channel
  • Channels can also be used as general-purpose digital outputs or analog inputs
  • A simple scripting language lets you program the controller to perform complex actions even after its USB and serial connections are removed

Free configuration and control application for Windows makes it easy to:

  - Configure and test your controller
  - Create, run and save sequences of servo movements for animatronics and walking robots
  - Write, step through and run scripts stored in the servo controller

  • Virtual COM port makes it easy to create custom applications to send serial commands via USB to the controller

TTL serial features:

   - Supports 300 - 250000 kbps in fixed-baud mode
   - Supports 300 - 115200 kbps in auto detect-baud mode
   - Simultaneously supports the Pololu protocol, which gives access to advanced functionality, and the simpler Scott Edwards MiniSSC II protocol (there is no need to configure the device for a particular protocol mode)
    - Can be daisy-chained with other Pololu servo and motor controllers using a single serial transmit line

  • Board can be powered off of USB or a 5-16V battery, and it makes the regulated 5V available to the user
  • Compact size of 0.85"×1.20" (2.16×3.05 cm) and light weight of 0.17 oz (4.8 g)
  • Upgradable firmware
  • Size: 0.85" x 1.20"
  • Weight: 4.8 g
  • Baud: 300-250000 bps (Auto detect works from 300-115200 bps)
  • Minimum operating voltage: 5V
  • Maximum operating voltage: 16V
  • Supply current: 20 mA (The exact amount depends on how many LEDs are on and whether the device is connected to USB)
  • Partial kit: N

Very good card

The advantage is that we can do the tests for development on PC, then switch to Arduino card or others. The pc software is very well designed. Compact card, beautiful finish. Well-supplied documentation. A very good summary of Pololu products that exceeds all others.

Nice product,fast to use

Warning ! This 6-channel soft doesn't allow global variable with peek/poke. This is a serious limit for structured programmation. But a simple product to use and very fast development. I use it for servos test with some potentiometers for offset, amplitude, frequency, profil, mode and a switch for soft on/off.

Easy to use

Simple product, very user friendly and ideal for beginners. Not suitable with more sophisticated assembly (taking input from an analogic captor like photocell).

Quick and easy to use out of the box.

I use these controllers for quick development, servo testing and small projects. The hardware is very nice and the software could use few more features, especially in sequence editing. Serial protocol is fairly easy with some decent examples in python.
