Micro Maestro USB Servo Controller
Anonymous  [2 posts]

I have a Micro Maestro 6 channel USB Servo Controller and added the Pololu module into my project but when I open the module is indicates "Connected" but doesn't specify the Maestro's serial and the servos won't move.  I'm guessing it's not really connected.

Can anyone point in the right direction?

Check fist using Pololu's own applications that the servo works. That ensures that they didn't just update the protocol without us knowing. If things work out this means that all the connections are good and that the hardware is powered correctly. Then give things a try in RR. You should be able to manually move the servo bars and see the servos move. If they still do not, check that the lights blink on the Maestro when you move the bar. If they don't then you probably don't have a good serial connection. Check the Connection selection in that module.

Figured it out.

For future people...

Make sure your drivers and program matches for 32 or 64 bit.

I had the 32 bit drivers for the servo controller and was running the 64 bit version of Robrealms.

Once I switched to the 32 bit version of Robrealms it worked fine.

Great to hear you got things working! Thanks for the tip!
