CM-2 Plus

  1. In Linux, needed a udev rule to allow permissions to read/write the USB Serial port:
    1. /etc/udev/rules.d/10-ftdi.rules:
    2. MODE="0777"
  2. Put the CM-2+ in Manager Mode (1st blinking light)
  3. Open the serial port at 57600 baud
    1. import serial
    2. ser = serial.Serial("/dev/ttyUSB0", 57600)
  4. The CM-2+ will use its own UART to talk to the Dynamixel Bus at a Baud rate of 1000000
  5. send it a "t" and return and newline to put into "toss mode"
    1. ser.setTimeout(.1)
    2. ser.write("t\r\n")

Now you are ready to send it byte commands.
