    i have the 24 port version of the servo control board and cannot find any software or info on it so im guessing it cant be to different from the 32 port board made by the same people but i have so problems and a question help will be much appreciated
    i need some help here i got the software from the link im on windows 7 OS and i cannot find how to tell it what port to use to assess the servo control board.
    also how do you connect this control board to an arduino i cant find an adapter i am trying to run 8 micro servos off of the board i currently have a 4.5v power supply linked to support them

    thank you for any help

    I’ve got the 16 channel version of this controller. I’m trying to get it to work with Linux (Ubuntu 12.10) but I’m not really sure where to start. Any ideas?

    I’m fairly good with python. I managed to get the controller and some servos setup under windows using pyserial. I’m trying to get it running in conjunction with a package called motion, hence the desire to get it working on Ubuntu. I can’t see the controller showing up anywhere in /dev, does that mean I need to get a driver and if so any idea where I could find one?

    how are you powering the robot? i am using a 6V but the robot is drawing current >2 Amps.
    Thank you

    hi, I have connected my arduino mega adk board to the servo controller with RX-TX and common ground. also, I could see the command sent through arduino console – serial monitor. but, the servo has no response. LED would not flash on the servo controller. so i think the servo controller is not receiving. could you foresee what might the problem?

    thanks

    I`ve just built my first hexapod but it came with a torobot ssc32
    contoll board and a ps2 wireless controller but no manuals on how to set it up. can anyone please guide me? thanks.

      Hi Derek,
      I have the same problem…have you seen this document? http://www.torobot.com/down/usc32_ps2.pdf (translate into english)
      I have made ​​connections as explained there but I do not understand how it works…

    any one using the lynxmotoin hexapod?

  11. LEE TAK CHUN

    HALO , I would like to know why you need extra connect the Arduino board to control the motor

    Hi at all!
    I have this board. I connected the PS2 wireless receiver with 7 wires to the board but i don’t understand how interface it…the software is unclear to explain it…someone has successful? This controller board is good and cheap but there is very little documentation…help me please!

  13. Giuseppe

    Yes of course. But in the Torobot documentations (poor…) they explain to create the action groups manually and then, like explain in this document: http://www.torobot.com/down/usc32_ps2.pdf (to translate into english) the software of the board recognizes the PS2 controller…we must associate the action groups with the corresponding keys into gamepad…but I have not figured out how to…if you take a look do you can help me to understand?
    Thank you

    Hello,
    I just got a torobot board like that one, and after connecting all the motors every time I move a servo a buzz came from the servo and never stops, did that happen to you also? do you know what can be the reason?

  15. Giuseppe

    Hello admin,
    what do you mean with “It even has some pre programmed actions to control a quadpod and hexapod robot”?

  16. Darren Cruse

    Hi guys glad to see this site I bought the hexapod kit and torobot servo controller off ebay and have really struggled to find info…

    fwiw http://www.torobot.com has been my best source up till now.

    I also found there’s a node.js npm module called “torque” that supports the torobot controller I tried it yesterday and I was able to move some servos with it…

    Has anybody gotten a bluetooth serial adapter working with the torobot controller btw? I have this one but I tried yesterday and it didn’t work – I had not reversed rx and tx maybe that was my problem?

    Hi Darren,
    you know how to use the Rios program for the board well?
    You make a sequence for the walking of the hexapod? I don’t understand well the simmetry interface (click option)…

    HI to all
    Did you manage to get the Ps2 controller connected and working i have one of these boards and have got it working over bluetooth but tried it with the ps2 and dont understand the software can anybody help.

      Hello,
      I have the same problem…Also, the board do not connect more with my pc via usb…error of port number and baud rate…I’ve never had problems before…someone knows a reset on the board?
      Many thanks

    I bought a plate of these Torobot 32 control servo.
    I do not know how to connect the control board on the ps2!
    I wonder if you can help me?
    may be using an Arduino or otherwise!
    I thank the group des now!

  20. GuiCoelho4522

    So I think I explained wrong!
    Actually i want to connect a (PlayStation 2) Control Aboard!
    The manual does not help much!
    And so the plate and ToRobot control software + Ps2 Controller!
