*The DYNAMIXEL Starter Set does not include DYNAMIXEL unit.
*Please select the right DYNAMIXEL for your project by referring to our DYNAMIXEL Selection Guide (Hyperlink)
The DYNAMIXEL Starter Set is ROBOTIS` recommendation for all first-time users of DYNAMIXEL smart actuators and for any users looking for a method to connect their DYNAMIXEL to a PC.
With the DYNAMIXEL Starter Set, users can :
- Connect and configure DYNAMIXELs using ROBOTIS software
- Provide power and communication to connected DYNAMIXELs
- Operate DYNAMIXELs using ROBOTIS programming libraries/resources
(ROS, C/C++/C#, MATLAB, LabVIEW, Python, Java)
- Test and program DYNAMIXEL firmware features
- Update and Recover DYNAMIXEL firmware
- Perform Self-Diagnosis and Troubleshooting
- Control DYNAMIXEL directly from a USB port on any computer/SBC (including Raspberry Pi)
U2D2 is a compact USB communication converter that enables users to control and operate DYNAMIXEL with a computer.
It is smaller than the previous model and has mount holes to make it easier to install on robots. It uses a micro-B USB cable to connect to the user`s computer and prevents damage of the USB terminals. It has both 3-pin connectors for TTL communication and 4-pin connectors for RS-485 communication to allow universal compatibility with any model of DYNAMIXEL.
U2D2 supports direct connections to/from UART as well. To connect DYNAMIXEL models using Molex connectors, ROBOTIS offers "convertible" cables with one Molex and one JST connector compatible with U2D2.
U2D2 Power Hub Board combines with the U2D2 to supply a variety of external power sources to DYNAMIXEL units.
The board is capable of supplying power to all models of DYNAMIXEL using the SMPS port, terminal block, and 2-pin power connector. The board has holes to attach the U2D2 module and it can be attached using plastic rivets supplied in the package. It provides a power switch for a convenient method to turn power ON/OFF.

All DYNAMIXEL smart actuators are compatible with the DYNAMIXEL Starter Set.
To connect a DYNAMIXEL to the Starter Set, you will need one of the cables included in the package with your DYNAMIXEL.
When using the terminal block, please pay attention to the polarity when using external power.
*Various pins are exposed behind the board. We recommend users to assemble and use the included supports with the board.
