50Ω Pot: (Original supplier – digikey –  no longer carries. Seems a suitable replacement) http://www.alliedelec.com/search/productdetail.aspx?sku=70154169&mkwid=oG1OAbKF&pcrid=30980760979&gclid=CjwKEAiAzIWkBRDO5LDEn8G1nAUSJADnHq_584kKJ4jVWKgRL9WPrGQz2S2SFwqIzsTTCWNwNVFf6RoC9aLw_wcB#tab=specs

***All materials for the custom circuitry can be found in the Sears circuits lab except for the 350Ω resistors and the 50Ω ten-turn pot. A 350Ω(ish) resistor can be made from series combining a 320Ω and a 32Ω resistor which are available in the lab.

***THESE DO NOT COME OUT OF THE BOX READY TO USE, THEY ALSO REQUIRE HORNS (SEE BELOW)

***It is important to purchase MX-64T models for MantisBot, NOT MX-64R models (won’t TTL chain)

Frames for AX-12A – These were all taken from a bioloid kit that I found in the lab. When I left, there was still a reasonably large collection.

USB to Dynamixel – http://www.trossenrobotics.com/robotis-bioloid-usb2dynamixel.aspx

This is used for using the Dynawizard RoboPlus tool. It isoverpriced for only serving this singular purpose. We had one floating around the lab when I left, so see if you can find it before buying one. Matt Klein is the original owner.

Repairs

     Arbotix-M

The Arbotix-M boards frequently stop working. You will know this has happened when the board stops allowing sketches to be uploaded and gives an error message mentioning “avrdude.” In the past we have successfully exchanged malfunctioning boards for working ones. However, currently there are 6 spare boards so it is unlikely we will need to again in the near future. In any case, one must call  Trossen Robotics at (877) 898-1005 to obtain an RMA number. Then the form below should be filled out and sent in with the faulty boards to the address on the form.

     Dynamixels

Faulty servos need to be sent directly back to Robotis, even if they were purchased through Trossen. The first step is filling out the Robotis RMA request form (below) and emailing it to cs@robotis.com. Then (usually around a week later) they will contact you with further instructions on where to send them. Remember to include a printed copy of the RMA request form in the box with the defective servos.
