ASCII Commands and Daisy chained motor controllers

I’ve looked at the ASCII commands here (, but is it possible to reference different motor controllers using ASCII commands when you have 2 motor controllers daisy chained?


No; the daisy chaining feature of the Simple Motor Controller (SMC) can only be used with two serial sub-protocols: the Pololu protocol and the Mini SSC protocol. These sub-protocols let you send commands to a particular device number, which is set in the “Input Settings” tab of the Pololu Simple Motor Control Center, and are only available in binary serial mode. If you have not already done so, I suggest reading through the “Daisy Chaining” section of the Simple Motor Contoller user’s guide before continuing.
