Paul and All–
I am a new Maestro user. I THINK there is an issue with the
maestro.pdf: The lower left text block on page 33 is over-typed as is the lower left text block on page 62 . . . or it could be a problem on my end (nah!).
Is there a corrected version I’ve missed? Or, if it IS my problem, would you please post the two text blocks mentioned above?
Sorry about the problem with the PDF. We will get that corrected soon! The text should read as follows:
USB Dual Port: In this mode, the Command Port can be used to send commands to the Maestro and receive responses from it. The baud rate you set in your terminal program when opening the Command Port is irrelevant. The TTL Port can be used to send bytes on the TX line and receive bytes on the RX line. The baud rate you set in your terminal program when opening the TTL Port determines the baud rate used to receive and send bytes on RX and TX. This allows your computer to control the Maestro and simultaneously use the RX and TX lines as a general purpose serial port that can communicate with other types of TTL serial devices.
Thank you very much!
I am a rank servo-newbie, so that little piece of text is (was) important to me. I am now deeply engaged in the servo blog.
By the way, that user’s guide is also available in the form of a
web document on our site, which you might find easier to navigate.
