This is my first post in this forum.
I met Pololu Servo Controller through my research on Google and I think its a great device.
My main idea is to control a mechanical system consisting of DC motors and servos with a computer (Windows netbook).
Since I have a good knowledge of Visual Basics 6, the movement control center should be managed by an application written in this language. I’m reading with pleasure the documentation of “Maestro Servo Controller User’s Guide” but before buy this product I need to know some basic things:
Can I receive and transmit data between VB6 and “Maestro Servo Controller” ?
Is simple to manage communication? I mean just use MSCom ?
Using simple analog/digital sensors (such switches or variable resistors), can I read the values in VB6?
Can I use “Maestro Servo Controller” to control the “continuous rotation servo” speed, direction and acceleration, or I have to use DC motors and “Maestro Motor Controller”?
In the second case, can I connect “Master Servo Controller” to “Maestro Motor Controller” and control them simultaneously using a single USB connection, and Visual Basic 6?
I hope an positive answer.
Any suggestion is appreciated
