I’m interested in purchasing some of the Micro Maestro Servo Controllers. I see that they have a USB serial interface.
Are there any NI Labview Instrument Drivers for the servo controller?
If not, is there a programming manual for sending commands over the VISA resource instead of using the Maestro Control Center?
Take a look at this thread:
Hi, I work in a university physics lab and I’m trying to control a series of servo motors with the Mini Maestro 12-channel board, and I have working LabVIEW code written for the Micro Maestro 6-channel board. It doesn’t seem to be working at all with my board, though I’m using the right ports and the servos have been tested with other boards. What changed between the Mini and Micro Maestro boards, that I should account for when modifying the code?
Thanks for any help!
You can also probably rip out what you need from this code:
Servo Distribution.zip (2.1 MB)
Servo Motion Module.vi is the top level. There is a VISA version and a dotNET (uses the native USB) version. The VISA version is probably the one to start with (then you can still use Maestro Control Center simultaneously). Also make sure you have set the Serial Settings in Control Center (I use USB Chained).
