Hello folks. I am experiencing a situation with the XMG-996R servos (for a robotic arm) on Micro Maestro 6 channel controller. When powered up, maestro recognizes both servos. Maestro works well with only one 996Rservo. However, when I connect a second 996R servo and try to set the motion for the 996R servo in channel 0, the other 996R servo in channel 1 starts to move violently and uncontrolled and then moves to one of the extreme travel and locks in place doing a growling/humming sound. After that, neither 996R servos can be controlled with maestro. I have to disconnect power and reset the servos. Then when powered up and I try to set the movements they do it all over again. I’m powering the micro and servos with 5V 1A from a wall adapter. I jumped the VIN and the servo power in the Micro as per instructions, therefore using one power supply to run both the maestro and the servos. The maestro program doesn’t give me any error code.
At this point I have no clue why are these servos behaving like that. I will greatly appreciate feedback and info on possible causes and solutions. Many thanks.
