Sending servo OFF command on the fly?

Hello people!
I have one Pololu mini maestro and one micro maestro servo controller.
They work great and I control the servo positions via USB using the compact protocol (virtual serial port).

My question is, is it possible to disable/enable a specific servo (stop/start sending pulses) on the fly?
I.e. I would like to do exactly what the “enabled” checkbox does in the Maestro control center but in my own software.



Yes, it is. A command to send the servo to position 0 will turn the servo channel off. Commands to move to any other position turn the servo channel back on.


Excellent, thank you very much!
