Software Reset on ssc-16

Hello, is it possible to reset the ssc-16 from software (sending it a string of characters) or hardware (setting a db9 pin high/low)?? I’d like to be able to reset a flashing red led without cycling the power.

Thank you…


Unfortunately, the 16-servo controller does not have the reset capability you’re looking for. You can access hardware reset by connecting to pin 1 of the microcontroller (by soldering to the pad); if you need RS-232 compatibility, you can use the same transistor inverter circuit used on the receive line (see the schematic on page 15). The reset line already has a pull-up resistor on it, so you just need the transistor and the resistor to its base.
