Hi all

We now have the DONGBU HerkuleX Servos up for Sale on our online store.

You can check all the details here http://robosavvy.com/store/advanced_sea ... rs&x=0&y=0

We've had these servos in our Lab for over a year now. We became involved with Dongbu very early, while they were still finalizing many important features (software, framesets, catalogs, etc).
We're happy to say we've now come to a point where everything is ready and there is a wide range of accessories available.

The servos themselves are very impressive both in terms of Cost per kgf.cm and also by their very advanced firmware.

If you have some time it worth checking out the novelty that these servos bring (expecially the firmware)
The Servo Manual (available on the product pages) gives a very good insight on both what the servos can do and also how Speed and Acceleration is managed in these (and other) servos.

These are the only servos where one can define in Great Detail the servo behavior while it's moving (define the speed and acceleration curves, acceleration and speed limits, limit the pwm on the motor and a lot more parameters).

We'll have to see how this can translate into real life results but these are for sure unique features.


They also have Full Duplex UART at TTL level which makes it much easier to communicate with the Servos from any MCU.

The Half Duplex Dynamixel bus poses some challenges if you want to interface them directly to a BeagleBoard or Gumstix; these servos with Full Duplex should make everything much easier.

We're still adding more of the DONGBU Portfolio to our store, This is just the starting point so stay tuned ;)

Regards
Pedro
