Hey,

I'm looking for an alternative to the USB2Dynamixel as it is big and expensive. I actually need an USB2TTL converter to communicate with the MX28T. I found this xevelabs.COM/doku.php?id=product:usb2ax:specs (CHANGE COM TO com), but it's not available in Germany and also not cheap.

I want to get this converter (nodna.DE/USB2RS232-USBtoRS232-USB-to-serial) (CHANGE DE TO de), but I´m not sure if that also works:roll:. Thanks for your advice!

If that does not work, anybody who's using an alternative converter for this purpose?

Hey :) It is indeed not as cheap as I would like it to be. Right now you can buy it directly from me (as long as it is not listed on my distributors' website), send me a MP.
EDIT: It's now available at Robosavvy, no direct sales anymore.

Not sure either it would work. It seems plausible but you would have to be careful with the power cables: VCC is connected to USB power and plugging this directly in a Dynamixel bus would fry your USB port or motherboard. Other than that, it might be worth a try.
