Hello, i am planning to use an XM540-W270 and an XM430-W350 in order to build an embedded system using either a dynamixel shield or dynamixel shield mkr.
As i’m quite new to robotics i was wondering if i need an independent power source for my arduino if i power the shield by its power input connector or if the shield is able to power the arduino which would make a second battery redundant. My guess is that i would need to use a second battery since disconnecting the power jumper would separate the circuits, but i’m not quite sure.
Am i right in my assumptions?
I’m looking forward to any help
