Since the XL330s came out a few months ago, I had been interested in using the new XL330s together with the XL430s of the ENGINEER kits. But the XL330s use 5V and the XL430s use 11.1-12V, and I have only 1 U2D2 and 1 U2D2 Power Hub! However, I do have “older” BIOLOID hardware that can be adapted for this “new” job. This video shows how I adapted the SMPS2Dynamixel and 3P PCB Hubs to isolate the 5V circuit (XL330s) from the 12V circuit (XL430s) while keeping the communications lines between XL330s and XL430s in place.
Thank you for good tips to chain XL430/330 together although they are running at different voltage.
But sadly, the shared video is not shared for everyone
Thanks for letting me know, I have set it so that it can be embedded on this Community web site.
