Hello. I need a little help in setting up my robot environment.
We are planning to buy eight Dynamixel Mx-64T and to program the algorithm using python and we are a little confused about the hardware setup we should be using.
One solution we have came up is to use OpenCR1.0 that connects all the eight motors using its three TTL ports. I have seen some hardware connections where a single motor is powered up by OpenCR with a single power supply (SMPS 12V 5A power supply, powering up OpenCR). But as we have eight motors with each motor maximum capacity is 12V 5A, a single supply is not enough. We are wondering how can we fulfill the power requirements for all the eight motors in the setup? Should we power up the OpenCR with a bigger power supply?
Any other solutions for the hardware setup will be more than welcome. The only requirement is we need to control all the eight motors simultaneously assuming full capacity and the program should be in python.
