Hi Everyone! I am new to the whole dynamixel system, and I just bough the Open RB 150 to use on a robotic arm project. I plugged the open RB into my laptop and noticed that it was getting extremely hot (just plugged into my laptop). Specifically, I think it is chip labeled U3, but is this normal?
I decided to go ahead and solder my 12v connections, and try to connect to my Dynamxel ax12 servos.I double checked that I changed over the jumper to use the VIN power, but the Dynamixel wizard can not find the servos and the open RB is getting extremely hot. I am looking for any suggestions on what to try
