$39.95

The Eighteen-channel Micro Maestro is a fabulous platform for the control of multiple servos and it is one in a series of many Micro Maestro controllers that can be controlled directly over USB, or through your Arduino or other embedded microcontroller or development board through TTL control, and even crazier you can load your own control logic on the Micro Maestro to make it operate as it's own intelligent control interface for your next project.
With 0.25μs resolution and built-in speed and acceleration control, and even general I/O controller capability (e.g. to interface with a sensor or ESC via your USB port), this board is perfect for a wide range of tasks, and can save you loads of development time.

This device comes fully assembled and ships with header pins installed.

Product Description

Package Contents:

Pololu Micro Maestro 18-Channel 5-16V USB Multi Servo Controller (Assembled)

Features:

Channels: 18
Baud: 300 – 200000 bps1
Minimum operating voltage: 5 V
Maximum operating voltage: 16 V
Supply current (Min): 40 mA2 (plus current for each servo)

Three control methods: USB, TTL (5V) serial, and internal scripting
0.25μs output pulse width resolution (corresponds to approximately 0.025° for a typical servo, which is beyond what the servo could resolve)
Pulse rate configurable from 33 to 100 Hz (2)
Wide pulse range of 64 to 3280 μs (2)
Individual speed and acceleration control for each channel
Channels can be optionally configured to go to a specified position or turn off on startup or error
Channels can also be used as general-purpose digital outputs or analog inputs
A simple scripting language lets you program the controller to perform complex actions even after its USB and serial connections are removed
Comprehensive user’s guide 

Free configuration and control application for Windows makes it easy to:
Configure and test your controller
Create, run, and save sequences of servo movements for animatronics and walking robots
Write, step through, and run scripts stored in the servo controller
Two ways to write software to control the Maestro from a PC:
Virtual COM port makes it easy to send serial commands from any development environment that supports serial communication
Pololu USB Software Development Kit allows use of more advanced native USB commands and includes example code in C#, Visual Basic .NET, and Visual C++
TTL serial features:
Supports 300 – 200000 bps in fixed-baud mode, 300 – 115200 bps in autodetect-baud mode (2)
Simultaneously supports the Pololu protocol, which gives access to advanced functionality, and the simpler Scott Edwards MiniSSC II protocol (there is no need to configure the device for a particular protocol mode)
Can be daisy-chained with other Pololu servo and motor controllers using a single serial transmit line
Can function as a general-purpose USB-to-TTL serial adapter for projects controlled from a PC
Board can be powered off of USB or a 5 – 16 V battery, and it makes the regulated 5V available to the user
Compact size of 0.85″ × 1.20″ (2.16 × 3.05 cm) and light weight of 0.17 oz (4.8 g) with headers
Upgradable firmware
