Dynamixel Sensor Module ‘AX-S1’ is a Smart Sensor Module that integrates the functions of sound sensor, infrared remote control receiver, infrared distance sensor, light sensor, buzzer, as well as the driver, control unit and network. Compact in size, AX-S1 has various functions and it is made up of special materials that can withstand even the extreme external force. In addition, it can readily recognize subtle changes such as internal temperature, service voltage and other internal conditions and has built-in capability to resolve the situations at hand. Followings are the strengths of the Dynamixel Sensor Module AX-S1.
Precision Control Capability to read sensor that has been detected through 1024 steps resolution
Feedback Feedback capabilities for the values of infrared distance sensor, light sensor, sound sensor.
Alarm System Alarm system that detects out of the range values of internal temperature, torque, service voltage were preset by users (Alarming)
Communication Wiring is easy with daisy chain connection, and it support communication speeds up to 1M BPS.
Distributed Control Position, velocity, compliance, and torque can be set with a single command packet, thus enabling the main processor to control many Dynamixel units even with very few resources.
Engineering Plastic The main body of the unit is made with high quality engineering plastic which enables it to handle high torque loads.
Frames Hinge and side mount frame are included as basics. AX-S1 is compatible with AX-12 frames 100%, making it possible to use in various ways. Be cautious as unlike AX-12, Horn part of AX-S1 does not turn, so assemble frame in correct angle with the usage purpose in mind.
Infra-red Sensor It is embedded with three directions infrared sensor, making it possible to detect left/center/right distance angle as well as the light.
Remocon Sensor It has built-in remote control sensor in center, making it possible to transmit and receive infrared data between sensor modules.
Internal Mic It has built-in micro internal microphone, making it possible not only to detect current sound level and maximum loudness but also an ability to count the number of sounds, for instance, the numbers of handclapping
Buzzer Built-in buzzer allows the playback of musical notes and other special note effects.
