    The DYNAMIXEL Shield for Arduino MKR allows users to easily use ROBOTIS’ DYNAMIXEL Series along with Arduino MKR Boards.

    The features are as follows:

    - Compatible with Arduino MKR
    - Compatible with ROBOTIS DYNAMIXEL TTL Series (Discontinued DYNAMIXEL may not be supported)
    - For 12V DYNAMIXEL power supply, ROBOTIS SMPS 12V 5A PS-10 is recommended
    - The included battery connector is compatible with ROBOTIS 3S Li-Po 11.1V batteries LB-010 or LB-020
    - Only one JST DYNAMIXEL connector is assembled by default. Please solder included headers when necessary.
    - JST DYNAMIXEL connector supports controlling individual servos and daisy-chains.


    ROBOTIS provides Arduino libraries for DYNAMIXEL Shield to accelerate the development process using Arduino IDE.
