Example code:

import time

from pydxl import Mx28, SerialLink

link = SerialLink(
    device="/dev/ttyUSB0", baudrate=1_000_000, protocol_version=1.0

servo = Mx28(identifier=1, serial_link=link)
servo.led = True

servo.torque_enable = True
servo.goal_position = 2000
servo.goal_position = 1500
servo.torque_enable = False



  • Use protocol 1.0 through a serial link, known to work with:
    • U2D2
  • Support servos:
    • MX-28
  • TODO: implement protocol 2.0
  • TODO: add more servo types
