pololu_maestro: section of your config is where you configure the serial
port that a Pololu Maestro servo controller is connected to.
When you attach a Pololu Maestro, two serial ports will appear. You want to specific the first (lower numbered) port here. For example:
pololu_maestro: port: COM5
Note that there are a few other settings you need to configure in other areas to use a Pololu Maestro servo controller. See the How To guide for details.
The following sections are required in the
pololu_maestro: section of your config:
Single value, type:
The name of the serial port.
The following sections are optional in the
pololu_maestro: section of your config. (If you don’t include them, the default will be used).
NOTE: The Pololu Maestro control center software and typical servo specifications work in units of microseconds. The values used here are in quarter-microseconds, so to make them correspond multiply your servo specs by 4. eg a servo with range of 600-2400 microsecods would be servo_min: 2400 and servo_max: 9600 for the full range.
