pololu_maestro:

Config file section

Valid in machine config files YES
Valid in mode config files NO

The 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.

Required settings

The following sections are required in the pololu_maestro: section of your config:

port:

Single value, type: string.

The name of the serial port.

Optional settings

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.

servo_max:

Single value, type: integer. Default: 9000

servo_min:
