*Starting from 12th Aug 2014, GD02 is in Revision 2.0. Please refer to the latest User's Manual.

G15 Driver (GD02) is used to drive G15 Cube Servo. It is a Full to Half Duplex Communication Converter board. It converts UART full duplex communication to half-duplex single line communication which is required by G15 Cube Servo. GD02 has two ports for the Cube Servo. G15 Cube servo is a serial controlled servo motor which can be daisy chained.  G02 has a separated port connector for motor’s power supply. GD02 offers simple and easy way to user to control G15 Cube Servo with UART communication from any microcontroller board for example Cytron’s SKPIC32, SK40C, SK28A, SK18B and Arduino’s Main Board.

 

Specifications:
  • UART Voltage: 3.3V or 5V
  • Motor Voltage: 7-15VDC
  • Maximum Continuous Current: 8A
 
G15 driver comes with:   
  • 2 x G15 Cube Servo ports (can be daisy chained to more servos)
  • External power terminal for Cube Servo.
  • 2 LEDs as logic power and servo power indicators.
  • 3.3V and 5V signals compatible.
 
Improvements in Rev2.0:
  • Polarity protection for power input to Cube Servo.
  • Additional DC jack socket for Vin, using DC adapter will be easier.
  • Compatible UART signal port with UC00A. Control from computer will be easier.
  • Optional slide switch to select the logic for UART flow control, making it compatible with Arduino G15 shield library.
  • For full details, please check the User's Manual for GD02 Rev2.0.
Is there a specific library for gd02 rev 2.0 driver for g15 control using Arduino. The library given for driver doesn't seems to work. I can't even set the motor id. ( Aswin R S, 04/05/2019 )
Hi, you can use the example code for Shield-G15.
https://github.com/CytronTechnologies/Cytron-G15Shield

Test with:
Positioning example for Rev2.0

Connection:
Set slide switch to B
VCC to 5V
GND to GND
TX to D2
RX to D3
CTRL to D8

this driver can drive 20 servos with load? ( maxx, 02/03/2019 )
Hi, without load yes it can support more than 20 servos but we recommend you to connect it in parallel. For more info please post on our forum.
how to do software serial in gd02 lib becoz it don't have software serial in librarry
( sagar, 16/02/2018 )
Hi, you can use G15 Arduino Shield library provided in Library Manager. It is using SoftwareSerial. For further questions, please visit to our technical forum for similar question or post your question there, as this session is only for short inquiry. Thanks.
Can the control pin of GD02 be connected directly to the microcontroller i/o pins as per the manual? (Mine not working with pic microcontroller) ( Niz, 16/02/2016 )

Hi, yes you can directly connect to the microcontroller i/o pin. Since yours is not working with PIC microcontroller, you can contact our support team at support@cytron.com.my with brief explanation of the board problem, photo of hardware setup and necessary information for the team to troubleshoot the problems. Thanks. :)

The power connection should be made on the terminal connector Vdd and gnd and ALSO to the power jack? Or is sufficent to connect only the power jack to 12V supply? ( Cladudio, 26/03/2015 )

You just need to connect the power source to either the DC jack or the terminal block.

I've a question: this driver is compatible with other (like Dynamixel or HerculeX) smart servo (that support half duplex communication)? ( Claudio, 26/03/2015 )

It's compatilbe with Dynamixel. We are not sure for HerculeX cause we never used that before.
