WiFi Servo Controller Ports - Click to Enlarge

 

Uses:

  • Robot controller
  • Surveillance - Pan and Tilt system for a camera: video
  • Industrial automation
  • Animatronics - puppets and effects
  • Industrial automation
  • Data acquisition in lab projects



Sample Software:

Control of the WiFi Servo Controller can be achieved via three methods. The first method involves creating a virtual COM port on the host PC using the Lantronix CPR software. This virtual port then forwards the data from the sample application to the WiFi Servo Controller. The second method involves using a direct TCP/IP connection to the WiFi Servo Controller. Although using the COM port method is a bit easier for beginners it does require another application to create the virtual COM port. The third option is to create a Java applet application that is placed directly on the WiFi Servo Controller's built in web server.

Examples for both connection methods can be found below.

Lantronix CPR software:

To use the COM Port based control software with the WiFi Servo Controller a virtual COM port must be mapped to the WiFi Servo Controller. The Lantronix Com Port Redirector software is required for this function. Get it here:
