Has anyone used or have information on the External Battery Interface that is shown in the MC500 Series Servo Driver Manual V2.1. I am hoping to used it to be able to retain the zero position on a RMD-X8 actuator when the unit is powered down. It list it as a Lipo 1 battery. Will this driver board keep the lipo 1 battery charged when powered on. Can I replace this with 2 AA batteries (with diode to isolate it from any charging circuit)? We have restrictions on using lipo due to fire risk. Any more information that what is provided for download would be helpful.

I have serval RMDx8 actuators and I am finding that the Servo Motor Control Protocol V2.0 documentation is not correct for some of the READ Commands like 0x60,0x61, 0x62 and 0x92. Also 0x93 returns nothing. I believe 0x62 is nor functioning right as it just returns 1 for both RMDx8 units. One has a multiturn offset of 5 degs while the other is 1080 degs. I driver on my unit is the newer one that requires a Position move to complete before a new one can be written. Is there newer documentation for this Driver? If so , where can I get it? I am evaluating this units with the plans of buying more if they work in our application
