    The PhantomX XL430 Robot Turret is a fully programmable pan and tilt system designed around the DYNAMIXEL XL430-W250-T servos from Robotis. The servos offer a high resolution of 4096 positions and user definable PID parameters. Temperature monitoring, positional feedback as well as voltage levels, load and compliance settings are all user accessible as well. The PhantomX XL430 Turret comes with the DYNAMIXEL U2D2 for ROS control and the CM9.04c for Serial Firmware control.
