Hi,

Thanks for pointing this issue. We have experienced the same thing and have come up with a solution.

The actual problem is that the Dynamixel XL-430 need a 11.1V supply. We are using a 12V power adapter here, and this is what causes the overheating in the motor.

We have tried with just 11.1V and everything is fine: the motor can work indefinitely without overheating, even with some added payload.

(we have also tried your point #3, but this is not what makes the overheating. It really only comes from the too high power supply)

So, the solution :

Use a 11.1V power adapter. You can get on on the Internet, and for new orders we’ll change the power adapter that we ship with the robot. 🙂
