Customer Comments

  • For those outside of USA the torque is about 50 N*cm.

  • Hi, I never used servomotors before. What control voltage do they need? Can these be used with a microcontroller which has a 3V power supply?

    • 4.8-6V for power, signal might work on 3V, datasheet doesn’t say.

      since it’s got electronics it’s not like a normal motor, not enough volts or amps means it does not operate.

  • I would like to attach these to a proto-board in a removable way, but I’m afraid they could come lose if I just use a male header. Does anyone know of a connection that would be more secure?

    • this is the same connector using in RC cars. unless you have something tug on the wires, it’s not going to come loose very easily. you could always add some kind of physical latch or restraint.

  • The servo use good,“ I have 5 of these motors and they all stall and/or stutter when setting an angle less than 7”,the buddy not correctly adjust parameter,i think.

  • Two questions -

    1 - Does anyone know of good pan / tilt brackets for this motor? 2 - How much weight can this motor support?

    Would appreciate help and guidance. I’m new to this but very excited about my first project!

  • These motors seem to function on a 7 degree to 180 degree scale. I have 5 of these motors and they all stall and/or stutter when setting an angle less than 7. Other motors I have running the same code are functioning fine. Whats the problem? (Running Sweep arduino example code no modifications)

    • Hi you need to modify Servo.h as follow {

      define MIN_PULSE_WIDTH 544 // the shortest pulse sent to a servo

      define MAX_PULSE_WIDTH 2400 // the longest pulse sent to a servo

      define DEFAULT_PULSE_WIDTH 1500 // default pulse width when servo is attached

      define REFRESH_INTERVAL 20000 // minumim time to refresh servos in microseconds

      } Modified to {

      define MIN_PULSE_WIDTH 700 // the shortest pulse sent to a servo

      define MAX_PULSE_WIDTH 2300 // the longest pulse sent to a servo

      define DEFAULT_PULSE_WIDTH 1500 // default pulse width when servo is attached

      define REFRESH_INTERVAL 20000 // minumim time to refresh servos in microseconds

      } You can to try it, this servo will work very good.

Solid standard servo

I’ve used a couple of these. The ball bearing feels like it adds some stability and ruggedness. One motor has been in use for 400 hours of maybe 30% duty cycle at a torque that I have not measured but that is neither particularly light nor terribly heavy, with some software acceleration/deceleration to ease the job. The more generic servos died much sooner in this same job, though that was before I added the software acceleration control so it’s not a great comparison.
