This “boosted” servo extension board allows up to four different servos to be plugged into it and transfer data up to through a common CAT6 cable before being converted back into servo pin-outs on another extension board (sold separately). The boosted servo extension boards come equipped with a 14504BG chip which allows CAT6 communication of up to 100ft, and utilizes the 1.5” hub pattern.
Actobotics is a robotics building system based around extruded aluminum channels, gears, precision shafts, and ball bearings. Thanks to the two standardized hole patterns, nearly all Actobotics components can be intuitively connected together. The wide range of components makes building complex electromechanical prototypes or finished projects a reality.
The Servo Extension - CAT6 (boosted) board (this product) is receive only and should be at the servo end of your cable run. Use the Servo Extension - CAT6 (non-boosted) board on the sending end of your cable. The non boosted board can be used as a transmitter or receiver but only if your CAT6 run is short.
If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.
