Miga Rotary 2P

Nanomuscle is a shape memory alloy based rotary actuator. Rotation up to 60 degrees in either direction. 2 pin version gives you direct on/off control. Simply apply 3-6V at 350mA and the rotary will turn.

Miga Rotary 2P Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Soldering

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.

1 Soldering

Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

Core Skill: Robotics

This skill concerns mechanical and robotics knowledge. You may need to know how mechanical parts interact, how motors work, or how to use motor drivers and controllers.

1 Robotics

Skill Level: Noob - You will be required to put together a robotics kit. Necessary parts are included and steps will be easy to follow. You also might encounter basic robotics components like bearings, mounts, or other hardware and need a general idea of how it goes together.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

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.

2 Electrical Prototyping

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.

Customer Comments

  • Besides the price, what are the advantages to this over a normal motor?

    • I know I’m 4 years late, but Miga has a page on this: http://www.migamotors.com/index.php?main_page=faqs

  • People should know that this doesn’t match the part in the datasheet. It can’t be driven directly by a microcontroller because it doesn’t have the 5 pins specified in the datasheet. It has a positive and ground. It also pulses back and forth and doesn’t stay completely rotated. Depending on what you need for your project, this might not be the best solution, as I found out the hard way. Alan

    • Look at the “Pinouts” link for the Miga Rotary 6P/. The first picture is the pinout for this device. Or just copy and paste this link.<br />

      But yes, the datasheet is incorrect. It appears to be the one for the 6P.
