Description: ServoMatrix is a MondoMatrix expansion board that can control up to 64 servo motors.  Each servo can have positions between 0 and just over 200.  One of the most powerful features of ServoMatrix is that you can have up to 8 different kinds of servos controlled by a single board.  The reason is that each row of eight servos has an independent power port.  All of the power servo ports can be connected to one power source or each row of eight servos can have independent power sources.  This allows for independent control of a variety of servos all from one controller.  If you were building a robot for example, this would be beneficial as some small servos would use less power and some larger servos would need more power etc.  The ServoMatrix board also has its own power source protecting the board from power related events that can damage the controllers.


Features:

  • Maximum suggested current draw on signal pin: approx. 1mA
  • Input voltage range for the board power inputs: 7V – 12V DC in, 100mA
  • Power input for servos: check your servo documentation, but usually in the 4.8V-6.0V range
  • Power consumption for fully loaded board: check servo documentation for current rating, but likely at least 32A for all 64 servos (assuming 500mA per servo)
  • Servo control pulse range: 0.5ms to 2.5ms, with 8-bit control
  • Data interface: approx. 115.2 kbps (113.636kbps actual), 1 start bit, 1 stop bit, 9 data bits, MatrixNet V1 protocol

Dimensions: 4.8x4.8"
