Product Features


Control up to 8 RC servo motors or actuators with this controller board. Connects to your computer via USB.

Product Description

The PhidgetAdvancedServo 8-Motor allows you to control the position, velocity, and acceleration of up to 8 RC servo motors. It requires a 6-15VDC external power supply; its switching power supply allows the 1061 to efficiently operate from 6 to 15 VDC and can be used with a wide range of batteries. 

The 1061 has a high resolution of 125 steps per degree; it measures the power consumption of each servo and its switching regulator protects the motors from overvoltage. It powers servo motors of up to 3.4 Amps.

The 1061 continuously measures the current consumed by each motor with an accuracy of ±10%.

The AdvancedServo connects directly to a computer’s USB port.

Enclosure

We do not carry enclosures for the 1061_1, because motor controllers are prone to overheating when kept in enclosed spaces for extended periods of time with no airflow.


Resources


*When you download the sample code, look in the "AdvancedServoExamples" folder, not the "ServoExamples" folder.

Each servo motor behaves slightly differently. The Phidgets API provides calibration parameters for a number of different models of servo motors; however these values are generic with respect to the model and not specific to each individual unit. It is possible to generate your own values through some manual calibration in the event that your application requires very accurate control or if you are using a servo for which default values are not provided. Read the following manual to find out how to do it.

Servo Motors

If you need some motors, we do carry a good variety of servo motors with different amount of torque, different material for the gear trains and different amount of travel; we also offer continuous rotation servos.
