*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.
