Control one RC servo motor or actuator with this controller board. Powered solely by your computer via USB.
The PhidgetAdvancedServo 1-Motor allows you to control the position, velocity, and acceleration of one RC servo motor. The 1066 is powered solely by the USB cable – no additional power source is required.
The 1066 has a high resolution of 125 steps per degree; it measures the power consumption of the servo, and powers servo motors of up to 450mA.
The AdvancedServo connects directly to a computer’s USB port.

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.
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.
