Servo modification for direction
« on: July 12, 2011, 05:36:33 AM »
I'm wondering if I could modify a servo to switch the power and ground leads to it. The idea is to not have to reverse the direction in the software for one of them when driving a robot.

Anyone done this? I've never been inside a servo and don't want to just dive in.

Thanks

Joe

Yep easy to do, how every some servos have wire soldered to the motor, others may be directly solder onto the PCB of the servo.

What every means it is connected to the PCB it is possible to reverse the direction manually.

This guy does it for use in his RC system however it directly translates to any use of a servo and robotics.
