Question About Adding A Servo In Project Designer
« on: November 23, 2011, 04:21:07 PM »
Hey guys,

In Project Designer, when I add a hardware PWM servo it asks for the "center" and "range" of the servo.  What are these parameters and where can I find the information I need?  I am using a Hitec Hs- 65mg servo.

Thanks

Servo-city's website has a lot of specs for Hitec and Futaba servos.  The HS-65MG is listed here.  I like the picture because it makes it fairly self-explanatory:



As you can see neutral is at 1500 and it can range + or - 900 for a total range of 600 to 2400 microseconds.  Of course these are idealized and may vary some from servo to servo, particularly if you buy generic servos.  I recommend testing the range of the servo so you can get full range without driving it outside its limits.

For the greatest tragedy of them all
Is never to feel the burning light."
