Servo Issue With Axon

(1/3) > >>

Mastermime:
Hello everyone,

This post is also in software (Servo Code), but I figure this particular issue deals with electrical. 

So here is my setup: 12v > Axon II > 12v Pins > L7805 linear regulator > servo

My servo draws 350ma max.  I will be operating at half speed though so the current draw will be less.  I just wanted to confirm that this little circuit will solve my problem.  I know I'll be wasting 2.5-3 watts, but that doesn't really matter to me.

Thanks

Jason

What little circuit?

Mastermime:
Actually it hardly could be considered a circuit.  Those would be the 3 pins on the Axon II.  All I'm doing is placing a regulator between 12v unregulated pin and the servo to drop it down to a voltage the servo can handle.

12v unregulated pin-----------------------LM7805----------Servo

Servo pin-------------------------------------------------------Servo

GND-------------------------------------------------------------Servo

Hope this makes sense
Thanks

Gertlex:
Presumably the regulator has a ground, too. :)

Mastermime:
Oh yeah I forgot to add that in there.
