If I hack the HS-5685MH, HS-485HB, or the HS-985MG to operate continuously clockwise and counterclockwise, does the stock holding torque decrease?Is there a way to up the holding torque on a servo?
holding torque is exactly the same as stall torque
Quoteholding torque is exactly the same as stall torqueIn commercial specifications, the stall torque is the maximum amount of torque the motor can deliver with specified voltage/current. Doing this for a longer amount of time will burn out the motor.Holding torque is the amount of torque the motor can deliver continuously, without overheating. You will need a regulator to actually regulate the amount of current into the motor (typically using PWM) to actually stay at this level.
