batteries
« on: November 15, 2007, 12:18:56 PM »
I need to operate two high torque servo motors : HITEC HSR 5995TG using single battery pack.
Also I need to drive two low torque motors : HITEC HS322-HD using another battery pack.

Anybody having experience using these servos , plz help me find the suitable battery pack.

What exactly should I look  for in selecting a battery for driving servos?

Based on this, I would suggest the maximum battery to use would be an 8v NiMH battery pack for the HSR-5995TG. Not sure on this one but you might need something like 4 or 5 Amp hours...

a NiMH battery pack of 6 or 7 volts and 1500+ mAh should be sufficient.

I often use both of those servos . . .

For the 5995, expect between .2A and .7A of current, depending on how much torque they apply.

For the 322, expect between .2A and .5A of cucrrent.

To calculate how long your battery will last, use this battery calculator:
http://www.societyofrobots.com/battery_calculator.shtml

Enter in ~.4A for Expected Current Draw and 4 for # of Motors to get a good estimate.

hi...
for torque requirement of 2.12 Nm I have bought HSR5995 TG and for 0.41 Nm I am using HS 322HD.
Now I am searching for a good battery pack to drive these servos.
 According to the specs.  I need a battery pack having 7.4 V and max of 5 AH supply for 5995 servo. Am i right?
 So If I use two such servos I will be needing a single battery pack of 7.4V and max. of 10 amp suppy.
searching through the net i found that this motor need a current supply of 2500 mAh.
I am getting confused  a little over here.
 same is the case with 322HD servo.
Plz help me clear my basics about batteries and suggest a suitable NiMH battery pack to two servos of each type.
 Thank you.

Batteries in series meaning:
---|i|i--|i|i---
Give more voltage but the same amount of amperage. Batteries in parallel meaning:
    ---|i|i---
---|         |---
    ---|i|i---
Give the same amount of voltage but they will supply more mAh (MilliAmp hours) so they can run longer at higher loads.

Thats the basics on batteries.

First, 10 amps and 10Ah are two different things. 10Ah means if a battery is drained at a constant 10 amps, it will take 1 hour before it dies. 10Ah also means that if it is drained at a constant 5 amps, it will take 2 hours before it dies, etc.

So 2500mAh means it will take 1 hour for it to die if you drain it at 2.5A constant. So if you have two servos that each drain 1A (for 2 amps constant), then it will last 2.5Ah/2A = 1.25 hours.

As for 7.4V, thats its maximum rating. You can always use a 6V or 7.2V battery, no problem.
