Current Draw of Servos
« on: March 16, 2008, 07:24:08 AM »
I have two of these http://servocity.com/html/hs-425bb_super_sport_bb.html 

They are standard sized servos
What is the average current draw can I expect from each one ? Minimum and maximum is good too

The reason I can't check draw myself is that I lost my good multimeter somewhere in my mess of a workshop, and the only one I have is a multimeter which can measure up to 200mA.


Check out the Roboduino, Arduino-compatible board!

Depends on how much torque you give them :P

Given no other knowledge, expect between .25A and 1A on a servo. That one I'd guess about .3A if you use it for wheels.
