The servo is a closed-loop control system with feedback. It is the basic equipment of every remote-controlled mechanism, so it will certainly work well for all robots. Due to it, the control surfaces and components in the machine move. The servos are available in different sizes, and also differ in body shape and gear type. They are used in robotics, modeling and automation, where remote control is used. In this way we can control different physical processes that take place within the robot. In our shop there are servos with different working parameters, so you can use them in less and more advanced projects, adapting to its assumptions and own expectations and goals. In addition to servos, you will also find practical accessories such as branch cables in our shop. You will connect the servos and control them using Arduino minicomputer, which is also available in the offer of Botland.
The appearance on the market of the servos changes the engineer production automation and many other industries. At a later time, there was a miniature servos for modeling, which have also become popular among designers of robots and various vehicles with a remote control....
Servomechanisms are devices that use the feedback phenomenon. The motion reaction of the servo can be caused by factors such as the change in speed, temperature or speed of the object with which the servo works. Basically, each servo consists of components such as a DC drive...
Serwomechanizmy are the main drives in each workshop modelarza RC and robotics-lover. The ease and accuracy of control, small size and weight, high torque, and also – no less important – attractive price, responsible for the immortal (and it has been for many...
Servomechanisms are devices necessary for the construction of DIY electronic projects characterized by a greater degree of expansion. However, it is worth paying attention to the fact that the servos are not equal to each other. This means that we can distinguish many types.
Servomechanisms can be found in many different devices. The main task of servos is to eliminate adjustment errors and control various components - e.g. production machines, but of course not only.
Metal mount enables creating platforms, controlled by servos. A kit for self-assembly allows you to build, for example, a rotating camera stand for face tracking. The kit includes screws and mounting components. Kit does not include the servo.
Aluminium servo horn made by company Feetech, diameter of 2 cm and a diameter of the mounting hole is 6 mm. It is in a circular shape. It works with standard servos. The set also includes caps and mounting screws.
There are several outputs in the servo connector, the third of which is responsible for providing the control signal. This is needed for the motor shaft to be set in the correct position. The signal frequency is 50 Hz, so each single signal lasts 20 ms. A pulse of 1 ms fill sets the servo shaft in motion, which is opposite to the movement of the pointer, quite the opposite with a pulse of 2 ms fill. The neutral position of the servo shaft is reached if a 1 ms fill signal is given. This is how we control the servo shaft using the Arduino board, which is on board our robot. It is a very easy to use minicomputer, with a small size, but also great capabilities.
For the operation of remote-controlled vehicles we need batteries, usually with a rated voltage of 4,8V. It happens, however, that we decide on a larger servo and then we should use batteries with a higher voltage, up to 12 V. If the robot is stationary, we can opt for a power supply with the output voltage required by the servo manufacturer. However, the servo motor will always draw more current, due to the higher mechanical load. An incorrectly matched servo motor will provide insufficient torque and thus contribute to the loss of large amounts of energy. In extreme cases, errors even occur in controller operation. The servo will work properly if we choose the right power supply for it and help ourselves with the Arduino minicomputer. This is how the most advanced projects are created.
The servos are usually designed to rotate the shaft by up to 90° in one direction or the other. However, it is not enough in many projects. In more advanced projects we will need a servo with full range of rotation angle. They work like typical electric motors with constant speed, in this case the maximum speed is usually 60 rpm. For higher value robots we use a normal DC electric motor. In servos with a 360° rotation angle there is a small potentiometer for calibrating the servo to the control signal. The pulse has a filling of 1.5 ms to stop the motor, and a longer or shorter pulse initiates the rotation of the servo shaft to one side or the other.
The servos in the Botland offer are available in different variants. They are indispensable in projects that use remote control. They also have different parameters of operation, so they are used in less and more advanced projects. They are used by robotics for hobby purposes, as well as experienced professional constructors and designers of machines for use by a larger community. Check our offer and choose the servo that best suits your project.
