Servo Motor

Interfacing Servo Motor with PIC Microcontroller – MPLAB XC8

Servo Motor is an ordinary geared dc motor equipped with closed loop servo mechanism which uses position feedback to control exact angular position of the rotor. These are commonly used in robotic arms, legs etc. Servo Motors do not rotate continuously, their rotation is limited to fixed angles. Usually these motors have rotation limit from 90º to 180° and some special have limits 360° or more. Servo Motors usually have three wires. RED and BLACK wires are used to provide [...]

Interfacing Servo Motor with PIC Microcontroller

Servo Motor uses error sensing negative feedback to control the precise angular position. Servos are used for precise positioning in robotic arms, legs, RC Aeroplanes, Helicopters etc. Please read the article Servo Motor for more information about its working and construction. Hobby Servo Motors have three wires, two of them (RED and BLACK) are used to given power and the third one is used to give control signals. Servo can be easily be controlled using microcontrollers using Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) signals on [...]

Servo Motor

Introduction Servo Motors are ordinary geared down DC Motors equipped with servo mechanism for precise control of angular position. A servomechanism or servo refers to an error sensing negative feedback which is used to correct the performance of a device. Servos are used for precise positioning in robotic arms, legs, RC Aeroplanes, Helicopters etc. Servo Motors do not rotate continuously, their rotation is limited between fixed angles. Usually these motors have rotation limit from 90° to 180° and some special have limit 360° or more. An [...]
