Cytron Servo Shield (5A) for Arduino that provide build in 5V and 5A output switching regulator
This is the 1st ever servo shield for Arduino that provide build in 5V and 5A output switching regulator. With this servo, you can supply 7V to 25V of power and it will regulate to 5V and 5A (Maximum) to power your favorite servo.
We believe the most troublesome feature of RC servo is the pulses and power. Shield-Servo offers reliable yet user friendly RC (Radio Control) Servo motor controller to hobbyist and students. Differ from SC16A and SC08A, the shield-Servo is designed to control 8 independent RC Servo motors simultaneously in a single board with a built in 5V 5 Ampere switching regulator.
Cytron Servo Shield, each Servo signal pin is able to generate Servo pulses with duty cycle from 0.5ms to 2.5ms, which is greater than the range of most Servos, further allows for Servos to operate in full range of 180 degrees. In order to get SHIELD-Servo working, an Arduino compatible main board (Arduino/Genuino UNO, Mega, CT-UNO, CT-ARM, etc) is needed and the interface is serial (UART).
The shield also provide alternative control over 6 pin UART with USB to Serial converter UC00A/UC00B/UC00C or other types of microcontroller. UART interface present a flexible, fast and easy to use feature.
Specification and Features:
New! Now comes with UC00A/UC00C/UART interface for easier communication between the user’s circuit (or PC) and SHIELD-Servo. By using the new UART control, user can:
Activate each Servo independently
Control position for each Servo
Control Servo speed
Not familiar with UART communication? Fret not, sample source code forUART control is provided for dsPIC30F4013 (C language), Arduino and
Support up to 5A (peak) and 4A(continuous) of total current.
Control 8channels Servo independently.
Able to drive Servo motor from 7V to 25V with build in 5V regulator.
Optional Position Reporting: User may request position of an individual Servo.
5V logic level compatible inputs.
Independent Starting Position Command for each channel at the next start-up
Servo pulse range 0.5ms to 2.5ms.
UART baud rate are saved in the non-volatile memory (Factory default is baud rate = 9600).
