While very similar in appearance, motors and servos are suited to distinctly different types of tasks. Servos are incapable of making a full rotation. Vex Servos are limited to about 100 degrees of rotation, but have the invaluable ability to self-correct to maintain any specific position within the set boundaries.
Like motors, Servos operate off of a PWM signal between 0 and 255 (or -128 to 127, depending on development environment), except servos use that signal to move to a specific position at a constant speed set by the manufacturer.
- Rotation:100 degrees
- Stall Torque:6.5 in-lbs
- Voltage:4.4 - 9.1 Volts (Motor life will be reduced operating outside this range)
- PWM Input:1ms - 2ms will give full reverse to full forward, 1.5ms is neutral
- Black Wire:Ground
- Orange Wire:Power
- White Wire:PWM signal
- Current Draw:20mA to 1.5 A per Servo
