Parallax continuous rotation servo: 4 devices in 1

This small servo weighing just 40 g is four devices in one:

  • A high-speed servo motor: 120 rpm @ 6V
  • A servo with feedback control
  • A continuous rotation servo
  • An encoder

All combined in a lightweight and energy-efficient format, consuming approximately 0.15A in normal no-load operation.

Parallax servo: PWM and Hall effect for better feedback

Feedback control is based on two types of signal:

  • A 50 Hz PWM signal
  • A feedback signal from a Hall effect sensor for digital angular position feedback

This twofold control signal makes it easier to maintain a steady speed in continuous rotation, and to reach and hold a given angle while enjoying a great range of motion. It is therefore an ideal servo for equipping a small mobile robot.
