Servo won't turn while accepting commands need help

Post by Christian Menzel » Mon Aug 28, 2017 7:03 pm

Hello there,

I'm requesting your recommendation -
I'm attempting to turn a servo with my Arduino when it gets orders from a serial contribution, for this situation, my console. I have officially done this with engines and it works fine however when I attempt with my servo it doesn't move by any means. (an example from - http://www.powerjackmotion.com/product- ... tor-range/ )

I'm powering the servo remotely with a 9-volt battery and have made a point to associate its ground to that of the Arduino, however, can't see whatever else I fouled up.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Welcome to fusor.net.

You picked the wrong subforum, though the relevant admonition could easily be overlooked:
Board index
‹ Construction / Technical Do not post simple questions here. Use the New User Chat area
‹ Fusor Construction & Operation (& FAQs)


We don't know anything about what you are making, or what kind of servo you are talking about.
Is it a RC-model type servo, with geared DC motor and position feedback? Are you sending it a pulse train with conventional voltages, pulse width range, and pulse repetition rate? There are places better than fusor.net to find help for that sort of thing.

Would you mind saying more about your "successful control of engines" ? Thanks!
