The PhidgetAdvancedServo 8-Motor allows you to control the position, velocity, and acceleration of up to 8 RC servo motors. It requires a 8-30VDC external power supply; its switching power supply allows the RCC0004 to efficiently operate from 8 to 30 VDC and can be used with a wide range of batteries. You can control the regulator and choose a global servo voltage of 5.0V, 6.0V, or 7.4V. A servo will have more torque when running at a higher voltage, but will have a shorter overall lifespan. Check your servo's data sheet and balance the voltage for your specific application. 

The RCC0004 connects directly to a computer’s USB port.
