Rule the rotation of your servo with the Servo Commander! Its input knob provides real-time servo control while four buttons store configurable travel positions. You can even use the buttons to select your preferred PWM range among four preset options during power-up!
Two sets of 2.54mm (0.1”) headers allow you to put up to two servos under the Servo Commander’s control.
Servo Position Programming
Storing and recalling a servo travel position couldn’t be easier! It’s just like saving radio stations on a car’s stereo. When your servo is in the position you want to save, just hold your button of choice until its corresponding LED illumination is solid. The next time that button is pressed, the servo will travel right back to the saved position!
PWM Range Customization
Each of the Servo Commander’s 4 preset PWM ranges has been specially selected by the goBILDA® R&D team to provide you the best options for a variety of servos!
1050µs - 1950µs: The standard for 90° rotation.
850µs-2150µs: The typical max signal range for Hitec and Savox digital servos.
600µs-2400µs: Allows most analog servos to rotate 180°.
500µs-2500µs: Enables goBILDA® servos to achieve full travel!
It’s extremely easy to configure between preset ranges! No computer required. Just follow these steps:
Power off Servo Commander.
Hold button of desired PWM range.
Power on Servo Commander while holding button.
Release button when the corresponding LED illumination is solid.
The Commander can be powered by a DC input voltage between 5 and 15V. Choose a voltage appropriate for the servo you plan to plug into the Commander. Sending a voltage higher than that for which your servo is rated will result in damage to the servo. The XT30 connector is the primary power input port; however, if you are using a battery with a connector similar to that of a servo (TJC8), you may plug it into the + and - pins at the top of the board.
Two M4 screws and locknuts hold the Commander’s case together, while the thru-holes on the remaining opposite corners allow you to fasten the Commander to any assembly or component matching its goBILDA® 32mm square pattern. You can easily swap out the pair of case-securing screws with longer ones to install your Commander with four screws!
