You have all the way known only mototrs that rotatewhen you give in power?.Well did u want to have motors that can be positioned in a particular angle them move them to different location. If you are making a robonoid u can’t think of any other motor than a Servonmotor.
This motor has an inbuilt circuitry to position the axle in a particular position based on the pulse width to its input. Varying the pulse width will result in changing the position of the motor.
This motor will help you make your bot in many ways. you may use it to steer the front wheel of your back wheel driven robot .You may happily use it to make a humanoiid arm movement system or just about any jijnt for the humanoid. i guess it is or great help when u can accurately position your motor. Afterall having a full control non what you do is what everyone will want.
How It Works
I guess it is straight forward. You may see in the picture below,The pulse width of the input is shown on the left and you may see the different postion of the motot axle to your right.
Now you may generate this pulse using your microcontroller very easily or use a 555 to generate various pulsewidth using a variabl POT at the frequency determining pins. i guess things are pretty clear. If you do not know how to do this using 555 son worry i’l get that to you soon.Will also get the MicroC code for steering soon.
If you are beginig to make a bot donot goto DC motor but go for Servomotors cos they give a good torque.hey does it sound contradictory???. Did i say that we can adjust the postion of the axle then how de hell to make it run continuously. Well there is a small hack that you’l find all around the internet to do that. So guys try using this motor. It will make a good Geared DC motor with an inbuilt circuitry.
Do use it.Do Comment your feedbacks.
