Servos for Animation, Signals, Switch Machines and More
A servo is a miniature gearmotor whose output shaft rotates from one end point to another when an electrical switch is thrown. When used in combination with our Dual Servo Control Board, you can use the integrated push buttons to electronically set the end points and speed of rotation. And two servos can be set to work independently, together, or in sequence. You can even set them to operate continuously back-and forth, like sawing wood. Use them to animate miniature machinery, circus models, railroad switch points, working figures, semaphore signals, crossing gates, uncoupling ramps, garage doors, cranes, automobile lifts, signs, and so much more. Select from 3 popular sizes of servos: standard, miniature and micro; see specifications below. Circuitry requires 9-16v DC power supply and toggle switches; see below for suggestions.
Miniature Size Servo is 1-1/8 inches long x 7/16 inch wide x 1 inch tall*. Stall torque: 3.5 kg-cm. Includes 2 horns (actuator arms), mounting hardware, and 7 inch cable with standard connector. Package of 2.
*Dimensions are of motor housing only and do not include mounting ears or output shaft.
The HD-1711MG from Power HD is a miniature-sized analog servo with the same output spline as standard servos, making it compatible with standard-sized servo horns (cranks). The gear train is made primarily of metal gears and the output shaft is supported by a ball bearing. Includes 2 horns, shock-resistant mounting hardware, and 7 inch cable with standard JR plug and brown/red/orange leads.
