    Servo Motor Card from Opencockpits

    Hello.
    When connecting a server motors to the OC Usb servo motor card
    how much Current can each motor draw? Does anyone know?

    Re: Servo Motor Card from Opencockpits

    Hi Nils,

    The card is built up as the DC motor card.
    In that manual it is : Max 1 Amp and to 36V per motor (max 6 servos or motors).
    So it is reasonable to think that it's the same i.m.o.

    Re: Servo Motor Card from Opencockpits

    Hello
    Thanks for a good answer.
    I sincerely ment to respond with a report from a successful testing of a heavy Servo motor.
    But not this time!
    I was too eager and gave the motor wrong polarity and it latterly caught fire! (This was a small standard servo)
    Ordered new motor (s) this time, from Conrad.
    But when the new test was on the bench it looks like the card is gone.
    So no the motor story is on hold till new card arrives from OC.
    ĖIt canít be Sunday every day! And itís good this is only a hobby.
    Hope you have a good summer.

    Regards
    Nils.
