I was wondering if we can use two power supply when using a PICAXE 28x or 40x starter kit, one for the motor or servos and the other for the board or circuit.
Sorry I didn't ask correctly. How much can you put to the other power supply (v2). The one that goes to the motors and the servos. I understand thet you can't hook it up to a car battery, but how much current can you put?
from picaxe for dummies: " Take off the jumper, and connect a seperate power-supply to V2 (and that power supplie's G to ground, goes unsaid from now ;) - and the board will have V1 to the circuits and inputs, V2 to power external stuff, and G for all of it.
That way you can feed the chips with 5V, and the motors with 12V that would otherwise kill the chips."
- Will my servo (pixace servo uppgrade) burn if i hook up 8*AA to V2 (12v)?
How high voltage (/ampere) can you put on v2 without burning the chip?
how much will kill the standard servo? (servo from picaxe upgrade pack)
Any tutorial about that? Please.You´r right about the starter kit, but there is also a 28 version witheout de 40 pin i think.
I´ll probably buy this one. http://loja.comprobotics.com/product_info.php?cPath=124&products_id=224Thank you
Yes you can! And it is very common.
As far as I know, there is not a 40x starter kit.
The 28 is prepared for it.
