servo controller

driving my hexapod servos using STAMP and PSCU

Hi - I'm coming back to Stamp after quite a while away, and obviously a lot has changed! - but what has not is my being an ignoramus !

I'm working with an old Propeller Servo control unit (PSCU), which I'm just starting to find my way around coupled to my trusty stamp board of education (Incidental to my question does anyone know how I can get another? - looks like this little chap is discontinued )

Elechouse 32 Channel Servo Controller Problem

Hello everybody,

I have a hexapod that I bought that came with an elechouse 32 channel servo controller.  My goal is to get this thing going with a wireless PS2 controller and a arduino mega 2560 micro controller.  But so far I can't even get the legs to move properly.

I have searched on the internet about this controller and there is not much out there.  These are the links that I have found and the resources I have.

Ethernet Servo Controller

I am trying to find a servo controller that can be sent commands over ethernet. To my surprise I cannot seem to find a nice simple one that will do this?! All I need to do is control 1 servo (if the device controls multiple servos that would be ok too).

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Servo Controller: A thought experiment

First up, this is at best a work in progress, at worst only ramblings.

I have seen members asking about driving more than a handful of servos and getting the response that they can either use an arduino and its assorted libraries to drive 12+ servos, correction, up to 20 servos or get a dedicated controller board that seems to cost in the area of 50USD. I spent an hour or so knocking up an idea. I want to lay out my thoughts and see where it could or should go.

 

Servos energy (Robotic Arm)

Update:

Well, now that I have time for this robot I've discovered that the SSC32 supports at maximum 9 volts and my PSU is 12 volts. The website for robotshop says 6v to 12 volts but the documentation says 7.2v. Help me please

Cheers

H-Bridge Motor Control for DIY Servo

I'm building a DIY servo for steering Yard Gnome. I'm testing some things out while I wait for the 24VDC 30 rpm 41 in-lbs gearmotor I ordered to arrive.

I'd like some advice on my controller.

Homebrew Servo Controller Issues

Hi,

I've been developing my own serial servo controller for the hexapod I'm working on, using a Microchip PIC16F74.  It accepts serial input and controls up to 20 servos. The servos are connected in ports A, B and D.  Power for the PIC is from a 9v battery via a 7805 regulator.  The servos have a separate power supply from a 6v battery pack.

Walks forward and backward, turns in place, avoids obstacles.

All for my new robot project - a Hexapod. I did a quick 3d renedering on how it is going to walk. If I have anything of interest to show I'll make a new 'robot' entry :)
