Grove - Servo

Introduction

Grove - Servo is DC motor with gearing and feedback system. It is used in driving mechanism of robots. The module is a bonus product for Grove lovers. We regulated the three-wire servo into a Grove standard connector. You can plug and play it as a typical Grove module now, without jumper wires clutter.

But if you feel more like a proto servo, check out EMAX 9g ES08A High Sensitive Mini Servo. They are the same model, both of good quality and burden-free price.

Usage


The Servo has three wires: power, ground, and signal. The power wire is typically red, and should be connected to the 5V pin on the Arduino/Seeeduino board. The ground wire is typically black or brown and should be connected to a ground pin on the Arduino board. The signal pin is typically yellow, orange or white and should be connected to Digital 9 on the Arduino board.You can change to the digital port as you like. But don’t forget to change the port number in the definition of the demo code at the same time.

Next sweeps the shaft of a servo back and forth across 180 degrees.This example makes use of the Arduino servo library.

  • Connect the Servo to Seeeduino and connect Seeeduino to PC using a USB cable.

  • Restart the Arduino IDE, open one demo code you like, for example Sweep directly by the path:File -> Example ->Servo->Sweep.

  • Upload the code.Please click here if you do not know how to upload.

Help us make it better

Thank you for choosing Seeed. A couple of months ago we initiated a project to improve our documentation system. What you are looking at now is the first edition of the new documentation system. Comparing to the old one, here is the progresses that we made:

  • Replaced the old documentation system with a new one that was developed from Mkdocs, a more widely used and cooler tool to develop documentation system.
  • Integrated the documentation system with our official website, now you can go to Bazaar and other section like Forum and Community more conveniently.
  • Reviewed and rewrote documents for hundreds of products for the system’s first edition, and will continue migrate documents from old wiki to the new one.

An easy-to-use instruction is as important as the product itself. We are expecting this new system will improve your experience when using Seeed’s products. However since this is the first edition, there are still many things need to improve, if you have any suggestions or findings, you are most welcome to submit the amended version as our contributor or give us suggestions in the survey below, Please don’t forget to leave your email address so that we can reply.

Happy hacking
