Product Description

The PhidgetServo 1-Motor is a USB based controller that can control one Remote Control (RC) servo motor powered directly from the USB port of a PC.

The PhidgetServo firmware can issue commands to the servo motor with a resolution of 0.1 degree. The motor's internal control system's step resolution will determine how the command is implemented. The actual motor shaft positioning is affected by the motor’s gear slop.
