VINT with continuos and 2700 degree servo

Postby rene.qvist » Mon Aug 31, 2020 10:15 am

Does anyone know how to operate a continuos rotation servo with the 16x RC Servo Phidget VINT device? the documentation mentions to set a direction and speed, I just cant seem to find these parameters in the SDK

Also with the 8 revolution servo, is it possible to set higher targets like 2000 degrees?

I am writing in C#

thanks in advance

The continuous rotation servo likely translates a standard RC Servo PWM signal to a direction and velocity.

To verify this for yourself, you can adjust the Position property of said servo to see how it affects the movement.

For the 8 revolution servo, you can adjust the MinPosition and MaxPosition properties to match the corresponding numbers you would like to use to signify both ends of the servo's movement
(e.g. 0-8 rotations or 0-2880 degrees).
