Anyway to stop servos after sequence?

I have put together a sequence using 8 servos that triggers from an infra red motion sensor. At the end of the sequence the servos return to neutral position, but there must be some minor resistance because they are still quietly humming. I’m concerned that if left like this for a long time they might burn out. So i’m just wondering if there is a command to power off the servos until the next time the sensor is triggered?

thanks in advance!


You can set the target to 0 to tell the Maestro to stop sending pulses. This will cause most servos to turn off. Here is an example script that would turn off the servo on channel 2:


Not only does that work beautifully but now you have said it I can understand the logic behind it. You are a wonderful human being :slight_smile:
