How do i power the Maestro

I am new to servos. I have the maestro 12. What cable do i need to connect a power supply from a wall outlet to the maestro? I have a dc 6v 5A power supply.


Welcome to the forum! I moved your post to the “Servo controllers and servos” section of the forum since it seemed more appropriate.

If you are using a wall-wart style power adapter, you can use something like this DC Barrel Jack to 2-Pin Terminal Block Adapter with some jumper wires to make the connections to the Maestro power pins.

You can find a couple different options for powering the Maestro in the “Powering the Maestro” section of the user’s guide.

By the way, since you are new to servos, you might consider reading through our series of “Engage Your Brain” blog posts focused on servos, starting with this “Introduction to servos”.
