How to power 12 channel servo with one supply

Hi. I see how you would wire up a 6 channel servo controller to one power supply, (https://www.pololu.com/docs/0J40/7.a) but how do I do this with the 12 channel power supply?

I would also like to set it up so I can run it with either a battery or a plug-in power supply.

I am new to all this. I appreciate your help.


You can power the 12 channel Mini Maestro using a single power supply by connecting it to the dedicated servo power pins located in the corner of the board and then use the included shorting block to connect the pins labeled “VSRV=VIN”:
