I recently purchased the D24V5F5 to use in my project and I just plugged it in to power my servos. Unfortunately something isn’t working, my setup is as follows.
I have the logic lines of the servos connected to pints 9, 10, 11 on an arduino uno. The power cables are connected into one that goes to the D24V5F5. The ground of the servos is connected to the ground of the arduino.
I’m powering the D24V5F5 with 16V from my bench power supply.
When the servos are connected to the D24V5F5 for power, one moves erratically and the rest don’t move at all. The current draw on the bench power-supply shows 0.00A
Things I’ve tested:
Measured the voltage coming from the D24V5F5 and it is 4.9V.
The current draw of my servos - 0.05A all together when connected to the bench power-supply.
I connected the servos to the bench supply directly and with that setup everything works fine.
I’ve continuity checked all the connections and everything seems connected.
Anticipating problems I also bought the S9V11F5 Step-Up/Step-Down Voltage Regulator. With it everything works great. I’m still curious though, why doesn’t my setup work with the other Voltage Regulator?
