Hi all, hope all is well
Right now I am using an Emax ES9051 4.3g Digital Mini Servo motor for a project.
This is the set up I am currently using to power my motor (img below)
As you can see, I am using an Arduino to control the servo. I am using the PyFirmata library to control the servo and this is the code I have written which, (in my understanding), is supposed to make the servo go at its top speed.
Note, ^ is there to make sure I did not make a clumsy error.
How the system works: The motor moves the white component, (I will now call this a finger), and the finger touches a piano key which produces a sound.
PROBLEM: The motor does not actuate the finger fast enough.
I am looking for suggestions for fast micro servos that operate at a speed greater than 0.09 seconds/60 degrees.
Alternatively, I know using a crankshaft is a possibility - I am interested in hearing the opinion of the people in this forum.
Please note that: i can switch out the battery for one with a higher voltage, but I would like to refrain from spending over 100USD, as I plan to eventually have 88 of them. It is crucial that the motor is micro.
Thank you <3
