I want to control 8 micro-servos with Mini Maestro 12-Channel.
But I think I need more power to do so.
How much power I can put the Mini Maestro 12-Channel?
3 x 1.5 v? 4?, 5?, 6? …
The program been operated well, but when I unplug the USB, the light turns red and the servos do not move properly.
I need a solution please
The Maestro’s operating voltage range on VIN is 5-16 V, so three AA cells (which have a nominal voltage of 1.5 V each if alkaline or 1.2 V each if rechargeable) would supply too low of a voltage for it. Four alkaline AAs or five rechargable AAs, giving 6 V, would be a better choice. If you are also powering your servos from the same battery pack, be careful not to use too high of a voltage; most servos are designed to run at 4.8 to 6 V.
You can find more information about powering the Maestro in section 7.a of the user’s guide.
Thank you very much for the reply.
Unfortunately my servos been powering with the same battery pack.
I will use 4 batteries (6 V) to check if it works.
When I finished the project, I will share in the forum.
Thanks and regards.
