Hello Pololu servo controller forum,
I am building a sculpture that is moved by 40 servos. I was using
sd-84 servo controller but I am running into a problem where servos
are moving when I move other servos, kind of like a chatter. I tried
to get in touch with the maker of that controller and they were not
very helpful. So I am down with that controller and onto you since I
have heard nothing but positive things.
Like I said, I need to control 40 servos. I want them to move slowly
and fluidly. The sculpture is similar to a 40 armed sea anemone, but
with lights on the tips. My questions are simple:
Can I daisy chain enough of your controllers to be able to control 40 servos?
Will the servos be shaky and not fluid?
I was interested in either the Pololu Micro Serial Servo Controller (8
servos, so I will need 5) or the Micro Maestro 6-Channel(6 servos, so I will need 7 with 2 blank channels).
I have an Arduino Mega that I will be using to drive LEDs and was
planning on using that to run the servo controllers as well.
Help me Pololu... your my only hope (Princess Leia reference)
PS. my apologies to www at pololu com, I posted my email here because I am very eager to spend my money at your store
