A 16 servo test console #Servos #Adafruit @Adafruit @Hackaday
Will Cogley posts on YouTube a DIY 16 channel servo tester with 3D printed case.
Pretty much every project I’ve done just lately has required me to test out some servos and experiment with their positions before they go into the assembly. I usually make a quick servo tester on a breadboard and use the serial monitor in the Arduino IDE to get the servo positions, but this time I decided I’d treat myself and design an enclosed, permanent system to test my servos!
The Adafruit 16-channel servo driver board makes it a breeze to build such a project. The servos show up on a screen in groups of four, and can be tested four at a time with the pots. The buttons let the user move up and down between the groups.
See the Hackaday article here, the code here and the video below for details.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
