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.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
