As far as I know, except for possibly a few specialty item servos, 99% of typical R/C servos require 4.8 to 6vdc power.

That's why I don't understand the 12V power supply.

The keyword is optocoupler.

The main problem here is that the servos and the Arduino share a power supply. An optocoupler won't help with that.
