I got some 360 degrees servos from http://www.goodluckbuy.com/springrc-sm-s3317s-mini-small-analog-servo-360-degree.html
but it only turn 180 degrees when I drive it with an arduino

Code: [Select]

#include <Servo.h>

Servo servo;

void setup()
{
  servo.attach(5);
}

void loop()
{
  servo.write(0);
  delay(2000);
  servo.write(360);
  delay(2000);
}


is there a limit in she Servo.write that only will do 180?
is there a way to manually write PWM to turn the servo 360 degress?

Chagrin

I believe you actually have a servo spec'd for only +/-60 degrees (120 degrees) despite the title on Goodluckbuy. Gently/firmly turn the servo horn by hand and you'll know if it will go farther than the 180 degrees you're getting now.

You are right, it only turns 180 degrees by hand =/
