Noob here... I have two related questions..
I am working on a project with 10 MG996R servos. The servos specs include:
Operating Voltage: 4.8~6.6v (upper range preferable as they seem to perform better at or above 6v)
No Load Operating Current: 170mA
Stall Current Draw 1400mA
I am trying to work out how to power my servos using external power supplies that can be plugged into a wall and am worried if I get it wrong, I'll cause a fire.. I really don't want to start a fire.
The servos will be spread out around a room (i.e. I'm not building a single robot or object).
How can I power the servos from just one or two power points (i.e. rather than each servo having its own power source), so I can run each servo's cables back to the power point (likely runs of about 10-15ft)?
Alternatively, how do I power each individual servo using mains power? Could I use these USB Voltage Regulators (i.e. Mains > USB adapter (standard 5v) >> USB Voltage Regulator >> Servo)
Thanks for all of your help. It's much appreciated.
