I'm an absolute beginner. I've programmed blinking leds, and some text on a 16x2 LCD. So keep this in mind while we trouble shoot this issue. It coud very well be I did something wrong that is very obvious, so don't assume anything. :)
Currently I'm trying to control a servo.
See website for specs http://www.mks-servo.com.tw/goods.php?goods_id=hbl950
I've connected the servo to a external power source: a 2S lipo 7.4V 340mAh battery pack
I did this by connecting the red servo wire to the red lipo wire, the brown servo wire to the black lipo wire. I connected the orange servo cable to the the arduino Uno pin 9. I'm powering the arduino by USB
I've used the standard servo.h library with the standard example code I've used the megaservo.h libary as well with the example code to write microsecond
But whatever I try, the servo doesn't respond
I've messured the voltage on the battery, it's 7.4V. SO that should be good :) I've tried a second servo, just to check that the first one isn't a bad one.
I've read some post about PWM en PPM and although I currently don't understand the difference I do understand I although MKS states the servo is PWM driven, I shouldn't try analogwrite. at least, untill I fully understand what I'm doing and what the differences are.
What I'd like to know before I spend another couple of days trying things, is: "Should this servo just simply work with the default servo.h library? Or is this a special servo that needs a different setup?
warm regards, Edward
