Hello, I'm working on a project with an ethernet shield (Wiznet 5100), and two hobby servos (TowerPro SG90). I'm concerned about current consumption and want to ask before connecting things. I don't have a good sense for these things.
Can an an Arduino power both servos and the ethernet shield? For the servos, only one of them will be running at a time. But I read that servos consume current even if not moving.
I tried looking this up myself, but couldn't find current for the ethernet shield (only the datasheet 5100 chip). For the servo, one of them is moving freely and the other has a 10 gram weight that it's moving around. I couldn't find a source to estimate this current consumption, but maybe if someone has a good feel for this, and can give me a guess?
