hello guys !!
so i built this solar tracker using servo motors one controls the the vertical axis and another controls the horizontal direction. i power booth by an arduino uno using the 5v pin. the thing is, its pretty complicated to know how much current the servos are drawing for some reason! but from the arduino page i know max current can be drawn from an arduino pin is 200mA, now i'm trying to calculate how much my servo would use current if it was only to move 15deg/hour(the tracking speed) and the rest on idle. is there is a way ? basically i'm trying to show how much power i'm wasting on powering the motors with respect to generating more power from a solar panel by tracking.. if you get what i mean (i think i confused you !)
if someone can help he would literally be a life saver!!!
