@schlabbermampf said in Making a Robot: USB-C -> ATOM -> 2x SERVO2 ?:
@ajb2k3 yes makes sense, thats what the SERVO2 module shop-description says, i just get it to understand slowly ;D (just discovered the Documentation of all the M5 parts!) since i like to use the 360° servos with speed and direction control via PWM it may be possible to ensure (in software) a limit for the applied power in total.
Looks like bridging the 30 pin MBus over some short distance with a cable is kinda overkill so a single stack it shall be.
Power management strongly depends on what the servos have to lift, so overall weight-balance/efficiency of all parts is what its all about then in the long term (even when plugged into a full power source).
So i want to get my hands on these pieces soon and start digging. happy to share some progress here :D
Thanks for your kind and fast replies :D
edit: here is the stack, quite simple. (hope these servos do not fry to soon):
You will need to add a 200ms wait at the end of the program loop (or was it 500ms) to slow down the command transmissions otherwise they will fry (I have learned that the hard way after killing 3!)
As @felmue stated, the battery packs will not power the servos, the servos will only be powered from the external supply. If you try, the Fire will suffer from "Brown outs" and keep resetting when more then a few try to operate.
