Controlling a Servo Motor with MicroPython
Types of Servos
Although there are may types of servos you can purchase, in our labs there are two main types of servos that we use:
- SG90 Micro Servo, 9 grams, 180 degree, plastic gears - $4
- MG90S Micro Servo, 9 grams, 180 degree, metal gears - $5
There are other variations that have 360 degree or continuous rotation servos.
Almost all servos have a three pin connector that are spaced 1/10th of an inch apart so they will work with our breadboards.
- Ground (black or brown wire)
- 5 volt power (always red)
- Data (orange or yellow)
