MG995 Metal Gear High Torque 360° Servo Continous Rotation
Hobby Square Singapore
The Servo Motor MG995 360 Degree Continuous Rotation is a standard size servo with good torque and moderate speed.
These servos have good torque for the cost and work well for experimenting with robotic motor drives and similar applications that require a fair amount of grunt.
The high torque capability comes at the expense of fast speed of movement due to the gearing. A 360 rotation takes about 1.2 seconds which is 50RPM.
Unlike normal servos that can be commanded to an exact position within a range of about 180 degrees, these servos rotate continuously in either direction with no ability to position to a particular position. Think of them more like like DC motors with a motor controller built-in that powers the motor and that allows you to start/stop and control direction of rotation. Speed can be adjusted somewhat when operating at near the midrange of the PWM.
These types of servos are handy for driving wheels on a robotic vehicle or if you just want to spin something.
