Adding a Servo
So you want to use a servo with your Replicape...
This is a very easy process!
Step 1: Connect your servo to the X2 (or Y2) connection on your Replicape <img src="http://wiki.thing-printer.com/index.php?title=File:Servo.png" />
Step 2: Paste this section into your 'local.cfg'
[Servos] # For Rev B, servo is either P9_14 or P9_16. # Not enabled for now, just kept here for reference. # Angle init is the angle the servo is set to when redeem starts. # pulse min and max is the pulse with for min and max position, as always in SI unit Seconds. # So 0.001 is 1 ms. # Angle min and max is what angles those pulses correspond to. servo_0_enable = True servo_0_channel = P9_14 servo_0_angle_init = 90 servo_0_angle_min = -90 servo_0_angle_max = 90 servo_0_pulse_min = 0.001 servo_0_pulse_max = 0.002
Step 3 : Save and restart Redeem...
Step 4: Try the following commands to see if your servo is working:
M280 P0 S90 F3000 M280 P0 S-90 F3000
Step 5: You will need to tweak the position of your servo by changing the 'S90' and 'S-90' to whatever works for you...
