Hi Duet Users,
I want to connect and operate a servo motor (MG945 Digital Servo, operating voltage: 4.8-7.2V) with my Duet Wifi; however it doesn't work...
A servo motor should be implemented to grip (and then lift via z-stage) a dish; hence the application requires gripping (for example: 120 to 60 degrees) for 10 sec and then an opening motion (60 to 120 degrees).
Duet Wifi + Duex5 (12V, 29A), 7 stepper motors with 7 limit switches, 4 fans, 2 bed heater, 1 servo motor
The servor motor has three wires/pinouts (PWM, VCC, GND). According to the documentation "Using servos and controlling unused IO pins", I can use heater pins to connect the servo motor. Since the heater connection has two pins, I was wondering how to connect the servo motor to the DuetWifi. Do you have any example for the wiring of a servo motor? Is the motor connected to ext 5V (with +5V and GND) and the PWM to the heater pin?
Using the heater pins, I disabled the heater via M307 H# A-1 C-1 D-1 in the config file. Currently, I am a bit confused if E0 is H0? Moreover, do I have to use the M42 command when using M280 servo control command? It would be great to see an example protocol for operating a servo motor.
Thanks a lot for your feedback and support!
