SC08A offers reliable yet user-friendly RC Servo motor controller to hobbyist and students. This SC08A can control 8 channels of servo simultaneously. The advantages of this SC08A over SC16A are user is able to deactivate any servo channel at any time and user can even set the initial position of any channel at the next start up. Each servo signal pin is able to generate servo pulses from 0.5 ms to 2.5 ms, which is greater than the range of most servos, further allows for servos to operate 180 degrees. SC08A comes with small size and different protocol compares to SC16A.Through serial communication, SC08A can be daisy chain in 2 boards to offer independent control over 16 RC servo motors simultaneously. The host of SC08A can either be a PC desktop/Laptop with USB to serial(UART) converter, or microcontroller with UART interface. UART interface present a flexible, fast and easy to use a feature.
It is designed with capabilities and features of:
8 channels: Servo driven independently
Extendable to 16 Channels: Two controllers linked together to drive 16 servos
Optional Position Reporting: User may request position of an individual servo
Servo Activation for each channel: User may deactivate or activate any channel of servo
Independent Starting Position Command for each channel: User may set the initial position of any channel at the next start-up
Optional Servo Ramping: Choose one of 100 ramp rate for each servo
Resolution: 8000 steps = 0.25us
UART: 9600 baud rate
Servo pulse range: 0.5ms to 2.5ms
Dimension : 49mm x 46mm
New! Free Sample GUI: User able to control the Servo Motors from Computer via USB to UART Converter.
SC08A protocol/command is different from SC16A, please refer to its user manual.
* The sample GUI is provided free, therefore no further support is provided. It has been tested on Window XP and Window 7.
