1061_1B Phidget Advanced Servo 8-Motor




The 1061_1B Phidget Advanced Servo 8-Motor allows you to control the position, velocity, and acceleration of up to 8 RC servo motors. It requires a 6-15VDC external power supply; its switching power supply allows the 1061 to efficiently operate from 6 to 15 VDC and can be used with a wide range of batteries. For a list of compatible power supplies, see the Compatible Products tab.

The 1061 measures the power consumption of each servo and its switching regulator protects the motors from overvoltage. It powers servo motors of up to 3.4 Amps.

The 1061 continuously measures the current consumed by each motor with an accuracy of ±10%.

The Advanced Servo 8-Motor connects directly to a computer’s USB port.

Note: The 1061_1B is identical to the 1061_1, except that you have the option of whether you want to include the USB cable.

1061_1B Phidget Advanced Servo 8-Motor comes packaged with

  • A Hardware mounting kit (4 nuts and bolts (M3), 4 plastic spacers)
