- Looking for a way to get more power from your servo?
- Want to run your robot's drive system off 11.1V or more, but the servo can't go that high?
- This voltage regulator will supply 9.6V from any battery from 10.8V-23V (3S-6S).
- 4A is enough to power even the 46kg servo we run in Skylift!
- Unlike linear regulators that "burn off" the extra voltage, this switching regulator is much more efficient so it can be smaller and use less battery power!
- Input: 10.8V-23V (3S-6S)
- Output: 9.6V, up to 4A
- Dimensions: 38 x 11.4 x 10.2mm (1.5 x 0.45 x 0.40in)
- Servo wire length: 20cm (7.9in)
- Weight: 6.3grams (0.22oz)
To hook up in your robot:
- Run the regulator's IN+/- wires to your battery (through your power switch).
- Pull the servo's center wire (positive, red) from the connector then plug the connector (orange and brown) into your receiver.
- Connect the servo's center wire (positive, red) to the regulator's OUT+ (red) wire.
- Connect the regulator's ground wire (black) to one of the receiver's ground terminals or the ground for your bot.
- Your receiver will still need a 5V supply. This is normally provided by the drive motor controllers (like tinyESCs).
- Connecting multiple things to a single source is made easier with mini terminal blocks.
Now your drive motors get full battery voltage (up to 23V), the receiver has its required 5V, and your servo is running of its optimal 9.6V!
