Servo Motor Generic Metal Gear (Micro Size)
Projectcircuito teamSun Aug 26 2018

 servo motor is a linear or rotary actuator with a rotation detector (encoder) mounted on the back shaft side to detect the position and speed of the rotor. The servo motor is not a specific type of motor but rather a combination of a DC motor coupled with a control unit and encoder.


  • Versatility
  • Easy to control and program via digital output
  • High Precision
  • does not require control loop computations


  • High power draw
  • Usually more expensive than other motors
  • Not suitable for heavy loads (when plastic gear)
