Re: Question about about servos (jitter/buzzing/struggling)

I won't be able to see the video until I get home tonight. What happens if you take the current sense out of the circuit and shunt it? I'm wondering if is creating enough IR drop on the power rail to the servo to cause the servo to get squirrelly This buzz occurred even before I added the sensor. I...

Re: Question about about servos (jitter/buzzing/struggling)

Do you have a scope to see if the control output is jittering? If you dampen the servo output with a finger, do they settle down? Is you program continually writing to the port, or does it only write when a change needs to be made? Nope. Pushing them to relieve stress stops the buzzing, but it is a...

Re: Question about about servos (jitter/buzzing/struggling)

Thanks for replying, but I strongly don't believe that is the issue. The arm can move to the full extent of its motion without reaching the limits of the servos. There is additional room and I have to make sure to use values which don't exceed that range of motion. For instance, if the specific serv...

Question about about servos (jitter/buzzing/struggling)

Greetings, Recently bought a meArm. I'm using MG90S 9g metal gear micro servos and a PCA9685 16-Channel 12-bit driver. One thing that concerns me about this arm is the servos sometimes are in a position where they buzz. They buzz even when not under any stress. Though sometimes they don't buzz in ce...

GPIO protection module advice?

Greetings, Short and simple, I'm working on a project that let the public poke around an RPi unsurprised. They can't add anything to the project however, so we'll be working with 5v at the most to power some senors etc. Obviously, I have a need to protect the public from shorting out the board; whet...

Re: Mini desktop build + audio interference question

Did some testing. I thought it could be a grounding issue... Grounded the pi directly to the DC converters IN, OUT, and the 12v power adapters negative. The noise did get quieter, but it was still squealing and not much better than before. I thought it could be a bad/cheap power supply. Tried a 250w...
