• Torque up to 4100gf.cm
• 170° of rotation
• Compact size to fit small projectsWhy use a servo?
Servos are used in robotics, hobbies and modelling applications where precision and control are needed. The Futaba S3003 is designed for use in radio controlled boats and cars but has a wide range of other possible uses. The set comes with multiple parts to customise the servo including arms, screws and grommets.
What can this servo do?
The Futaba S3003 can be driven by a PICAXE chip or other microcontroller system. With a 4.8V power supply, it would be ideal for use with Arduino or Raspberry Pi projects. The three wire system requires 5Vdc on the red wire, 0V on the black wire and a 3V to 5V pulse on the white wire between 0.75 and 2.25ms long every 18ms approx. The servo has rotation speeds of up to 0.23 sec/60° at max efficiency and 170 °of rotation. With its high torque of up to 4100gf.cm (gram-force cm), small size of just 40mm x 20mm x 36mm and light weight of 44.2g, this is a great addition to any project.
