5 Servo motor Controller - Manual & WIN PC Control (Serial Port & USB Adapter Available)
Images Company's SMC-05 and SMC-05A Servomotor Controllers allow Manual and PC control of five hobby servomotors (Hitec/Futaba).
Servomotors may be controlled manually, via on-board switches, or by a Windows program through a serial communication port (RS232) on a Windows 98/XP PC. Universal three position headers make it easy to connect servomotors--just plug them into the board.
Manual Control: Each servomotor is controlled using a three-position switch on the servomotor board. Each switch position controls the servomotor in the following manner: UP = clockwise, DOWN = counterclockwise, and stop is the CENTER off position. The Controller board has two preset speeds (fast and slow) that is jumper controlled. The board also has a save function that saves the servomotor's current position in its memory. This allows the servomotors to be in, or go to, the saved position on startup.
Windows PC Control: Windows 98 and Windows XP programs, (price includes CD ROM programs) see screen image, use the PC serial port to communicate to the servomotor board. Each program incorporates an adjustable servomotor speed control. Each servomotor is controlled by an individual slider. In the script writing mode every servomotor movement is automatically recorded and written into the onscreen script area. The onscreen script may be saved, loaded, played, and looped. Updated Windows PC programs are always available here for download.
USB Port Compatible using USB to Serial Adapter
The standard RS-232 port on the servomotor board may be connected to a USB port using a serial USB to Serial port adapter, see below. This allows normal program operation and functions through USB port.
