ESC32 V3 Servo mode?

Postby Georgseema » Tue Aug 25, 2015 12:04 pm

Hi

I would like some more info about this feature. I'm building a robot with BL gimbal motors. The motors are also going to act as wheels. Does the servo mode allow for constant rotation?

Thanks!

Hi Georg,
here´s more info about the Servo Mode (only works with BL gimbal motors):

I did read that before...
Here is the part that confuses me. SERVO_SCALE = 360.0 deg <- Does that mean the motor can make just ONE full rotation or that the motor can continue rotating?

When considering a real servo that can do 180deg rotation. Seting SERVO_SCALE = 180deg then the BL gimbal motor should rotate only 90deg (to right and left) away from starting point/center?

Hi

This question is still up in the air. Can ESC32 servo mode allow for continous rotation?

Although it was not designed for continuous rotation, you can specify input angles > +-360 deg. For instance, if you entered -720 deg, it would turn in reverse for 2 rotations. Then enter +3600 and it would turn forward 12 complete rotations.
