Hello!

I have a question about the servo controller unit, when I connect 5 volt to it, nothing happens shouldn`t the LED illuminate? I haven`t connected it to anything but power yet though.

And how come you have to place +, -, and signal to the servo controller input? It already has power... Shouldn`t that be enough?

Thank you!

The power input blocks on the PSC are for the servo power. The PSC Logic Control Circuitry gets it's power from the serial connection cable to the BASIC Stamp Board. There should be - + S, where - is connected to Vss, + is connected to Vdd (5V) and S is connected to the I/O pin that controls the PSC.
