View Full Version : Reset a Servo?

If you issue the following PBASIC command, the servo will turn to it's mid point:

PULSOUT rx_tiltServo, 750

Is it possible to somehow move the servo to some position and make it use that as it's mid point?

The reason I am asking is because I built a pan/tilt mechanism, but the servo that tilts up and down does not have it's mid point where I wanted it. I can take the whole thing apart and fix it, but if there is a way to handle this in code or adjust the servo, I would like to do that instead. Thanks!

You have to figure out the pulse width for the "mid-point" you want, give that width a constant name like "Center" and use that



Center = 755

PULSOUT rx_tiltServo,Center
PULSOUT rx_tiltServo,Center+10
PULSOUT rx_tiltServo,Center-10
