What's The Difference Between DC, Servo & Stepper Motors? What's The Difference Between DC, Servo & Stepper Motors? Aug 25, 2013 25/08/2013 Need a motor for your project, but not sure which type to get? We stock a few different varieties on ModMyPi, so hopefully this rundown on the dif..

This High-Torque MG996R Digital Servo features metal gearing resulting in extra high 10kg stalling torque in a tiny package! The MG996R is essentially an upgraded version of the famous MG995 servo, and features upgraded shock-proofing and a redesigned PCB and IC control system that make it much more accurate than its predecessor. The gearing and motor have also been upgraded to improve dead bandwith and centering! The unit comes complete with 30cm wire and 3 pin 'S' type female header connector that fits most receivers, including Futaba, JR, GWS, Cirrus, Blue Bird, Blue Arrow, Corona, Berg, Spektrum and Hitec.

This high-torque standard servo can rotate approximately 120 degrees (60 in each direction). You can use any servo code, hardware or library to control these servos, so it's great for beginners who want to make stuff move without building a motor controller with feedback & gear box, especially since it will fit in small places. They work great with our UltraBorg servo and ultrasonic control board, and other Raspberry Pi Motor Controllers. They're also great for the Arduino Motor Shield - or simply by wiring up Arduino with the Servo library. The MG996R Metal Gear Servo also comes with a selection of arms and hardware to get you set up nice and fast!

Wiring Guide:

Red: Battery Positive  

Brown: Battery Negative  

Orange: Signal

To control with an Arduino, we suggest connecting the orange control wire to pin 9 or 10 and using the Servo library included with the Arduino IDE (Example Sketch). Position "0" (1.5ms pulse) is middle, "90" (~2ms pulse) is all the way to the right, "-90" (~1ms pulse) is all the way to the left.
