Servo Motor Connection

Lenze Drive

Connecting a servo motor typically involves several steps. Here's a general guide by CM Industry Supply Automation (Lenze Drive & Keb Drive Supplier)

Identify the Servo Motor Leads: Servo motors usually have three wires: power (usually red), ground (usually brown or black), and control (usually orange, yellow, or white).

Power Supply: Determine the voltage requirement of your servo motor. Most hobbyist servo motors operate at 4.8V to 6V, but industrial ones may require higher voltages. Connect the red wire to the positive terminal of your power supply and the brown or black wire to the negative terminal.

Control Signal: The control wire is used to send signals to the servo to determine its position. Connect this wire to a PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) output pin on your microcontroller or servo controller.

Ground Connection: Connect the ground wire (brown or black) from the servo to the ground (GND) pin on your microcontroller or servo controller. This completes the circuit.

Code: Write or use a program to send appropriate PWM signals to the servo motor. The PWM signal determines the angle or position of the servo shaft.

Test and Adjust: Once everything is connected, test your setup. You may need to adjust the PWM signal parameters in your code to get the desired rotation or movement from the servo motor.

Remember to consult the datasheet of your specific servo motor as available on CM Industry Supply Automation (Lenze Drive & Keb Drive Supplier) for any special considerations or voltage requirements. Also, ensure that your power supply can deliver enough current to drive the servo motor effectively.
