  • Rev Smart Servo Question

    In continuous operation is it possible to read the position of the motor shaft in a similar fashion to the encoders on other REV motors? I looked online and could not find a definitive answer. My initial thought is that you cannot but I wanted to open up for other opinions / suggestions.

    No you cannot read the position. Some servos have a feedback wire from a potentiometer that gives you the position in PWM format, but even those won't work because REV/MR hardware does not provide a way to read the PWM signal.

      Thanks. That supports my initial thoughts. External encoder would be the solution I guess.
