FEETECH Continuous Rotation Servo FS5106R
The FS5106R is a standard-sized servo that has been built by FEETECH specifically for continuous rotation, making it an easy way to get your robot moving. It features two ball bearings on the output shaft for reduced friction, and it offers easy access to the rest-point adjustment potentiometer.
Key specs at 6 V: 95 RPM (no-load), 83 oz-in (6 kg-cm), 40 g
The FS5106R is a standard-sized servo that has been built by FEETECH (formerly known as Fitec) specifically for continuous rotation. At 6 V, it has a maximum rotation speed of 95 RPM (no-load) and can produce up to 83 oz-in (6 kg-cm) of torque. It features two ball bearings on the output shaft for reduced friction, and it offers easy access to the rest-point adjustment potentiometer. The servo can be controlled using a direct connection to a single microcontroller I/O line without any additional electronics, which makes it a great actuator for beginner robotics projects.
The FS5106R continuous rotation servo converts standard RC servo position pulses into continuous rotation speed. The default rest point is 1.5 ms, but this can be adjusted by using a small screwdriver to turn the middle-point positioner. Pulse widths above the rest point result in counterclockwise rotation, with speed increasing as the pulse width increases; pulse widths below the rest point result in clockwise rotation, with speed increasing as the pulse width decreases.
The servo has a 12″ (300 mm) lead that is terminated with a JR-style connector and includes additional servo horns and mounting hardware. The following picture shows an example of the hardware that might be included (actual hardware could vary).
