    Kitronik Simple Servo Control Board for Micro:bit

    Manufacturer: Kitronik
    Bring your imagination to life. Simple and uncluttered control of up to 3 servos with the Kitronik :CREATE Simple Servo Control Board for BBC micro:bit. The Simple Servo Control Board offers a simple interface between the BBC micro:bit and up to 3 servos. The board features an edge connector for the micro:bit to slot into and in addition to the servo pin header connections, there are also 6 croc-clippable pads for adding additional devices.

    The servo pin header connections are on a 0.1 inch (2.54mm) pitch and are labelled on the board as; Power, Ground and Signal. The 6 croc-clippable pads, at the bottom of the board, break out the P0, P1, P2 pins from the micro:bit. There are also pads for 3.3V and GND, with the final pad (Switch A) which allows for connecting an external switch.

    The board is powered from 3x AA batteries (with attached battery cage) which powers the servo’s and is regulated to the required voltage to power a BBC micro:bit. The board includes a power switch to turn the servo’s and BBC micro:bit on or off. The power LED at the top of the board indicates when the board is active. The simple servo control board has mounting lugs on either side. They have been designed for use with elastic bands so that the board can be connected to your project without the need for tools.

    Code it with MakeCode: Kitronik has created custom blocks for the Simple Servo board for use with MakeCode. To add these blocks, first go to MakeCode. and start a new project. Under the “Advanced” section click on “Extensions”. In the next window search for “Simple Servo”. Once the icon appears, click on the icon to import it into MakeCode.
    Code it with MicroPython: Kitronik has created example code for initialising and controlling the servos for the Simple Servo Board. The class code can be found at the GitHub page. For more information, please see the Datasheet below

    Kitronik Clippable Servo

    KI 25105
    Kitronik's new clippable servo has had the standard pin header replaced with super useful crocodile clips. This allows it to be used in projects that feature other clippable connection points, such as projects utilising the Kitronik Klip Motor Driver.

    The 180 degree rotation servo is based on the Feetech FS90MG-CL and features metal gears, which are more reliable and hard-wearing than their plastic counterparts. The servo is rated to operate between 4.8V - 6V, which gives output Torque of between 1.8kg - 2.2kg respectively. If the clippable servo is being used in micro:bit projects, a separate power supply is required. If you are using the Kitronik Klip Motor Driver, the power can be taken directly from the Klip motor driver board.

    The servo can rotate approx. 180 degrees, or approx. 90 in each direction, and it can be driven with any standard 180 degree servo code/libraries. It can be coded using the MakeCode or Python editors which makes it ideal for novice or expert level microbit projects.

    The servos are supplied with four horns and the associated fixings which should allow you to slot these servos into your projects with relative ease and without the need to make custom horns.

    Note: This servo requires a separate power supply from the controlling micro:bit. Attempting to power this servo directly from the micro:bit is likely to cause permanent damage to the micro:bit.

    Features:
  • The clippable servo has had the standard pin header replaced with super useful crocodile clips.
  • Small and compact yet high power output, 1.8kg of Torque at 4.8V and 2.2kg at 6V.
  • Metal gears for strength and durability.
  • It can be coded using the MakeCode or Python editors
  • Suitable for RC models and Robotics projects.
  • 180 degrees of rotation, 90 in each direction.
  • Operating Voltage of 4.8V - 6V.
  • It can be used with Kitronik clippable micro:bit accessories, such as the Kitronik Klip Motor Driver.

  • Contents:
  • 1 x Kitronik Clippable Servo with 4 horns and fixings.

  • Dimensions:
  • For Servo dimensions, please see the Technical Drawing.
  • Lead Length: 250mm.
  • Clip Length: 34mm.
