Re: Output use of PG 508 Pulses

Kurt Rosenfeld

Connecting the PG508 to the scope and the servo in parallel should be fine. I would connect it to the scope first to get the PWM voltage right, since the PG508 is capable of voltages outside of what most servos are expecting. After you have the PG508's output voltage set, then add the servo. I wouldn't expect the servo to significantly load the 50-ohm output of the PG508. Also beware of driving the servo with a weak power supply. It can make for flaky behavior. (How do I know this?)
