SERVO 8 Board to Servo Motor - Interconnection Cable length

Started by djmaratt February 23, 2005


I have a question about the legth of cable from Servo 8 Board to the
Servo Motor. What is the maximum wire length that anyone has used
with out facing problems? If I use good quality wire with out too
much drop in the 5V DC Can I have a 1 Meter length for the 3 wires
that connect to the Servo Motor from the Servo 8 Board? Do I need to use any buffer/Line Driver for the signal wire if I
plan to have a 2 Meter long interconnection cable between the Servo8
board and the Servo Motors?

Thanks & Regards
