Servo Rotation Programming
Hi my name is Evan Rogers, I am apart of the Marble Falls BEST Robotic Team. I have a question concerning the rotation of the Servo. So far the Servo goes at a rotation of about 120, but we want the Servo to rotate a full 180. How do we do that or what is the Programming that we need in order to make the Servo Rotate a full 180?

Re: Servo Rotation Programming
The servo can go 120 in either direction. It's natural position is 0, which is exactly in the center. so when you give your servo a power of 50, it will go 50 to the right and stay there. When you give it -50, it will go 50 to the left and stay there. You have to start off at -60 and then turn to +120 if you want a 180 degree turn angle.

Re: Servo Rotation Programming
I am new to programming servo in RobotC too, but I read the RobotC function library help and it said the servo array takes a value between 0 and 255. So I tried it out. I coded the following:
 Code:while (true){    servo[servoArm] = 0;    wait1Msec(2000);    servo[servoArm] = 128    wait1Msec(2000);    servo[servoArm] = 255;    wait1Msec(2000);}

This code basically set the servo to 0-degree, 90-degree and then 180-degree and paused 2 seconds in between. It worked as expected.
