I hope you all will be absolutely fine and having fun. Today, I would like to provide a complete discussion on Servo Motor Control using myRIO. In this tutorial I will tell you about the control of a servo motor using NI myRIO. First of all, I will give you a brief introduction on servo motors and then we will proceed towards their interfacing with myRIO. Servo motor is an electronic device with a small output shaft. This shaft can be adjusted at different angles for the different purposes. We can adjust this shaft by sending a signal usually known as servo coded signal. Servo motor is able maintain a particular angle as long as it has the servo coded signal at its input.

Servo motor changes the angular position of its shaft with every change in the servo coded signal applied at its input. I have already designed and shared Servo Motor Control in Proteus. If you are using the servo motor for the first time then you must go through this tutorial. This design is always helpful to the beginners. In my previous tutorial I have controlled DC motor using NI myRIO. DC motor is a simple device having two input terminals. We just have to supply voltage at its terminals and it starts rotating in either direction depending upon the polarity of the applied voltage. Whereas, servo motor has three input terminals, two terminals are for the power supply and one is for sending servo coded signal to rotate at specific angle and in specific direction as well. If some electrical projects require some mobile (move able/not static) tasks, servo motor will be the better option. It is easily available in the market and has a low cost. There are a lot of real life applications associated with servo motors. For example, robotics, elevators, air crafts, remote controlled appliances, vehicles, solar tracking system, automated baby cradle system, conveyor belts system and a lot more. The further detail about servo motor control using myRIO will be given later in this tutorial.

Servo Motor Control using myRIO

Servo Motor is a device with a small output shaft. It has three input terminals. Two terminals are for the power supply and the third is for sending the servo coded signal. The electrical or electronics projects where there is a need of motion, servo will be the best option in this case. The shaft of the servo motor changes its position corresponding to the servo coded signal applied at its input. It has a wide range of applications including robotics, automated baby cradle, solar tracking systems, elevators etc. Servo motor is shown in the figure given below.

  1. Hi Mr. Syed
    The link to download the VI (wiring diagram) is not working.
    Hope that you can enable the download button or email to me the VI. really need it.
    Thank you

  2. Dear staff of Theengineeringprojects,

    I am Intho N. Syuhri. I want to ask about the download link. I can not download the file.
    I want to try your code. I did try the Guide demo servo from ni.com. The result is my servo cannot stop.
    So right now, I want to ask why I cannot download the file?

    Thank you,
    best regards,
    Intho N. Syuhri.
