Since finding data on stalled and in use under load (not free) amp draw for servos seems impossible, I want to build/create my own servo tester.
All I really want to know is how much amps the servo is drawing at idle, at movement under load, and at stalled/full position. I think that should cover all the bases relative to amp usage on the servo but if not, please let me know what I am missing.
Here are my questions:
I am going to need a power supply for an exact 4.8V and 6.0V since that seems to be the standard measurement voltages.
I'll need some way to accurately measure the amp draw.
I'll need some way to control the servo movement.
Is that it? What am I missing and if anyone has any suggestions please let me know and thanks for the help. This seems to be uncharted waters for those in the RC hobby area but someone in the robotics field may have been down this path.
