Maestro USB Servo Controllers

Pololu Maestro USB servo controllers offer industry-leading resolution and stability for precise, jitter-free control of your RC servos. Unique features include separate speed settings for each servo, the ability to turn servos off, and advanced mapping of low-resolution commands for optimal range and resolution. The following video gives a brief introduction to our Maestro controllers and demonstrates some of their versatility:

2 The available pulse rate and range depend on each other and factors such as baud rate and number of channels used.
3 The user script system is more powerful on the Mini Maestro than on the Micro Maestro.

The Micro and Mini Maestros are available with through-hole connectors preinstalled or as partial kits, with the through-hole connectors included but not soldered in. The preassembled versions are appropriate for those who want to be able to use the product without having to solder anything or who are happy with the default connector configuration, while the partial kit versions enable the installation of custom connectors, such as right-angle headers that allow servos to be plugged in from the side rather than the top, or colored header pins that make it easier to tell which way to plug in the servo cables.
