Parallax Feedback 360° High-Speed Servo
The Parallax Feedback 360° provides the functionality of a light-duty standard servo, a continuous rotation servo, a high-speed servo, and encoder feedback in one convenient package. Its speed is controlled with standard RC servo pulses, just like a typical continuous rotation servo, and it provides a return signal line from an internal Hall effect sensor that provides digital angular position feedback. An external microcontroller can use this signal to make the servo hold any angle, much like a standard servo except without any limits on the range of motion, or it can use it for closed-loop speed control. Recommended operating voltage range is 5.8 V to 8.4 V
Key specs at 6 V: 140 RPM (no-load), 35 oz-in (2.5 kg-cm), 41 g, CCW rotation for pulse widths above the rest point.

- What are the wires coming out of my servo?
Most standard radio control (RC) servos have three wires, each a different color. Usually, they are either black, red, and white, or they are brown, red, and orange/yellow:
- brown or black = ground (GND, battery negative terminal)
- red = servo power (Vservo, battery positive terminal)
- orange, yellow, white, or blue = servo control signal line
Please check the specs for your servo to determine the proper power supply voltage, and please take care to plug the servo into your device in the proper orientation (plugging it in backwards could break the servo or your device).
Note: Some of the servos we carry also have an optional fourth green wire that is separate from the three standard ones. This wire provides access to the feedback potentiometer, allowing you to directly measure the position of the output. The servos with this extra wire have "with Position Feedback" at the ends of their product names. The picture below is an example of such a servo.
