Hitech Develops Servos for Robots

Posted 6 Feb 2006 at 22:30 UTC by steve Share This

It hasn't gone unnoticed by RC servo manufacturers how many servos are ending up in robots these days. Hitech has developed a new line of servos designed specifically for robots. A short Robot Magazine review gives an overview and provides photos and specs for the new servos. The new Hitech servo line addresses the main problem with using hobby servos in robots - the short lifetime that results from heavy use. Hitech's HSR-5995TG Robot Servo has titanium gears, hardened steel gear pins, and produces 416 oz-in of torque with a holding power of 541 oz-in (at 7.4v). The servos are also available in models with shafts extending from both sides of the servo. More details can be found in the Hitech 2006 Robotics Catalog (PDF format).
