Servo Power Module Basics

The REV Servo Power Module (REV-11-1144) is a 6V 90W power injector that enables the use of high-power RC servos in applications where a robot controller cannot provide adequate power.

How to Use

Electrical Connections

The Servo Power Module has two screw terminals for 12V power input. It is recommended to use ring or fork terminals designed for #6 or M3 screw terminals.
Using an appropriate wire gauge, 18 AWG or larger, tightly crimp either a ring or fork terminal on the wire. Insert the crimped terminal into the screw terminal and tighten the screw.
The input and output channels accept standard 3-wire 0.1” pitch servo/PWM cables. Please refer to the figure above or the case markings for proper orientation.

Status LEDs

Each channel has a corresponding status LED that will indicate the sensed state of the connected PWM signal. The table below describes each state’s corresponding LED pattern.

Over-Current Shutdowns

If the Servo Power Module detects a total output current larger than 15A it will enter a shutdown mode where the 6V output is disabled until the over-current condition has remedied. While in shutdown the blue power LED will turn off, dim, or flicker indicating the over-current condition is still present.
In the case of frequent over-current shutdowns, ensure that the total stall current of all connected servos does not exceed 15A.
