Arduino Servo Motor

Finally had a chance to hook up a small servo motor to an Arduino Uno board and get it working. I bought these components with the goal of learning more about the operation of servo motors, particularly for motion control and automation purposes.


Instead of using the standard Arduino IDE software, I am running my Arduino using LabVIEW to take advantage and to further develop my skills with this software.


Initially, I was having trouble getting the servo motor working properly. After troubleshooting, I found that the power supplied to the Arduino through the USB cable was not enough to power both the board and the servo motor. As you can see in the first image above, I had to add an additional power source using a 9V battery.
