Micro Servo

Hey guys,
Does anyone know what brand the new Micro servo that comes with the grippers is? I seized one up (or burnt it out) and need to get another one.

I'm just assuming the international shipping would be pricey so I'd like to find a substitute with the same dimmentions.

I did some looking on ebay and couldn't find one that matched the dimmentions on the EZR site so I'm wondering if anyone knows what servo they went with.

Thanks in advance.

Looking at the gripper they are selling in the shop it states that it has a HD servo motor installed not a micro servo. After reviewing the specs on EZ Robots HD servo I don't think you'll find one as reasonably prices at $12 USD. The closest one I can find to EZ Robot' s HD servo is a Futaba BLS-172SV at servo City for $219 USD. I'm not sure but if you go with a different brand then EZ Robot you may find they move at different speeds. You may need to adjust your scripts it compensate. This is just a guess as I don't own any of the revolution robots and haven't messed around with how they work yet.

My mistake. I should have been clearer. I have the grippers that came with Roli. It's an HD, metal gear micro. But thanks for the other info. It may come in handy one day:)

The grippers do use the micro servo. I don't know the brand or anything but am monitoring this as I too have one that I need to replace.

Any HD Micro servo which can handle 8.4v max will do.

Dimensions of the EZ-Robot micro HD servo are

Length: 29.11mm (not including tabs)
Width: 13.75mm
Height: 30.40mm (not including spindle)

Thanks Rich. I'll look to see what I can find.

Doing some interneting I've found that the Hitec HS-85MG Metal Gear Micro servo is the closest match at 1.14" x 0.51" x 1.18". It's just a couple mm smaller overall.

They are a bit pricey so if someone finds an alternative that works in the claw I'd like to know.:)

Thanks again guys.

The HS-85MG is only rated for up to 6vdc according to ServoCity's chart. However it is an analog servo. The HS-5070MH is rated for 7.4vdc but is digital and even more expencive then the HS-85MG. Digital is good but they are a little noisy when trying to hold position. Either way you'll want the HiTech C1 standard spline and both these have that.

15kg cm is 208.2oz in torque. Just gotta remember to convert cm to inches. So yea there are a handful of servos with that power. Like a power HD , 240 Oz in @ 6 volts. The EZ-Robot HD servo is strong and a great price! It is not as strong as a couple of these posts implied.
