Servo For Jd Gripper

Hi;

I did something wrong with the servo for JD Gripper, it is not working any more. I want to buy a new servo. I knew that it is avilable on EZ-Robot site. But I do not want to order from there and wait long time to have it. Can any one help me to buy similler one from ebay or any US vender.

Thank you,

You really should order from EZ Robot for warranty reasons if nothing else... However, if you are in a real hurry a TowerPro 996r or TowerPro 946r probably could be a ok substitute... eBay has lots of them....

Unfortunately, the TowerPro 996 and 946 are too large for the JD gripper. Another thing to keep in mind is that the claw servo is a special servo designed to run at 7.4V.

@RoboticMayor I would recommend ordering directly from us and we should be able to help you out. Please Contact Us instead of ordering through the website.

Edit: Sorry Richard caught his mistake before I could point it out, lol. Although a MG90S micro servo is actually too small.

@Jeremie... Thanks... I don't deserve this credit... However, I did mention he should buy from you guys....:)

@RoboticMayor... Although you might be able to substitute EZ Robot's heavy duty standard size servos with MG996R or MG9946R, their claw servo is a different story... I really think you should purchase the EZ Robot claw servo so as to ensure compatibility with your JD.... Sorry about the mix up....

HiRichard,

I used Contact Us as Jeremie said to order this servo from EZ-Robot. I was just afraid from their time frame. The JD I have, I got it from http://www.robotshop.com/ in one week because I am still waiting for the one I ordered from EZ-Robot since March 06, 2014.

Thank you

Tonight I lost both my claw servos while doing auto postioning, you can smell the smoke. Any ideas as to the why?
So what servo will fit in to replace, 19 for a servo or 22 for a whole claw. Don't need all the extra claw parts of this happens a lot.
Options and ideas?
Thanks

Hi @Roller

The claw servos aren't designed to be held under pressure for prolonged periods. I guess that really goes for any servo. If a servo is held in a position that it can't physically get to, there is the risk of damage.
