SSC-32U Pulse Width Modulation

A quick question. If have a couple of 270 degree servos. To get the full rotation I need to set the pulse width range in the SSC-32U configuration to 500-2500. Will this upset other standard 90 degree servos connected to the SSC-32U? The default range on the config was 650-2250, and I was only getting about 220 degrees rotation.

Problem With ARC Mobile App Latest Version

Do you know what is going on here?

question

PWM Frequency Range

What is the default PWM frequency of the EZ-B v4, and is it adjustable? I'm sorry; I should been more precise in my question. Here is what I do know; In a conventional analog servo motor a PWM signal with a period of 20 ms is used to control the motors. A signal of 20 ms has a frequency of 50 Hz. The width of the pulse is varied between 1 and 2 ms...
