Set On/off On Ssc-32

 
#1

How can I set the virtual ports on the SSC-32 to on or off? Doing Set(V0,On) doesn't do it which I don't get as you can control a servo using Servo(V0,90), or, like servo speed, is this not supported either?

They are not digital ports, Steve.... The ssc-32 servo controller is just that.... a servo controller... They control servos only... However, I do believe the ssc-32 can read analog input from one or more ports... I thought I saw it mentioned in the manual somewhere....

Just checked the manual... Indeed, the ssc-32 has 8 analog input pins...

Yeah just saw that about analog in the manual too. I just figured that if a servo could be controlled, so could something like a relay.

Thanks anyway.

It's possible that this relay Pico Switch might be triggered (since it is used in R/c) by servo commands... 180 activates it and below 90 deactivates it... Something like that anyway... It works with the ezb as mentioned using servo(D0,180)... Actually I am fairly certain it can... There is also a battle switch as well that can handle up to a10a load...

Thanks for the switch link. That might be worth checking out.

Have you tried Servo(V0, 1)

Servos position based on the PWM received on the signal line so a servo controller will also output the same PWM as the EZ-B would if, for instance you set the servo to position 1.

Servo() and PWM() are very similar commands. Set() on the other hand is not alike.

@Rich.

Actually no, I haven't. I'll give it a try a little later and see what happens.

Thanks.

No go using Servo().

Just tried Servo(V0,1) and nothing happened. I went up in stages of 10, and all the relay did was buzz more and more the higher I went. I tried (V0,0) as well for the hell of it, but nothing.

Never mind. Nice idea though.
