Quickstart – No Computer Kit

  1. Connect the power supply wire by loosening the 2 screws (counterclockwise). The wires should side into the terminals easily so you can tighten them down. Red goes to positive (+) and black goes to negative (-). Give the wires a tug once you connect them to make sure they aren’t going to pull out. *IMPORTANT – make sure these wires do not get shorted/crossed as it could damage your power source.
  2. Connect up to 6 servo socks making sure the orange (signal) is connected to the white pin.
  3. Once powered up the knobs move the servo disc, the button under each knob sets it to the centre position
  4. Connect to a USB power supply such as a phone charger, portable battery etc. We do not recommend connecting to electronic equipment (ie laptop) as it could draw too much power and damage the device.

  2. Connect up to 24 servo socks making sure the orange (signal) is connected to the white pin.
  3. If you wish to use the included wireless PS2 controller, connect the wireless dongle to the board as shown. Please refer to the PDF link below to detailed docs.
  4. Connect to a power supply via 2.1mm connector or use the included USB cable to supply with USB power. Please note that most USB power supplies only provide up to 2 Amps which is only enough to run 4-5 servo socks. If you plan to use more, the 2.1mm connection to a larger power supply or battery is recommended.

Fat Popsicle Sticks

Our fat popsicle sticks make interfacing servo socks with whatever you want to make move easier, the holes in the sticks line up with the holes in the servo socks discs which can be attached using glue or 3/8″ #6 screws.

If you want to mount one on both sides/discs of a servo sock, you can push a short pencil into the larger holes to bridge them.

The rectangular holes allow for popsicle sticks to be pushed through as well.
