InMoov Project Part 4 - External Potentiometer with quick disconnect


#1

Original Article Date: November 27, 2017

After I removed the Potentiometers from the HiTech HS-805BB Servos I decided to make them with a quick disconnect making for easy replacement if needed. For this I just used a servo extension and cut it in half, I then put half on the servo and have on the potentiometer. I also had to reverse the polarity on a few of the potentiometers that will work in sync with another in various parts of the robot. To do this I just switched the two outside wires on the potentiometer.

Below is a photo showing them all soldered up and complete.
