I am getting a pan and tilt kit from here, a problem is that, where can i download the library or the intrface to communicate from my c# code to the pan and tilt kit with servo motors?

There are many P&T kits here, and without a link or PN, it's hard to guess for sure which one you are talking about..

But, I'm assuming you're talking about this one:

The .NET library needed to interact with the PhidgetServo Controller can be downloaded directly from Phidgets':

keep in mind though, this isn't software that's a direct interface with the P&T. It's simply a demo app used to demonstrate the features of the 4-motor PhidgetServo Controller.

I think the doc sheet will help ya out a lot:

Scroll down to page 8 and you'll see a C# app. The class that you want is Phidgets.Servo:)

Hey Sunjava,

You can check out the upload section here and play around with this: http://forums.trossenrobotics.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=107 to help you get started. The demo only uses the first servo on the your board. It's using the Phidgets.Servo class.
