Hello all,

Sorry for the basic question, but can I replace my analog HS-805BB with a digital HS-7955TG.
I'm using the Phidgets Advanced 8 motor servo card.

Any side effects? Is the connector the same? (cant find any pictures...anywhere)

Thanks,

Nat

Yes. And No. ;)

The 805bb is a quarter scale servo. Any brackets holding it, any spacing between them, etc. wouldn't fit.

The HS-5745 is the digital replacement for the 805BB.

Other than that, yes, the connector is the same configuration, the range and resolution might be a little different necessitating a software change, but it's electrically compatible.

Hey great news...thanks!

No problem on the mounting, I can re-do that.

Thanks again,

Nat
