    Servo Tempurature

    Ok, so I finally got the mech's legs built. I was playing with the sequence software, and part of it was doing some extended duration single leg stands (kinda have to to play with poses of course :P)

    So, I was just wondering how hot some of your servos get. One of the knee servos in the leg got up to 150 degrees F (measured by an IR thermometer). Is that normal? Or would that fall under the "abuse of a servo"?

    They are HSR5990TG servos, so I am assuming that if I was really bad with them their thermal cutout would kick in.

    Wow. I'm getting nervous on another project that my 645MG is heating up 8degF over ambient after 10mins... 150 seems pretty cookin', unless you're in a 120deg room, I suppose.

    Warning: I blew out a 5995 ankle servo working on my walking gate. SUPPORT YOUR MECH while your posing it. Don't let it balance on one leg too long. This is a very serious set back for me, big enough that it might put me out of the competition.

    Thanks, Connor
