Thread: AX12A power consumption

    AX12A power consumption

    Does anyone know or know how to determine the power draw for AX12A servos that aren't being driven? I.e. set with torqueEnabled = false. We're powering the Master arm with 4 AX12As and trying to determine how much capacity we need in a 12V battery pack. These are connected to the same serial chain as the slave for Gnd and Signal but powered separately using this the 6 Port AX/MX Power Hub from Trossen.

    Hook up an amp meter in series with the battery.
