Motors • Servo Motors

Classified as a small, brushless motor, servo motors feature a built-in, automatic speed control device – typically an encoder or resolver – that stabilizes motor rotation. Servo motors are commonly used for motion control in robots and hard disc drives. When used with a hard drive, a servo motor moves the read/write heads to specified locations above spinning data-storage disks. Servo motors also move satellite dish feed horns so they are positioned to the polarity of a satellite signal. Three basic types of servo motors are used in modern servosystems including AC servo motors, DC servo motors, and AC brushless servo motors. Another servo motor type is the RC servo motor, which is a small box designed for use in hobby airplanes and cars. Servo motors are generally designed like an alternator, with most motors needing special control circuitry for electrical rotation.
