Steering gear
- May 11, 2018 -

From the structure analysis, the steering gear includes a small DC motor, plus a sensor, a control chip, a reduction gear set, and is integrated into an integrated housing. The rotation angle can be controlled by the input signal (usually a PWM signal and also a digital signal).

Because it is a simplified version, the three-loop control of the original servo motor is simplified into a ring, that is, only the position loop is detected. The low-cost solution is a potentiometer that is sensed by a resistor. Advanced solutions use Hall sensors or grating encoders.

Many of the servos used for the model are plastic housings and plastic gear sets. For example, the famous steering gear SG90, commonly known as 9g steering gear (because the weight is 9g).
