Servo switch modules

Postby Stevolution » Tue Mar 06, 2012 2:26 pm

Hi all
Anyone had experience with servo switch modules?

Such as.... http://www.active-robots.com/radio/radi ... witch.html

What I cannot work out is whether they toggle the output. You set the position you want them to operate at using the preset... OK not a problem.
So lets say I set it to full right servo operation. When I push my control stick fully right, it will switch on the module.

But... does it stay switched on when I leave that position, or does it turn off as soon as I leave that position.
If it stays on, then you would need to go back to the full stick position to toggle it back off again.

Hope that makes sense :shock:

My reading of the specifications is that the outputonly stays switched on as long as the transmitter control is in the desired, programmed position. I.e. it's a momentary not latching switch. If you want a latching capability you need something like the SubTech SFS2 Single Function Switch or DFS2 Dual Function Switch.
