Get position of standard servo motor shaft in degrees
Measure the angle of a standard servo motor shaft in degrees, from 0 to 180.
The data type of the block output is uint8.
If you run a simulation of a model that contains this block without the target hardware, this block outputs zeroes. See Block Produces Zeros or Does Nothing in Simulation.
Do not use Servo blocks with External mode.
If you use this block in models with the Serial Receive and Serial Transmit blocks, use longer sample times to avoid overruns.
The maximum number of Servo blocks per model is 12 for Arduino Uno / Nano hardware, and 48 for Arduino Mega 2560 hardware.
With Arduino Uno hardware, the Arduino PWM block cannot use digital pins 9 or 10 when the model contains Servo blocks.
With Arduino Nano hardware, the Arduino PWM block cannot use digital pins 9 or 10 when the model contains Servo blocks.
With Arduino Mega 2560 hardware, the Arduino PWM block cannot use digital pins 11 or 12 when the model contains more than 12 Servo blocks.
Enter the number of the digital pin.
Do not assign the same pin number to multiple blocks within the model.
If you set the Target hardware parameter to:
Arduino Mega 2560, enter a pin number from 0 to 53.
Arduino Uno, enter a pin number from 0 to 13.
Arduino Nano, enter a pin number from 0 to 13.
Specify how often this block reads the pin value. Enter a value greater than zero. This value defaults to a sample time of 1 seconds. The minimum value is 0.000001 second.
Smaller values require the processor to complete the same number of instructions in less time, which can cause task overruns.
