Increasing servo current?

Recommended Posts

I have hacked a servo and have it working as a proportional control for its motor, i'd like to be able to drive far bigger loads with this - is the motor speed controlled by PWM? if so can I connect motor leads to a high current H bridge ( via a diode network to pulse the 2 different pins dependant on the polarity of input power )

you are a genius ! this is perfect :)

slightly confused, it gives input from servo as:

gnd

L1 input

L2 input

should I form these using diodes?

or is this a direct + & - from the servo controller board?

According to his schematic, L1 and L2 go to the old motors leads (remove motor, connect leads to this new bridge, connect power). I have never used the circuit, but it looks fine to me.
