The Pololu serial 16-servo controller allows you to control up to sixteen RC servos from almost any robot controller or computer. The interface to the servo controller is a standard RS-232 serial port or a TTL-level serial line, using any baud rate between 1200 and 38400 baud. Multiple servo controllers can be connected to a single serial line, and they are compatible with our serial 8-servo controller, micro dual serial motor controller and dual serial motor controller, so that an almost arbitrary number of servos and motors can be controlled with one serial line.

This servo controller is also compatible with the Scott Edwards Mini SSC II servo controller and any software written for it. You can purchase the servo controller as a kit so you can assemble it yourself (which requires soldering), or you can purchase a pre-assembled servo controller that is soldered and tested for you.

If you are interested in controlling fewer than 9 servos, you may want to consider the 8-servo version of this item.

Note: The Pololu serial 16-servo controller is a kit; before using it, you need to assemble the controller by soldering its components onto its circuit board. You can also purchase an assembled, tested kit. To use the servo controller in robotics projects, you need to connect it to your own servos and robot controller.
