The Pololu serial 8-servo controller allows you to control up to eight RC servos with 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 8-servo controllers can be connected to a single serial line to control up to 128 servos independently. This servo controller is compatible with our serial 16-servo controller, and dual serial motor controller.

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 more than 8 servos, you may want to consider the 16-servo version of this item.

Note: The Pololu serial 8-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 kit in robotics projects, you need to connect it to your own servos and robot controller.
