How to "size" a servo motor? Answered
I have a 28lb solar panel that I'd like to position with servo motors, but not having worked with Servos I'm having a tough time trying to understand how to size the servos that I'll need.
I'm finding a ton of "hobby"/"toy" servos that are rated at 25/30KG but am I under/over-thinking that would equate to the ability of those servos handle the full weight, if centrally positioned, of a 28lb array?
I get that if they weren't centrally positioned I'd need to figure in leverage weight multiplication, etc., but if they were positioned in the center of the array to form 2 axises would a 30KG servo be able to handle the weight of the array?
