The KST Servo Programming Tool #1 is used for programming KST V6 and V8 servos without the need for a PC or other computer.
This tool has a simple press-button interface that allows the servo mid point and end points to be set. It also allows the direction of rotation to be reversed.
1.1. When using with KST X08 and X10 servos power the Tool#1 using any 4.8V to 8.4V DC power source with an XT60 plug (eg a 2S LiPo battery). The exact same output voltage that is fed into the tool is output to the servo, so using a 3S or higher voltage LiPo will irretrievably damage any X08 or X10 servo. The tool DOES NOT regulate the voltage down to a safe level for the servo.
1.2. The voltage input needs to be set according to the working voltage range of different models of KST servos. Do not input high voltage at will. The correct voltage must be used in order not to burn the servo out. For example: if programming a KST X08 V6 servo, the working voltage range is 3.8V – 8.4V, so the input voltage range must be 4.8V-8.4V DC. Alternatively if programming a KST X20-12-M 835-1 servo the working voltage range is 9-13V, so the input voltage range must be 8.4V DC.
2. Output interface: There are two rows of contacts, for programming one servo. The second row is spare. To connect the servo, orient the servo plug so the orange wire is aligned to the "S" mark, and the brown wire to the "-" mark.
-- = servo negative = brown
+ = servo positive = red
S = servo PWM signal = orange
3. Power-on and setting operation steps
4. Use of "CW/CCW" button
5. The Reset button. The Reset button only resets the Tool#1, and does not reset the connected servo.
