The Turnigy 760HV servo tester was custom designed to be the most accurate and accommodating servo tester available. It's quality case design reflects the thought and design of this device.
Designed to handle Narrow (760us/560Hz) and Normal (1520us/66.6Hz) pulse servos plus being able to run with as little as 3v up to 12.6v. Making this a servo tester you can use with almost any servo!
The 760HV's versatility comes from the high-spec potentiometer and it's high-end NEC chip which can handle low(3v) and high(12.6v) voltages.
Spec. Servo Type: (760us/560Hz) or (1520us/66.6Hz) HV or Standard Input voltage: DC3~12.6V (1~3S Lipoly) Plug: Futaba & JR Weight: 35g Dimensions: 63x55x21mm Attention:Do not input a voltage that is higher than your servo can handle.
Note: Servo tester is available in two colours. We are unable to guarantee the item will be either color, RED & BLACK with the reverse combination of the same colors of the excisting one shown in the photo!
There are three modes - Manual, Center and Auto. In Manual you can turn the dial and move the servos one direction or the other. In Center the servos are automatically centered and you cannot move them by turning the dial. In thew Auto mode the servos start moving from one end point to the other automatically, the dial only changes the speed of the movement. The button is used to change between modes.
I do not recommend!
You must use a battery with a voltage compatible with your servos (usually 5 ~ 6V) or you will burn them. I'm using my ESC while awaiting the "4 x AA Battery Holder" to form a beautiful and practical set with the 760LV-HV.
Actually.... you can use a battery right up to a 6s as it will handle 5V up to 22V input. I have used 3S and 6s for setting up my servos and using this as a power jack for setting up an ESC and it works well.
Just order a cheap BEC with it and some XT60 plugs. Preferable one that you can switch with a jumper to 5 or 6 Volts. I allways have a BEC connected to it, so I can use it with any Lipo that I have laying around.
if you put to high of voltage in these you burned them up. most servos use up to 6 volts some hv go 7.4 volts so if you put in 11.1 volts in you fried
them. stay with the same volts as your servos call for. not any more.
I have ran into a servo that does full rotation and would work, but again this was a traxxas server and it seemed to work on load bearing rather then points. meaning if i removed the servo arm gear, it would continue to rotate until you apply pressure to the gear. The further you take the servo to left or right from center, the more pressure is required to hold that position. so all in all, i do beleave this will work exactly as a reciver would with your servo. I have tested a few 100 different
Despite the spec.max.battery 12V, could I use it for a big motor as the Turnigy 80cc equivalent and its 200amp ESC,with 6S battery? Or do you have a suggestion to control that kind of motor for scooter application. Many thanks and appreciated for any answer.
To me it sounds like you are using this as a throttle application to adjust the output of a motor on a scooter you ride? if so you sure can. in this application, the only thing you would be powering off the BEC would be this device. so the setup i would guess is the 6s to the ESC, BEC to this servo tested long with signal to ESC and ESC to motor tied to your Scooter. I see no problem as using this as a throttle control in that manner.
could i feed a esc power 12v through this and control the frequency ? and will it take a fully charged 12v lead acid battery power ? which can be upto 14.8v thx im looking for something to control a esc to supply power to a hho generator ultimitly i want to control the amps going through and freq thx
Hello Bananabender ! the best for you is to use the 5V of your ESC to power the tester. Then, whatever is the Voltage that you use on your ESC/motor, the tester will always send 5V pulses to the ESC, and you don't risk to kill your tester !
760us (higer frequency) is only for digital servo, so if you don't have digital servo, you must use 1520us (lower frequency).
The turnigy servo tester works very well, but you need to take in consideration the above and the voltage input for don't burn your servos.
the great thing i like is the centering part. i just hooked it up to my airlorn servos and when centered set up the linkage no problem. just hope it is the same center when i plug in to the rec. and turn the trans. on allen
Could i use this to test my motor with an esc connected to this tester while this is run off my reciever that is powered by another esc and since the servo tester is connected to the reciever could i plug it into a third channel and then turn off the tester with the third channel wich would turn off the motor???
1: Yes you can power this tester using the power from your receiver connected to another ESC.
2: "NO" you cannot control the tester from your receiver when it is connected to a channel. This tester generates its own PWM pulses and does not accept input from other R/C devices (even though it has 3 pins, the control pin for the power is definitely not connected to anything)

Other than an esc between the battery and the tester, what else can I use to not input a higher voltage to the servos. I just realized I was doing this by plugging a battery directly and some servos were getting very hot. I would like to check if it's the voltage directly from the battery that's causing this. So this is the reason I'm asking. Thanks.
Oh yeah, it would be nice if they also painted the letters white so you can read the three modes easier. This also comes with bright blue LEDs. I hate the blue but at least they point to the side of the tester.
Works well on Digital servos but when connecting HK analog servos they nearly had a heart attack. I use to check arm position and centralize the servo when in the plane to set linkages. Save having to connect the RX, switch & battery each time.
The input is for power from a receiver battery. The signal connection is not used on the input terminal. Power runs straight though the input to the output terminals. If you want to connect an ESC to the tester then use one of the "outputs" of the tester so that the ESC can provide power to the tester, and the tester can provide a signal path to the ESC.
The s connecting is the signal wire for the Serbia there are 3 wires on a servo just plug the dam lead into it it is usually the white wire not the black wire or the red so that leave one left it maybe white or yell o
*Tarmo There is another product for changing servo speed**
TSSR-3 = Turnigy 3 Channel Servo Speed/Direction Regulator Just mount in plane ,car or boat.
I have it and find it works great. It increases servo travel time and can reverses the direction of a servo.
I don't fly.. Yet.. I actually got the tester to work something out with my RC car.. I had initially thought the servo was spoilt or something.. Rather new to this world of RC and am rather noob at alot of things. Forgive me if I do something dumb around here. :p Enlighten me.. How DO you guys power the tester?
The specs say (760us/560Hz) or (1520us/66.6Hz) HV or Standard. But on the side photo i only see an option for the 760 and 1520. Will this work with standard servos (how?) or it's only for digital servos?
It works with any kind of servo! And not just servos... anything to be attached to a servo tray: escs, brushless motors (when using with an esc), smoke pumps... it just replaces your radio signal. And you can use it with Lipo packs as well (provided you use a 'connection cable')... (and make sure you use only 2S packs).
Works as stated. In auto mode the movement is very slow and progressive. Manual pot. realy smooth. Very good idea of the centering mode.

A wonderful product from Turnigy. Very good finish. Servos could be tested with 1S lipo but ESCs required atleast a 2S to operate. Does not come with cables. I had to grind my plastic 3 pin connecter to fit into the socket. Havent used the 760us mode, as its for digital servos.

These Servo-Testers are real workhorses and great for finding servo faults or centering before install.
