What does speed motor spec mean?

  1. Jan 8, 2014 #1
    The link to the motor is here: http://www.savoxusa.com/Savox_SC1256TG_Digital_Servo_p/savsc1256tg.htm

    In the description tab, it lists all the specs. My question is in regards to the speed specs.
    e.g., "Speed(@4.8V sec/60): .18"

    I don't understand what that is saying. 0.18 what?
    0.18 sec per 60 degrees? i.e., 0.18 deg per 1 second?
    I'm assuming that's the max @ that voltage or the average?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    0.18 seconds per 60 degrees of rotation. By the way, it's a good idea always to try to imagine these rates. Try to imagine 0.18 degrees per second and you'll find it's not too likely, and not at all equivalent to 0.18 seconds per 60 degrees!
