I currently have a push solenoid connected to my standard Arduino board. The Arduino is powered via its USB cable, while the solenoid is powered using a 12V Huawei adapter (in conjunction with a MOSFET driver module).
How can I switch out the push solenoid for a servo motor? The operational voltage of the servo is 4.8 to 7.2V (with a stall torque of 13 kg-cm) to give you an idea of its size. I have been told to buy a DC-DC step-down module (to adjust the Huawei supply from 12V down to 5V) but I think it could be easier to power the servo using some sort of USB?
Or other suggestions are welcome. I want the easiest solution (since I am NOT tech savvy) and I can't buy parts until I am for certain the solution will work (that's research for you). Thanks!
