I'm new here and to the aurdino.
I'm building a 3D printed robotic arm controlled by a EMG sensor. I purchased a V3 EMG board and leads on Aliexpress. Here's a list of the things I've purchase for this project
2 MG996R servos 7.2 max voltage I know not to power these through the board.
X4 AA battery pack with male barrel input lead to power the arduino. Wiring, header pins and cables.
I don't have any breadboards BTW.
The functionality is basic, servos on pulleys and strings, I'm looking for one servo to control the open close hand function, and the other is to open and close the index and thumb for a pinch function to pick up smaller objects.
I need to know the following,
Option to power servo, EMG sensor and arduino from single power source or two batteries and how to wire these a simple picture or schematic would be great.
What code can I quickly copy and paste to perform the functions I mentioned.
I do have some very basic DC electronic experience.
I just don't want to damage my components by just experimenting as it takes weeks to replace them otherwise. Thanks.
