I have very limited experience with servos in general, so I am going to post a question that perhaps is quite obvious for many of you, but I do appreciate your help.
I need to select a servo that can travel 10 deg at 10 Hz back and forth for quite a long time. If I select from specs a servo that has a certain max speed for a full revolution can I assume that, without any load, that would be the max speed to travel only 10 deg continuously back and forth? Obviously, I have to consider the load and its inertia, but is there anything else I should keep in mind?
At the moment, I am looking at the DYNAMIXEL with embedded Encoder and I have a Dynamixel XH430-W210-R, which probably is not fast enough for my application (50rev/min at 12 V) but that I am testing using Labview. So far, using position control I managed to operate back and forth 10 deg at a maximum frequency of 2Hz.
Also, when looking at specs, what is the difference between rpm in Continuous Operation or Performance Characteristics?
Many thanks in advance for the help!
