-====== (Servos) ====== 
  
-{{ :​vex_robotics_platforms:​vex_edr:​motors_and_controllers:​motor-servo.jpg?​400|}}While very similar in appearance, motors and servos are suited to distinctly different types of tasks. Servos are incapable of making a full rotation. Vex Servos are limited to about 100 degrees of rotation, but have the invaluable ability to self-correct to maintain any specific position within the set boundaries. 
- 
-Like motors, Servos operate off of a PWM signal between 0 and 255 (or -128 to 127, depending on development environment),​ except servos use that signal to move to a specific position at a constant speed set by the manufacturer. ​
