Ragworm PCBs

The Ragworm PCBs arrived! Actually they arrived a while ago, but I’ve been too busy at work to do much with them. They’re a lovely orange with immersion gold pads.

These PCBs are for mounting hall sensors. They then mount on to the motor above where the shaft sticks out the back of the motor. You glue (epoxy) a magnet to the shaft and then the hall sensor will give you encoder pulses corresponding to the rotation of the motor.

Then you couple that with servo control software (we’ve written our own software running on a propellor hat from Pimoroni) and you have a high power, continuous rotation servo that can be powerful enough to run a CNC machine (depends on your motors of course).
