Servo 2040 current sensing

First, thanks for the Servo 2040–it’s a great board. I have three of them now.:-)

Is it possible to use the current sensor to check the current consumption of individual servos? The example (or the corresponding CircuitPython example) only seem to display one current reading, which I assume is for the entire board (let me know if that assumption is correct/incorrect).

Being able to shut down a servo when it approaches stall torque/current draw would be a great thing for my application.



If I read the schematic correctly, there is only one sensor, that measures the current drawn by all the servos.

Yep, the current sensing is for the whole board, not per servo.

Thanks! You’ve saved me a bunch of time today!
