QT Py and Servo Prep

Get the QT Py and analog feedback servo ready to wire.

The jumper wires feature connectors that will be removed using wire cutters.

Tin Wires from Servo

Using wire stripper, remove a bit of insulation from each wire from the analog feedback servo.

Third helping hands can help keep the wires steady while soldering.

Tin each wire by adding a bit of solder to prevent the strands of wire from fraying.

Prepped Servo Wires

The wires from the analog feedback servo will be soldered to the pin on the QT Py.

An optional bit of heat shrink tubing can be used to keep the four wires from the analog feedback servo together.

Solder Wires to QT Py

Connect the four wires from analog feedback servo to the following pins on the QT Py.

  • Red wire to 5V pin
  • Brown wire to GND pin
  • Orange wire to A1 pin
  • White wire to A2 pin

Connected Servo

Take a moment to inspect the wiring to ensure proper connections.

Copper and Wire

Get the copper tape and a piece of 30AWG wire ready to connect together.

Measure and cut a piece of copper tape about 3in(76mm) in length.

Measure and cut a piece of wire to about 5in (127mm) in length.

Solder Wire to Copper

Using wire strippers, remove a bit of insulation from both ends of the wire.

Tin both ends of the wire by adding a bit of solder.

Tin one end of the copper tape by adding a small amount of solder.

Solder the wire to the piece of copper tape by heating up the tinned area.

Connect Copper Tape

Take a moment to inspect the copper tape and wire to ensure they have been properly soldered together.

Solder Copper Tape Wire

Connect the wire from the piece of copper tape to the TX pin on the QT Py. 

A helping hands tool can keep things sturdy while soldering.

Finished Circuit

Take a moment to inspect all of the wires in the circuit to ensure everything has been properly soldered.
