Do I need a motor controller or logic converter?

frrobert

I am new to electronics and brand new to Esquilo. I am stiill waiting on my board.
I believe the answer to both my questions is no but I want to make sure I am correct.

I am working on a project that uses a continuous rotation servo to move an agar to dispense a treat.

The specs for the servo are:
Power requirements: 4 to 6 VDC; Maximum current draw
140 +/- 50 mA at 6 VDC when operating in no load conditions, 15 mA when in static state.
Input; TTL or CMOS

I looked at the specs for the Esquilo air and it looks like the the 5 V output can deliver 1.5 amp so I believe I do not need a motor controller.

The specs also say the input can be either TTL or CMOS and it looks like TTL output does not need any logic converter. so I believe I do not need a logic converter since the servo can do either TTL or CMOS.

So I guess my question actually is, am I correct in my conclusions?

Thanks.

You are correct on both counts.

Thank you for your help.
