Press release from Team Tekin:
Tekin Servos have arrived. Full aluminum housing, Digital Magnetic Position Encoding, Precision Cut Metal Gears and an Element Proof Design make for the ultimate in servo technology. Steering, Throttle, Control Surfaces or custom projects, standard or low-profile; we've got you.
THE DIFFERENCE IS IN THE DESIGN
Tekin servos are crafted from the highest quality materials available. CNC Precision Cut gears provide an extremely smooth and efficient drive train. 6061-T6 machined aluminum 3-piece o-ring housings provide strength and protection from the elements while the finish quality and design are second to none. Sleek chamfered edges and bold lines combined with a matte anodized finish are sure to accent any build.
Digital Magnetic Position Encoder
Our servos use Digital Magnetic Position Encoding rather than a standard potentiometer, which gives Tekin servos the industry leading accuracy, linearity and consistency.
Precise linear movement through the entire motion range with less than .2 degrees of deviation from start point to end point make Tekin the superior performance product. Low deviation translates to pinpoint accuracy not found in other servos, which tend to wander and center poorly. Tekin is built to last at peak performance.
Potentiometer servos can be up to seven degrees non-linear from end point to end point, creating a disconnected feel from your transmitter. Tekin servos eliminate this disconnect, giving you a linear feel and more precise control over your servo movement and position.
Performance is important but we are all about consistent performance. Potentiometer performance drifts due to many variables; heat, age, component quality, etc. Magnetic Encoding is a rock-solid, repeatable and consistent technology bringing an unmatched consistency to Tekin servos. Tired of constantly trimming your servo and having response feel different during times of longer usage? Tekin servos are the answer.
Accuracy drives efficiency. A servo that has to work less to center or stop without overshooting position is using less energy. This means less heat build-up, less component fatigue and longer life.
Dependable, no matter the terrain. Element Proof Tekin products are designed to handle water, mud & snow within reasonable restrictions. While we are not afraid to take on the elements, submerging is not recommended and voids the warranty.
Command every turn and pass the competition with confidence. Designed to give you the industry’s highest per degree resolution steering and plenty of speed to keep that chassis where you want it. Full Metal Gear set, All Aluminum Housing, Digital Position Encoding and loads of Torque, this servo keeps you in control. Fine-tune your setup with an extensive set of adjustments via Tekin’s HotWire PC Interface.
