Ah well! Lets see... Door is about 12" x 7", bottom hinged (on the long edge), spring loaded. Power supply is a 5V 2A wall wart.My crystal ball has misted over.
How heavy is the door? What dimensions? Top-hinged or side-hinged? Latching mechanism? Spring-loaded? Power supply?
Don't really need much precision actually. The servo just opens the door to cool the oven a little faster and once the temp reaches a certain point it releases and the 'ajar' door shuts back. The software monitors the temp and controls the servo. I'm wondering if I should just open the door manually to cool itYou can measure it with a spring scale for e.g.
If you want precise positioning for temp. control using a servo motor you would need feedback via PID loop.
Depends how precise you need it.
