Servo program card
« on: July 01, 2021, 11:37:14 am »

I've just bought a Kingmax winch servo for my current project.
Due to space constraints and the pull needed, the SWG6114MD seemed to fit the bill.  The advertising claims that it is adjustable for 1-6 turns.  Herein lies the problem.  To do the adjusting, a program card is needed (not actually referenced in the advertising).  This is aside from any tweaking that might be possible with a transmitter that supports end point adjustments.
Out of its packaging, plugged into a standard plain receiver and operated from a plain standard transmitter, under test, you get 1.5 full turns.
As this is inadequate, reprogramming is needed.  Some users have said that theirs gave the regular 3 and a bit turns, which they were happy with.  I would have been happy with that.
Those selling this servo don't list the programmer.  Searching for "Kingmax SWG6114MD program card" turns up plenty of cards for other servos, but not this one.  At one point, there was a link to Kingmax, but this just gave a page saying how wonderful Kingmax think themselves, and the "FAQ" link was entirely related to their other products.
So, does anybody know of the correct programmer to use with this?
