Needle moved 10degree in the wrong direction.

I am using MG90 so the same as SG90 except metal gears..

Thanks
Hi,

Are you building your own gauge or is it a bought one?

Keith

EDIT: the code I sent is for these gauges.

So I would need to swap numbers when doing calculations or where? not sure how to calculate it..
Ralph wrote: Wed Jan 05, 2022 6:36 pm It would just require you to go from the maximum value to the minimum value if you want to go the other way around. It's pretty basic maths.

So instead of going from for example 0.03 to 0.13, you go from 0.13 to 0.03.

Aside from that, I would recommend using a stepper motor instead of a servo. If you use something like a x25 or x27, it is very simple.

Hi Krys
OK then it is a math thing.

I can try and help by a chat on the discord should you want.
