1 SRS PROGRAMMER OVERVIEW
The REV Robotics SRS Programmer is the key to unlocking all the smart features of the Smart Robot Servo (SRS).
Switching between continuous rotation, standard servo, and custom angular modes is easy as pressing a button. The SRS
Programmer can not only program the SRS, but it is also acts as a standalone servo tester for any standard RC servo.

2 OPERATING MODES
The SRS Programmer has several operating modes for configuring and testing the REV Smart Robot Servo. The following
sections describe each operating mode in detail.
2.1 SWITCHING MODES
Follow the steps below to switch a REV SRS between Continuous Mode and Servo Mode. Figure 2-1 shows the process to
select Continuous Mode.
1. Connect the SRS to the programmer.
2. Turn on the programmer.
3. Slide the mode switch to the desired mode: C - Continuous, S - Servo.
4. Press and release the PROGRAM button once.
5. The PROGRAM LED should blink and then stay solid indicating success.

2.2 SETTING ANGULAR LIMITS
Follow the steps below to set the angular limits for the Servo Mode. Figure 2-2 shows an example of setting a left and
right limits at -30° and +60° respectively.
Start with the SRS already configured in Servo Mode, see section 2.1 SWITCHING MODES for instructions.
1. Connect the SRS to the programmer.
2. Turn on the programmer.
3. Slide the mode switch to S position.
4. This step is optional, but recommended to make it easier to see the valid limit ranges. Please refer to the SRS
User's Manual for more information about the valid limit ranges.
a.
Press and release the TEST button twice to enter Manual Test Mode (see section 2.4 TEST MODES for
more information).
b. Press the PROGRAM button to center the servo at 0°.
c.
Press and release the TEST button once to leave the test mode.
5. Manually rotate the servo to the desired left limit position.
6. Press and release the LEFT button. The LEFT LED will illuminate if the position is valid.
7. Manually rotate the servo to the desired right limit position.
8. Press and release the RIGHT button. The RIGHT LED will illuminate if the position is valid.
9. After both limits are set, press and release the PROGRAM button. The PROGRAM LED should blink and then stay
solid indicating success.

2.3 RESETING TO DEFAULTS
Follow the steps below to reset the SRS to its default mode and limits. Figure 2-3 shows the process to reset to defaults.
1. Connect SRS to the programmer.
2. Turn on the programmer.
3. Slide the mode switch to S position.
4. Press and hold the PROGRAM button for at least 5 seconds.
5. The LEDs will blink and then the PROGRAM LED will stay solid indicating success.

2.4 TEST MODES
In either Continuous or Servo Modes, pressing and releasing the TEST button cycles through the two test modes:

1st press - Automatic Sweep Mode

2nd press - Manual Test Mode

3rd press - Return to default state
The following sections describe the two test modes in detail.
2.4.1 AUTOMATIC SWEEP MODE
In Automatic Sweep Mode, the SRS Programmer will automatically sweep the SRS through motions appropriate for its
configuration. Table 2-1 describes the behavior based on the configured mode.

2.4.2 MANUAL TEST MODE
In Manual Test Mode the LEFT, PROGRAM, and RIGHT buttons control the movement of the SRS. Table 2-2 describes how
the SRS will behave based on the configured mode.
