The Continuous Servo Motor is a component to simulate an accelerated rotational motion on an axis. It consists of two components; Physical and Logic. Both are needed to control the motor through a logic adapter (connecting the Continuous Servo Motor to an external controller through a https://unit040.atlassian.net/wiki/pages/createpage.action?spaceKey=PUD&title=Logic%20Simulator&linkCreation=true&fromPageId=280855347 ). Adding a Control Panel gives you the option to control the motor.
A succesfully created ContinuousServoMotor shows up with this gizmo
Where to find
The Continuous Servo Motor can be found under
Standard Components > Motors > Continuous Servo Motor > Physical Component / Logic Component
It will automatically be attached to a selected GameObject or otherwise it will create a new GameObject to attach to.
A https://unit040.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/PUD/pages/281673729 will be created automatically as part of the component.
Selecting the newly created GameObject gives you the following menu in the Inspector.
Please note: this is an example of a GameObject with the Physical Continuous Servo Motor component

How to use - Physical Component
Add a Continuous Servo Component to a GameObject, in this case a simple cube
Add a Kinematics Controller, this can be found under Mechanics > Add Kinematics > Kinematics Controller. Make sure the Kinematic Controller is visible in the hierarchy and not connected to the Cube
Make sure the Cube is parented under the Kinematic Controller in the Hierarchy
Add a Control Panel
Set the Target
Press Play to see the rotation of the cube, controlled by the Continuous Servo Motor
Feature Layout - Logic Component
Continuous Servo Motor
Selects a Continuous Servo Motor component you wish to connect to the PLC
In the PLC I/O panel you can see the latest input and output values from the PLC.
PLC Settings and Debugging are general Logic Component settings. Look at the Logic Component Documentation for more details.
