Specifications Weight (assembled): 0.60 oz Dimensions: 1.3″ x 3.0″ Power Input: 4.8 – 16 Volts Continuous Current: 10A Peak Current: 30A PWM Range: 1000µ – 2000µ (microseconds) Operating Temperature: -40°C – 105°C
Four Selectable Modes – (1) Digital Speed Control Mode (RC Mode): The motor’s speed and direction will be controlled by a 1000 – 2000 µs digital PWM signal. 1000 µs = 100% in one direction 1500 µs = No movement 2000 µs = 100% in the other direction
(2) Analog Speed Control Mode: The motor’s speed and direction will be controlled by an analog voltage. The voltage is commonly controlled by a potentiometer. We recommend one with at least 1K of resistance such as our 5K potentiometer board. OV = 100% in one direction 1.65V = No movement 3.3V = 100% in the other direction

Description

The Actobotics® Dual Motor Controller provides a compact solution for controlling 2 brushed DC motors. The small footprint of the controller fits down inside the channel and the mounting holes perfectly align with the hub pattern which perforates the Actobotics® building system. The controller has 4 selectable modes to choose from, which is done by simply moving the jumpers. (Available in Unassembled version Part # 605057) Includes: (1) Actobotics Dual Motor Driver Board, (2) Jumpers, (3) pre-soldered Screw Terminals Features: – Under/overvoltage shutdown – Over voltage clamp – Thermal shutdown/protection – Cross-conduction protection – Current and power limitation – Outputs protected against short-ground and short-Vcc/supply voltage

(3) Split Mode: Channel 1 operates in Position Control Mode while Channel 2 operates under Digital Speed Control Mode.
(4) Position Control Mode (Servo Mode): In this mode the motor controller acts like a servo controller. Both channels will utilize a PWM signal as the target position, and an analog voltage (usually via a potentiometer) as the current position. If the current position does not match the target position the motor will be driven until they match.
