Manufacturer Description

The RoboClaw 2x5 Amp is an extremely efficient, versatile, dual channel synchronous regenerative motor controller. It supports dual quadrature encoders and can supply two brushed DC motors with 5 Amps continuous and 10 Amp peak. With dual quadrature decoding you get greater control over speed and velocity. Automatically maintain a speed even if the load increases. RoboClaw also has a built in PID routine for use with an external control system. RoboClaw is easy to control with several built in modes. It can be controlled from a standard RC receiver/transmitter, serial device, microcontroller or an analog source, such as a potentiometer based joystick. RoboClaw is equipped with screw terminal for fast connect and disconnect. All modes are set by the onboard dip switches making setup a snap! Being a synchronous regenerative motor controller means when ever RoboClaw is slowing down or breaking the batteries are being charged. With the advance circuitry it can also change direction during full throttle without damage! RoboClaw also includes a jumper selectable 5V BEC and lithium cutoff mode which protects your batteries from damage. Get the power to win your next robotics competition! Robo Claw requires a male-to-male RC adapter cable when used with RC receivers. Features 3.3V Compliant Outputs 5V Tolerant Inputs High Speed Direction Change 5V BEC Built In Battery Level Monitoring Up to 8,000,000 PPS Decoder Hardware Based Thermal Protection Regenerative Breaking Serial, RC or Analog Control Easy to Use Can be Bussed
