Sabertooth dual 10A motor driver for R/C
Sabertooth 2X10 R/C is our dual motor driver specifically optimized for
use in radio controlled vehicles. It is suitable for medium powered robots,
cars and boats.
Out of the box, it can supply two DC brushed motors with up to 10A each. Peak
currents of 15A are achievable for a few seconds. Overcurrent and thermal
protection means you'll never have to worry about killing the driver with
accidental stalls or by hooking up too big a motor.
This special R/C edition of our motor
driver comes with an invert channel and options for exponential
control, autocalibration and built-in mixing. The operating mode is set
with the onboard DIP switches so there are no jumpers to lose.
Sabertooth is the first synchronous regenerative motor driver in its class.
The regenerative topology means that your batteries get recharged whenever
you command your robot to slow down or reverse. Sabertooth also
allows you to make very fast stops and reverses - giving your vehicle a
quick and nimble edge.
Sabertooth has a built in 5V BEC that can provide power to a microcontroller
or R/C receiver. The lithium cutoff mode allows Sabertooth to operate
safely with lithium ion and lithium polymer battery packs - the highest energy
density batteries available.
Sabertooth's transistors are switched at ultrasonic speeds (32kHz) for

Use of our motor drivers with cheap AC adapters is not recommended.
Use a battery or at least put a battery in parallel with a DC supply.
