Sabertooth dual 32A motor driver
Sabertooth 2x32 is a dual channel motor driver capable of supplying
32 amps to two motors, with peak currents up to 64 amps per motor.
It can be operated from radio control, analog, TTL serial or USB inputs.
It uses regenerative drive and braking for efficient operation.
A variety of operating modes including tank style mixing and automatic
calibration allow most projects to work immediately out of the box.
In addition to the standard operating modes, Sabertooth 2x32 features
additional signal inputs and power outputs, as well as enhanced
User-defined operating modes allow for custom operation, such as
switching between radio control and computer-driven inputs on the fly,
emergency stops or front panel control overrides.
The auxiliary power outputs can be configured to allow the Sabertooth
2x32 to operate from a power supply without a parallel battery, or
automatic control of electromagnetic brakes.
When combined with Dimension Engineering’s Kangaroo x2 motion control
module, the Sabertooth 2x32 can be used for closed-loop position or
speed control with encoder or analog feedback.
The state of the driver can be monitored in real time using the USB
port in any operating mode, making debugging your project faster and easier.
Sabertooth 2x32 is more flexible, robust and powerful than previous motor drivers,
while also being easier to use.
