The Sabertooth 50A Motorcontrollerboard is an very efficient driver module wich can be used in multiple ways espacially for robots based on wheels or chains up to 50kg. The Motorcontrollerboard is designed for a power consumption of 50A per DC-motor with a maximum power consumption of 100A.
Benefits & External Encoder - Module
The Sabertooth 50A Motorcontrollerboard is provided with an overcurrent- & overtemperature protection wich automatically puts the Sabertooth controller into safety mode when exposed to high currents. In addition to that the transistors are clocked with 32KHZ wich results in a very silent operation.
The Sabertooth Controller can furthermore be enhanced with a Motion Controller (Kangaroo x2) to higher the positioning accuracy even more. the Motion Controller, wich can also hold an quadrature Encoder or Potentiometer, only has to be plugged onto the controllerboard.
What are the benefits of an regenerative Motorcontroller?
Due to the decreasing size of robots / autonomous systems the space that is available for the voltage supply also decreases. For this reason the motorcontroller was designed to not only function as a drive for the brush
Due to the microcontroller supported controlling the Sabertooth 50A Regenerative Motorcontrollerboard can be controlled via PWM signals or with a serial / TTL interface. Both the PWM signal and the interface can be found in every common singel-board computers and Atmel & ST uC's.
The selection of the kind of signal, the adjustment of the adress and baudrate can be done with the switches that can be seen below. The full documentation regarding the configuration can be found in the data sheet.
