  • Sabertooth Dual 5A 6V-18V Regenerative Motor Driver
    Pricy but good...
    Review by Matthew
    For My application I would have been happy with half the wattage and (half the price) but I certainly can see the benefits of this device. It was simple to connect and configure. It retained the torque even at slow speeds. It completed my application in one go. I would recommend it for any project requiring maximum torque at two motors.

  • Sabertooth Dual 12A 6V-24V R/C Regenerative Motor Driver
    Great product!
    Review by Reg
    I have several of these installed in various scale construction equipment models. They work excellent and offer very smooth control. My only complaint is the 1amp BEC.

  • Simple-H 20A, 5V to 28V DC Motor Driver
    Excellent High Power Driver Board
    Review by Ted
    Fairly straight forward. Instructions decent but didn't really mention the Enable Pin which threw me for a while. Got it working and works great with my linear actuator going in both directions.

  • Motor Shield Kit for Arduino v2
    Works
    Review by Mitchell
    Used to replace the older adyfruit motor shield that I fried a few months ago. Needed different libraries, drivers, etc... but I eventually got it to work. Works like a charm.

  • Motor Shield Kit for Arduino v2
    Nice board
    Review by matias
    Tested this with different stepper motors, servos and DC's, they all work nicely with this shield. Even managed to run 2 large stepper motors concurrently.

Robot Operating Time & Efficiency

Posted on March 09, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Industry.

Have you wondered why some robots can run much longer than others, or why UAVs can only hover for a few minutes? The battery pack you choose is certainly important, but there are many additional factors which have a huge influence on the total time your robot operates between charges.

Basics: What is a Motor Controller?

Posted on February 20, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Where to Start.

A Motor Controller is a device that acts as intermediary between your robot’s microcontroller, batteries and motors. A motor controller is necessary because a microcontroller can usually only provide roughly 0.1 Amps of current whereas most actuators (DC motors, DC gear motors, servo motors etc.) require several Amps. The current a motor consumes is related to [...]

A relay is best if you don't need to vary the speed or direction. If you do need to change the direction or speed, then you'll need a motor controller:
