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 [...]
