The GoBilda 1x15A Motor Controller (30A Peak) is a compact, easy way to control the speed and direction of a brushed DC motor.
Wiring (Receiver): If you are using an RC receiver, simply plug this 3-wire connector into the desired channel. The built-in 6V BEC (which can supply 3A continually) will power your receiver via the red wire. It can also be plugged into a servo controller or an Arduino (via jumper wires) or anything that can produce a PWM signal. It responds proportionally to a signal between 1050 - 1950 microseconds. This range was chosen to allow most standard radio systems to achieve full motor power without reprogramming.
Wiring (12-24V In): Plug a battery or power supply (12-24V) into the XT30 connector. XT30 connectors are keyed, which prevents them from being plugged in backward.
Motor: If you are rocking a Yellow Jacket or another motor that has 3.5mm bullet connectors, just plug it in! If your motor does not have bullet connectors, check out our bullet connector leads and adaptors. Brushed DC motors are reversible so you don't need to worry about plugging it in backward. If the motor spins in the wrong direction, just swap the red and black wires.
Mounting: The case has four holes, spaced on a 32mm square. This allows the motor controller to align with the 8mm grid pattern found throughout the goBILDA lineup of parts. Simply grab some M4 hardware (the case is 12mm thick so make sure to get screws that will reach through the case and into a nut or threads in a nearby part) and fasten it down.
Protection: The board has safety features built in to protect it from silly wiring errors and/or punishment beyond what it should be asked to hold up too. While the XT30 connector itself is keyed, we know that sometimes input connectors get removed and/or replaced so we added reverse voltage protection.
