The Kangaroo x2 module is used to connect encoders and limit switches to Dimension Engineering’s SyRen and Sabertooth motor drivers. It accepts up to 2 quadrature encoders or potentiometers and attaches directly to SyRen or Sabertooth terminals.
The great advantage of this module is that it is self-adjusting, just press a few buttons and set a dip-switch. The Kangaroo x2 works with analog or RC sources but also with microcontrollers or computers.
You can control the speed, positions or combined commands such as “go 5 meters at a speed of 3 m / s”. You can also know the speed and position during the operation of your robot.
