The Sabertooth 2x60A Motor Driver is ideal for differential motor control of robots, tanks, cars and boats, etc. It is suitable for weights of 450 kg (55 kg for combat robots). The two DC brush motors can be operated using an analog voltage, an RC signal or a serial signal.

The Sabertooth 2x60A has independent modes for speed and direction, making differential control easier. During each slowdown or change of direction of rotation of the motor, the SaberTooth 2×60 card recharges the battery, allowing a greater autonomy of the robot.

It allows sudden changes of direction and quick stops. A 5 VDC output is available to power a microcontroller or RC receiver.

This is very important –

Use wire of adequate cross section in view of the very high current. Using too small a wire may result in destruction of the card (see instruction manual) and / or fire.

Carefully observe polarity. A polarity reversal will cause the card to be destroyed and the warranty will not apply.

Power supply: 6 to 30 Vdc (NiCd, NiMh, Lithium, Lead Acid)

This card can not be powered by AC power.

Output current: 2 x 60 A continuous (2 x 120 A peak)

Control signal:

– Analog voltage 0 to 5 Vdc

– Radio signal RC

– Serial connection

Status indication by LEDs

Thermal and overload protection

Dimensions: 89 X 76 x 47 mm
