The Solo 60 is an intelligent motor controller designed to control one brushed DC motor at 60 Amps continuous with up to 100 Amps peak. It can be controlled from USB, RC radio, PWM, TTL serial, analog, and microcontrollers such as an Arduino or Raspberry Pi.
The Solo 60 automatically supports 3.3V or 5V logic levels, travel limit switches, home switches, emergency stop switches, power supplies, braking systems, and contactors. A built-in switching mode BEC supplies 5VDC at up to 1.2 Amps for powering user devices.
Brushed DC motors can be controlled in open or closed-loop using position or velocity control modes. It features several built-in commands for controlling acceleration, deceleration, distance, speed, current sense, voltage limits, and more. RC and analog control modes also include several user-defined settings such as acceleration and deceleration rates.
Quadrature encoders with up to 19.6 million pulses per second are supported and can be auto-tuned using Motion Studio, a free downloadable application. In addition, a wide range of sensor inputs, including potentiometers and absolute encoders, is supported. The closed-loop functionality enables total control over speed, velocity, and direction, regardless of load changes.
This motor controller incorporates several protection features, including over and under-voltage, temperature, and current limits. Several user-definable settings such as maximum and minimum battery voltages, and current limits, are provided for more refined control.
The Solo 60's regenerative braking will charge the battery when braking. Its advanced circuitry can change direction during full throttle without damage, and it has a LiPo cutoff mode to prevent battery damage.
