The AmpFlow Dual Motor Speed Controllers operate at 6 to 42
Volts and can handle 160 Amps per channel. They feature adjustable
braking, acceleration, and current limiting.
A BEC (Battery Eliminator Circuit) provides a 5V
power output for use with radio control receivers or other devices.
Two mixing options are
available. Each joystick can operate one channel independently, or a
single joystick can operate both channels for tank-like steering.
Over-current and over-heat control logic prevents meltdowns and
provides the maximum current even under stalled conditions. The
maximum current limit is adjustable.
The 160A controller measures 7.5" L x 4.3" W x 2.2" H. Weight:
1.4 lb. Note: This controller has been updated with a metal case rather than
the plastic case in the above picture.
* Both channels can be combined into a single channel
with 300A output
Additional third channel for low-current switching of auxiliary
* Inputs for two quadrature encoders for full servo
* Two servo connectors plug directly to an RC receiver
* Adjustable current limiting
User selectable servo feedback: Encoder or Analog voltage
Full RS232 serial command and setup
Multiple-operating modes: Normal PWM, Torque, Velocity,
Manual control inputs (Step/Dir) for each channel (Left, Right, Aux)
Robust signal processing for smooth, reliable fail-safe operation
Indicator LED's show direction, power, over-temperature, and board
This speed adjuster plugs into the radio control inputs of the motor
controller. It is a quick and easy way to send control signals
to the motor controller without the need for an RC transmitter or
receiver. Turn the knob to control the motors from full forward to
full reverse or anywhere in between.
One unit can control both
channels of the speed controller by sending the same signal to both
channels. Two units are required to have independent control of
speed and direction on both channels.
