Sabertooth Dual 32A Motor Driver is a dual channel motor driver capable of supplying 32 amps to two motors, with peak currents up to 64 amps per motor. It can be operated from radio control, analog, TTL serial or USB inputs. It uses regenerative drive and braking for efficient operation. A variety of operating modes including tank style mixing and automatic calibration allow most projects to work immediately out of the box.
In addition to the standard operating modes, Sabertooth 2×32 features additional signal inputs and power outputs, as well as enhanced configuration options. User-defined operating modes allow for custom operation, such as switching between radio control and computer-driven inputs on the fly, emergency stops or front panel control overrides.
The auxiliary power outputs can be configured to allow the Sabertooth 2×32 to operate from a power supply without a parallel battery or automatic control of electromagnetic brakes. When combined with Dimension Engineering’s Kangaroo x2 motion control module, the Sabertooth 2×32 can be used for closed-loop position or speed control with encoder or analog feedback.
The state of the driver can be monitored in real time using the USB port in any operating mode, making debugging your project faster and easier. Sabertooth 2×32 is more flexible, robust and powerful than previous motor drivers, while also being easier to use.
