- Dual 12A 6V-24V regenerative motor driver
- Ultra-sonic switching frequency
- Thermal and overcurrent protection
- Lithium protection mode
- Input modes: Analog, R/C, simplified serial, packetized serial
This Sabertooth Dual 12A 6V-24V Regenerative Motor Driver is the new version of the Sabertooth 2x10 motor controller. It is one of the most versatile, efficient, and easy-to-use dual motor drivers on the market. It is suitable for medium-powered robots - up to 30 lbs in combat or 100 lbs for general-purpose robotics. Out of the box, the Sabertooth can supply two DC brushed motors with up to 12A each. Peak currents of 25A are achievable for a few seconds. Overcurrent and thermal protection mean you'll never have to worry about killing the driver with accidental stalls or by hooking up too big a motor. Please see the documents in useful links for more information.
Sabertooth allows you to control two motors with: analog voltage, radio control, serial and packetized serial. You can build many different robots of increasing complexity for years to come with a Sabertooth. Sabertooth has independent and speed+direction operating modes, making it the ideal driver for differential drive (tank style) robots and more. The operating mode is set with the onboard DIP switches so there are no jumpers to lose. Sabertooth features screw terminal connectors - making it possible for you to build a robot without even soldering.
