Sabertooth dual 5A motor driver

sabertooth 2x5 motor driver

Product Description

Sabertooth 2X5A is the motor driver of choice for small differential-drive robots.

Sabertooth dual 5A is ideal for smaller robots- up to 3lbs in combat or 25 lbs for general purpose use.

Sabertooth 2x5A is also a great choice in any application where you need to control two brushed motors.

Out of the box, the Sabertooth dual 5A can supply two DC brushed motors with up to 5A each continuously. Peak currents of 10A are achievable for short periods.

Because Sabertooth 2x5A incorporates soft current limiting and thermal protection, you need not worry about killing the driver with accidental stalls or by hooking up too big a motor.

Sabertooth dual 5A 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 2x5A.

Sabertooth dual 5A has independent and speed+direction operating modes, making it the ideal driver for differential drive (tank style) robots and more.

The operating mode of Sabertooth dual 5A is set with the onboard DIP switches so there are no jumpers to lose or complicated programming sequences.

Sabertooth 2x5A features screw terminal connectors - making it possible for you to build a robot without having to solder.

Sabertooth dual 5A is the first synchronous regenerative motor driver in its class. The regenerative topology means that your batteries get recharged whenever you command your robot to slow down or reverse.

Sabertooth 2x5A also allows you to make very fast stops and reverses - giving your robot a quick and nimble edge.

In certain operating modes Sabertooth dual 5A can process up to 3000 speed commands per second.

Sabertooth 2x5A has a built in 5V BEC that can provide power to a microcontroller or R/C receiver.

It also features a lithium cutoff mode allowing Sabertooth dual 5A to operate safely with lithium ion and lithium polymer battery packs - the highest energy density batteries available.

Sabertooth 2x5A transistors are switched at ultrasonic speeds (32kHz) for silent operation.

Use of our Sabertooth dual 5A motor drivers with cheap AC adapters is not recommended. Use a battery or at least put a battery in parallel with a DC supply.
