Sabertooth 2X12 dual regenerative motor driver from Dimension Engineering drives two robot DC motors with a continuous current of 12A and peak of 25A. Features thermal protection and soft current limiting making it very hard to kill. This versatile driver communicates via serial, packetized serial, radio control PWM signals and analog voltage.
The Sabertooth 2X12 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 30lbs in combat or 100lbs for general purpose robotics.
