Dagu Spider Robot Controller (Arduino Mega 2560 Compatible)
The Red Back Spider controller from Dagu Electronics is an Arduino Mega compatible robot controller designed specifically for robots that use a large number of servos such as Humanoids, Hexapods and Serpents. All IO pins are laid out with power and ground for easy connection to servos or sensors.
The Spider Controller includes a 3A, 5V Switchmode Power Supply which means it can power and control up to 48 standard or miniature servos depending on load. It is the ideal controller for the Dagu Quadbot chassis.
The controller is compatible with standard servos operating from 4.2V ~ 6V (the controller supplies 5V). In case you wish to Power your servos at Higher Voltages, you can use the High Power Shield for the Spider Controller, enabling the use a dedicated Battery or Power Source for the servos.
