12V Or 24V Motor Controls

Hello Everyone.

Does anyone have the EZ robot controler operating 12v or 24v DC Motors ?

And if so can you give me some ideals for what type of motor controlers I can use that will interface with the device?

I will keep looking in the forums but any help would be greatly appreciated.




Upgrade to ARC Pro

ARC Pro will give you immediate updates and new features needed to unleash your robot's potential!

For motors of any voltage, you will need an H-Bridge. You need to determine the amperage of the motors, and then we can assist with recommendations.

Sabertooth has a wide variety of high amp H-bridges with a wide range of input voltage. Parrelax (sp) also has a good 25 amp H-bridge that a few people use.

Google "robo claw". I will be purchasing one of these units this week. The 2x30 version(2). I have 24 vdc wheelchair motors but will be running them at 12vdc. I was very impressed with all of its specs.

Thanks for all the input:)

I am using them to drive wheelchair Motors. So the amperage will be fairly high.

I still need to get a picture of the label sent to me to see the exact amperage.

Looks like I need to do some more research but you guys have given me some great starting points.

Thanks again.

Also does anyone have any suggestions on Blue Tooth Remotes ?

Take care,

Most people I have spoken to with wheelchair motors use the Sabertooth 2x25. I will also be using wheelchair motors on my large robot, and that is the H-Bridge I chose.
