Hi everyone, I have two Basic stamp Parallax high power motor controllers (HB-25). I would like to use these with the EZ-Bot, but was wondering, are they compatible with the EZ-Bot? If so, is there a certain way to connect them to the EZ-Bot? I need a high power motor controller to run a couple of strong DC motors that will be pulling at least 8A continuous, at 12v DC, and since I already have these HB-25, which can handle 25A at 12v continuous, it would be great to use them with the EZ-Bot, if possible. Thanks

Connect a servo port from the EZ-B to B, R and W
Technically you should be able to get away without using R a it is not connected or used.
B is GND
W is EXT
R is 5+ even though it is not used
Connect Vin to another power supply of +12V
and GND to the power supplies GND
Less than a Sabertooth 2x25 and they have fans built in that you would probably need for a sabertooth.
******Oh, one more thing, you need to remove the jumper that is on the HB-25 Motor Controller, for it to work with the EZ-B.*******
*******Each HB-25 that you use, needs to be connected to its own digital port, to work with the EZ-B, they will not work, daisy chained together, like you can with the Basic Stamp Board.*******
Ez robot board should be in sometime in the next week or two. I ordered the 2.5 amp motor controller, as a backup.
Didn't order the kit, just the board, as I don't really need the servos and such. Figure I will be kicking myself for not ordering the camera from EZ. Hopefully there is an alternative.
Can you expound on the jumper? Is it obvious which one it is?
