EZB to Sabertoorh Ground to Ground (ov) VCC to 5V Signal to S1

Motors to Sabertooth As sabertooth instructions - I assume you have it drawn correctly.

Battery to Sabertooth As sabertooth instructions. Assuming you have it drawn correctly.

If using multiple voltage sources all grounds must be connected as a common ground (as you have shown correctly however may not be needed if the ground on the sabertooth is common, it wont hurt putting it in anyway)

So yes, I think your picture is correct.


i read there was something about grounding the signal from the ez-b by the 0V input on it.

ill see if i get any other comments


Your picture is correct :)


The Sabertooth (at least the 2x25) also has a 5v output that can be used to power the EZ-B so you don't need 2 power sources. But your diagram will work as is.



Hi guys! Im not sure if I am supposed to post like this but is this sabertooth/EZ-B wiring done correctly?

Looks good to me from what little I know about the sabertooth - all that is required to the EZ-B is the signal wire and a common ground on the whole lot.

I assume the dip switches are set correctly (can't quite make them out)


The Dips must yet be switched. thank you for reminding me.

Yes I ran the green wire from the two sets of batterie's black wires so i guess that's the ground and that means its all good ay? thanks rich!

OK just in case this might help someone else
