Exclusive for Circuit Cellar readers: $50 off when you buy two Vyper single-channel motor controllers. Normally $500, get a pair for only $450 – a 10% discount! Contact Chris at Robot Power and mention the Circuit Cellar offer. This offer expires March 31, 2016.
The Robot Power Vyper is a powerful compact single channel motor control. Featuring low-resistance MOSFETs and up to 42 V operating voltage, the Vyper can handle 120 A of continuous current with peaks over 250 A. The Vyper features RC servo and voltage/pot inputs for flexible control. Unlike most competing units the Vyper is safe to use with bench power supplies and will not over discharge Lithium batteries.
The MegaMoto line of motor controllers for Arduino stack neatly on top of an Arduino Uno, Mega or compatible to provide high current motor control to the Arduino developer. The MegaMoto family consists of three units with current capacity ranging from 12 A to 65 A peak and a 28-V operating maximum. The MegaMoto and MegaMoto Plus allow up to three units to be stacked on a single Arduino Uno while the MegaMoto GT offers 35 A continuous current capability and includes a cooling fan.
Robot Power products allow you to control motors much larger than the “toy”-sized motors driven by most hobby and educational controllers. We allow you to complete “human scale” projects for transportation, robotics and whatever you can dream up. The Vyper controller was used by many of the competitors (including the champion) in the 2015 ABC TV show BattleBots. We also offer consulting services to customize the exact motor driver you need to complete your project or product. Give us a call or email to discuss your latest world changing invention. All Robot Power motor controls are proudly made in the USA.
