Dimension Engineering motor drivers: let your small racers roll!
Generating 2 x 5A of continuous power and 10A of peak current per motor, the Sabertooth 2x5 motor driver from Dimension Engineering will delight the designers of small mobile robots. You can control the speed and/or direction of your mobile robotics platforms, and give differential drive a try. Four modes are available: analogue, radio control, plain text serial or packetised serial. The key here is design freedom!
