Here's a medium-duty, two-channel motor driver offering 10A current control up to 18V. Great for medium to large sized robots!


Additional Information [Hide]

This item has been discontinued and replaced by the Sabertooth 2x12.

This is the big brother to the Sabertooth 2X5, which itself is a very nice, flexible dual-motor controller, but sometimes you just need that extra power. Which is where the Sabertooth 2X10 comes in. Power a 30lb combat-class robot, or a 100lb general purpose robot!

The Sabertooth 2X10 is spec'd out to drive 2 DC brushed motors to up to 10A (15A peak for a few seconds) at up to 18 VDC. And like the rest of the Sabertooth series, it has overcurrent and thermal protection that keeps it safe from excessive loads (like stalls, or really oversized motors).

The Sabertooth 2X10 understands input via several methods, being:

  • Analog voltage (direct control "joystick" applications)
  • R/C standard PWM signals (excellent for talking to remote-control receivers)
  • Serial & packetized serial (great for microcontroller interfacing)

Did you know this Sabertooth has "synchronous regenerative motor driving"? This means it redirects power generated by coasting or braking motors back to the battery, which extends battery life. A very cool feature, which makes great use of power that would otherwise be used up as heat.

The Sabertooth also has a built-in 5V battery eliminator circuit (BEC) that can supply power to a microcontroller or R/C receiver.

What ever you do, don't use a cheap AC/DC wall-wart as the power supply for this motor controller. If you must, at least wire in a suitably large battery in parallel with the power supply. 10 amperes of current is quite a lot of power to draw from a wall-adapter!

In short, here's what it can do:

  • Up to 18V in: 10A continuous, 15A peak per channel.
  • 24V in: 8A continuous, 10A continuous with additional heatsinking/airflow, 15A peak per channel.
  • Synchronous regenerative drive
  • Ultra-sonic switching frequency
  • Thermal and overcurrent protection
  • Lithium protection mode�
  • Input modes:
    • Analog
    • R/C
    • Simplified serial, packetized serial
  • Size: 2.3 x 3 x .7 / 59 x 75 x 17 mm
