Brushed DC Motor Controllers

Brushed DC motors are the most common and least expensive motor types. Choose from five product families and several product references of single, dual or triple channel motor controllers for brushed DC motors, ranging from 20A to 500A per channel: just match the voltage and current rating using our Product Tables below, or the Product Finder.

Helping Make Your Robot Mobile...

Mobile Robots need two motors to move and steer, and only Roboteq can make this work with a single controller. Compared to the traditional One Motor/One Controller approach, the Dual Channel is simpler, cheaper, easier to integrate and maintain.

Motors are coordinated within the controllers, resulting in superior and safer drive characteristics.

Make it even better with our Battery Management System for Lithium Batteries. You can add our Robot IO eXtender Module (RIOX) with its inertial measurement unit (IMU) for extra stability. Use matching motor/wheel assemblies from our Validated Motor Partners. Download Magnetic Navigation Software and get free, Expert Support from Roboteq to make it all work for you.

Interface with Anything

Image

Our controllers can be operated from practically anything. From simple push buttons, to Joysticks, Radios, PLCs, or Computers, Roboteq can interface with it. A generous number of Pulse/Analog/Digital Inputs are available for limit switches, potentiometers, encoders, buttons or sensors. Digital Outputs provide for braking, lights, or solenoids. Need more IO? Use our RIOX IO eXtender via CANbus and know no limits!

Yes, We CAN!

All our controllers have a 1Mbit CANbus interface. Using a simple wire pair, you can make two or more controllers work together, connect to Joysticks, PLCs, Battery Management Systems, or any other smart sensor. And thanks to four different available CAN protocols, you can be sure that they will be able to understand each other.

So Many Operating Modes, So Little Time

Image

Go to and maintain the speed you need, at the acceleration you want. Move forward or reverse with controlled torque. Stop exactly where you need. Consume or regenerate energy. With a fast 1ms Loop Update rate, five main Operating Modes and numerous configurable settings, our controllers will make your motor run as accurately, smoothly and responsively as required by your application.
