MDC 2x60A motor controller quick question.

7 years 5 months ago #29527940 by pche8701
Hi, I am using the MDC 2x60A motor controllers. It is to be provided with 24 V for my robotics project, however due to some issues, the supply voltage had to be reduced to 22.2 V. I was wondering if there is anyway built into this motor controller that could possibly step up the DC voltage back to 24 V (for a motor connected with this motor controller).

Thanks!

The controller that you have will accept the maximum voltage that it is rated for. So if you have an MDC2230, then the max voltage that can be supplied is 30V.

The motor will use the same voltage that battery supplies. As far as what I know is that the software allows you to limit the voltage, but does not have any provisions to increase a voltage on its own. This I believe would require another circuit to boost the voltage up.

Just out of curiosity, why did the voltage need to be reduced?
