AmpFlow releases lightweight motor controller

California-based AmpFlow is unveiling a new lightweight motor controller.

The controller supplies up to 180 amps per channel at 12 to 40 volts. Designers say it includes multiple command input modes, for use with radio control receivers or analog devices like joysticks. At 7 inches x5.5 inches x1.5 inches and 3.4 pounds, AmpFlow describes the new controller as compact and easy to install.

“The AmpFlow controller is ideal for robotic and industrial applications that require high power in an economical and compact package,” the company says.

The controller allows full forward and reverse operation of two independent motors. The two channels can also be operated together for “tank style” steering. And yet a third channel controls an independent two-amp switched output for a clutch or brake.

AmpFlow also notes that their controller features an automatic stop in case of command loss, safe power-on start, and over-current and overheat protection. The controller also includes several inputs for connecting switches or sensors, including a serial-port PC connector to enable data capture, storage and configuration.
