Roboteq's RGDC18xx is a very high-current, features-packed motor controller for brushed DC motors. The controller can operate in one of several modes in order to sense the rotor position and sequence power to the motors' 3 windings in order to generate smooth continuous rotation. The controller can also use Encoder feedback to compute speed and measure travelled distance inside a 32-bit counter.

The motors may be operated in open or closed loop speed mode, position mode or in torque mode. The RGDC18xx features an Analog, and several Digital and Pulse I/Os which can be remapped as command or feedback inputs, limit switches, or many other functions. The RGDC18xx accepts commands received from an RC radio, Analog potentiometer, wireless modem, or microcomputer. Using CAN bus, up to 127 controllers can be networked at up to 1Mbit/s on a single twisted pair.

Numerous safety features are incorporated into the controller to ensure reliable and safe operation. The controller's operation can be extensively automated and customized using Basic Language scripts. The controller can be configured, monitored and tuned in realtime using a Roboteq's free PC utility. The controller can also be reprogrammed in the field with the latest features by downloading new operating software from Roboteq.
