RoboteQ's HBL2360A is a high-current, dual channel controller capable of driving two hall-sensor equipped Brushless DC motors up to 60V and 75A per channel. The controller can operate in Trapezoidal mode or Sinusoidal mode with Field Oriented Control (FOC). Several sensors types are supported in order to detect the rotor position and sequence power to the motors' 3 windings in order to generate smooth continuous rotation. The controller can drive sensorless motors in trapezoidal mode.
The HBL2360A accepts commands received from an RC radio, Analog Joystick, wireless modem, or microcomputer. Using CAN bus, up to 127 controllers can be networked on a single twisted pair. Numerous safety features are incorporated into the controller to ensure reliable and safe operation. For mobile robot applications, the controller's two motor channels can either be operated independently or mixed to set the direction and rotation of a vehicle by coordinating the motion of each motor.
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.
