|1060_0 - PhidgetMotorControl LV - Discontinued|
Control up to two low current DC motors with this controller.
Replaced by the 1065 – PhidgetMotorControl 1-Motor
The PhidgetMotorControl LV is a USB based controller that can control two low-voltage brushed DC motors independently for direction, velocity and acceleration.
Many variations of brushed DC motors exist: permanent magnet motors, electromagnet motors, coreless motors, linear motors... the PhidgetMotorController can be used with any of these, as well as other devices like small solenoids, incandescent light bulbs, and hydraulic or pneumatic devices like small pumps and valves.
The board includes overcurrent protection and four Digital Inputs that can be used to convey the state of devices such as push buttons, limit switches, relays, and logic levels.
