The DCC1003 gives you complete control of two brushed DC motors with current ratings of up to 4 amps. It offers a compact enclosed form making it easy to fit into smaller projects. This Phidget connects to your computer through a VINT Hub.
This Phidget is a smart device that must be controlled by a VINT Hub. For more information about VINT, have a look at the VINT Primer. You can use a Phidget Cable to simply and easily connect the two devices. Here's a list of all of the different VINT Hubs currently available:
|Image||Part Number||Price||Number of VINT Ports||Controlled By|
|HUB5000_0||$60.00||6||Local Network (Ethernet or Wi-Fi)|
Use a Phidget cable to connect this device to the hub. You can solder multiple cables together in order to make even longer Phidget cables, but you should be aware of the effects of having long wires in your system.

Using motor controllers with large motors can pose a risk for your power supply. If your supply does not have protective features built-in, you can use a Power Guard Phidget to prevent damage from power spikes from back EMF that is generated when motors brake or change direction. We recommend that you use the SAF2000 for any motor with a current rating between 1 and 5 amperes, and the SAF1000 for motors above 5A.
We offer a wide variety of DC motors that can be used with this Phidget. Motors with higher gearbox ratios will have higher torque at the cost of lower speed. If you want a motor that has an encoder attached to it, skip ahead to the next table.

Linear actuators are simply DC motors that are hooked up to a linear screw which causes the shaft to move laterally instead of rotating. Unlike a rotary DC motor, linear actuators have a minimum and maximum position at which the shaft cannot contract or extend any further. On its own, the motor would not be smart enough to stop before attempting to push beyond these limits, possibly damaging the motor. That's why each linear actuator also has a built-in feedback potentiometer so you can monitor the position of the shaft and prevent the actuator from stalling out at its limits. The potentiometer can be read using one of the ports on your VINT Hub in VoltageRatioInput mode.

This Phidget requires a power supply between 8 and 30V DC. We recommend that you use a 12V DC power supply for smaller motors and a 24V supply for larger motors. Check your motor's specifications if you're not sure. For best performance, you should get a 5 amp supply. Select the power supply from the list below that matches your region's wall socket type.

Welcome to the DCC1003 user guide! In order to get started, make sure you have the following hardware on hand:
Next, you will need to connect the pieces:
Now that you have everything together, let's start using the DCC1003!
In order to demonstrate the functionality of the DCC1003, the Phidget Control Panel running on a Windows machine will be used.
The Phidget Control Panel is available for use on both macOS and Windows machines.
To open the Phidget Control Panel on Windows, find the icon in the taskbar. If it is not there, open up the start menu and search for Phidget Control Panel
To open the Phidget Control Panel on macOS, open Finder and navigate to the Phidget Control Panel in the Applications list. Double click on the icon to bring up the Phidget Control Panel.
For more information, take a look at the getting started guide for your operating system:
Linux users can follow the getting started with Linux guide and continue reading here for more information about the DCC1003.
After plugging the DCC1003 into your computer and opening the Phidget Control Panel, you will see something like this:
The Phidget Control Panel will list all connected Phidgets and associated objects, as well as the following information:
The Phidget Control Panel can also be used to test your device. Double-clicking on an object will open an example.
Control two brushed DC motors with a current rating of up to 4A with the DCC1003. With this Phidget, you can set the velocity (forward or reverse) and acceleration of your motor.
You can use your Control Panel to explore your Phidget's channels.
1. Open your Control Panel, and you will find the following channels:
2. Double click on a channel to open an example program. Each channel belongs to the DC Motor channel class:
In your Control Panel, double click on "DC Motor Controller":
Before you open a Phidget channel in your program, you can set these properties to specify which channel to open. You can find this information through the Control Panel.
1. Open the Control Panel and double-click on the red map pin icon:
2. The Addressing Information window will open. Here you will find all the information you need to address your Phidget in your program.
See the Phidget22 API for your language to determine exact syntax for each property.
