Roboteq's KBL1660 is a rugged, feature-packed, high-current single channel controller for brushless DC motors. Built in a water and dirt resistant enclosure, the controller can operate in one of several modes in order to sense the rotor position and sequence power on the motor's 3 windings in order to generate smooth continuous rotation. The controller also uses the Hall sensor and/or Encoder information to compute speed and measure traveled distance. The motor's may be operated in open or closed loop speed mode, position mode or in torque mode.
The KBL1660 features several Analog, Pulse and Digital I/Os which can be remapped as command or feedback inputs, limit switches, or many other functions. The KBL1660 accepts commands received from an RC radio, Analog Joystick, wireless modem, or microcomputer. Using CAN bus, up to 127 controllers can be networked at up to 1Mbit/s on a single twisted pair.
The controller's operation can be extensively automated and customized using Basic Language scripts. The controller can be configured, monitored and tuned in real-time using 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.
