The RoboClaw Solo 60A is an intelligent motor controller designed to control one brushed DC motors at 60 Amps continuous with up to 100 Amps peak. It can be controlled from USB, RC radio, PWM, TTL serial, analog and microcontrollers such as an Arduino or Raspberry Pi.

RoboClaw automatically supports 3.3V or 5V logic levels, travel limit switches, home switches, emergency stop switches, power supplies, braking systems and contactors. Power supplies can be used by enabling the built in voltage clamping control feature. A built-in switching mode BEC supplies 5VDC at up to 1.2 Amps for powering user devices.

Brushed DC motors can be controlled in open or closed loop using position or velocity control modes. RoboClaw features several built-in commands for controlling acceleration, deceleration, distance, speed, current sense, voltage limits and more. RC and analog control modes also include several user defined settings such as acceleration and decelerate speeds.

Quadrature encoders with up to 19.6 million pulses per second are supported and can be auto tuned using Motion Studio which is a free downloadable application. In addition, a wide range of sensor inputs including potentiometers and absolute encoders are supported. RoboClaw's closed loop functionality creates absolute control over speed, velocity and direction regardless of load changes.

RoboClaw incorporates several protection features including temperature, current, over voltage and under voltage limits. The protection features are self monitoring and protect RoboClaw from damage in any operating condition. Several user definable settings such as maximum current limit, maximum and minimum battery voltages are provided for more refined control.

RoboClaw's regenerative capabilities will charge a supply battery during slow down or breaking. It's advance circuitry can change direction during full throttle without damage! RoboClaw also incorporates a LiPo cutoff mode to prevent battery damage.

    SOLO 60A

    Posted by Jeremy on May 4th 2022

    I bought this controller for a kids ride on toy. Current capacity, size, and power handling fits the application well. This controller had advanced modes of operation, including input from an MCU. But for my simple application, I am using 0-2v input fed from a hall pedal via a voltage divider. The advanced modes of operation offer very precise control, but the simplistic analog mode is missing a few desirable features. The main one being setting the max PWM duty that the controller will output. This would offer a crude way of limiting motor top speed when running open loop. As it stands, the controller output seems only limited by battery voltage. I had to construct the voltage divider in such a way as to limit max throttle input to simulate a limit. The only other way I can see to limit top speed is to add an encoder, go closed loop, and run in velocity mode. All, in all, pretty happy with it.
