150A USB Brushless DC Motor Controller with Hall Sensor Inputs, Encoder Feedback, and CAN Interface, 10-60V
Roboteq's HBL16xx is a high-current controller for hall-sensor equipped Brushless DC motors. The controller uses the position information from the sensors to sequence power on the motor's 3 windings in order to generate smooth continuous rotation. The controller also uses the Hall sensor information to compute speed and measure travelled distance inside a 32-bit counter.
The controller features a high-performance 32-bit microcomputer and quadrature encoder inputs to perform advanced motion control algorithms in Open Loop or Close Loop (Speed or Position) modes. The HBL16xx features a high number of Analog, Pulse and Digital I/Os which can be remapped as command or feedback inputs, limit switches, or many other functions.
Numerous safety features are incorporated into the controller to ensure reliable and safe operation. The controller's operation can be extensively automated and customized using Basic Language scripts. The controller can be reprogrammed in the field with the latest features by downloading new operating software from Roboteq.
