The ACT-M50 can supply a single DC brushed motor with up to 50A continuously. Peak currents of 100A are achievable for a few seconds.
Overcurrent and thermal protection means you'll never have to worry about killing the driver with accidental stalls or by hooking up too big a motor.
With just one driver you can control a motor with: Analog voltage, Radio control, Serial and packetized serial.
The operating mode is set with the onboard DIP switches so there are no jumpers to lose. It has screw terminal connectors - making it possible for you to build without even soldering.
It is synchronous regenerative motor driver in its class. The regenerative topology means that your batteries get recharged whenever you command your robot to slow down or reverse. Its also allows you to make very fast stops and reverses - giving your robot a quick and nimble edge.
It has a built in 5V BEC that can provide power to a microcontroller or R/C receiver. The lithium cutoff mode allows ACT-M50 to operate safely with lithium ion and lithium polymer battery packs - the highest energy density batteries available.
ACT-M50 transistors are switched at ultrasonic speeds (32kHz), meaning no one will be able to hear your robot ninja army approaching.
Use of ACT-M50 motor drivers with cheap AC adapters is not recommended. Use a battery or at least put a battery in parallel with a DC supply.
