1064_1B Phidget HC DC Motor Controller




The 1064_1B Phidget HC DC Motor Controller allows you to control the angular velocity and acceleration of up to two high-current DC motors.

The HC DC Motor Controller

  • Provides bi-directional control to 2 DC motors
  • Requires external 6 to 15VDC Power Supply
  • USB port is isolated from the motor control outputs
  • Over voltage, over temperature, over current conditions are fed back to the API on the PC

Many variations of brushed DC motors exist: permanent magnet motors, electromagnet motors, coreless motors, linear motors… the PhidgetMotorController can be used with any of these.

Note: The 1064_1B is identical to the 1064_1, except that you have the option of whether you want to include the USB cable.

1064_1B Phidget HC DC Motor Controller comes packaged with

  • A Hardware mounting kit (4 nuts and bolts (M3), 4 plastic spacers)
