MD80 V2.1 motor controller

MD80 V2.1 motor controller

MD80 V2.0 is the second revision of our integrated brushless motor controller. It's even more capable than before - up to 48V operation with peak current of 80A, minimized cogging torque and almost silent operation thanks to improved measurements and power stage. External encoder capability and software controlled CAN-FD termination.
The MD80 V2.0 is specifically designed to meet the needs of mobile robotics. This new motor controller delivers maximum performance, energy-efficiency and reliability, making it an ideal solution for demanding applications. It is designed to be user-friendly, with an intuitive interface that makes it easy to program and adjust the settings as needed. During the prototyping phase, the MD80 can work seamlessly with the CANdle device, providing a quick and easy way to test and refine your ideas. Once you're ready to move to production, the MD80 can be used as a standalone solution, with all the features and capabilities you need to take your project to the next level.
