The controller's two channels can be operated independently or combined to set the direction and rotation of a vehicle by coordinating the motors on each side (tank-like steering). The motors may be operated in open or closed loop speed or position modes with a 1 kHz update rate. The HBL2350 can use the motor’s hall sensors or optical encoders to measure speed and travelled distance with high accuracy.
The HBL2350 features intelligent current sensing that will automatically limit each of the power outputs to 75 A in all load conditions. The controller also includes protection against overheat, stall, and short circuits.
The controller includes up to 11 analog, 19 digital and 6 pulse inputs. Eight 1A digital outputs are provided for activating lights, valves, brakes or other accessories. The controller’s operation can be optimized using nearly 80 configurable parameters, such as programmable acceleration or deceleration, amps limits, operating voltage range, use of I/O, and more.
