The Pololu Simple Motor Controller makes basic control of brushed DC motors easy, with our free Simple Motor Control Center software enabling quick configuration over USB. The controller supports four interface modes: USB, TTL serial, analog voltage, and hobby radio control (RC). This version operates from 5.5 to 30 V and is efficient enough to deliver a continuous 7 A (>30 A peak) without a heat sink. It ships with the power capacitor and connectors included but not soldered in, allowing for custom installations.
