VClamp for RoboClaw or MCP Controllers


The VClamp, a unique product for RoboClaw and MCP motor controllers, is designed to be used with switching power supplies. Its primary function is to dissipate excess regenerative energy through a connected external resistor (which is not included in the package). This innovative product connects directly to the motor power supply and derives logic power and signals from the RoboClaw or MCP controller. The clamping voltage can be easily adjusted using the Basicmicro Motion Studio software. With the ability to handle peak voltages and currents up to 60V and 60A, the VClamp is a robust and reliable choice. An added feature is the status LED, which informs you when the voltage is being clamped.

The VClamp is versatile and can be used in various applications. For instance, it is ideal for robotics enthusiasts who are looking to enhance their motor controllers' performance. By dissipating excess regenerative energy, the VClamp can prevent the power supply from being overloaded, thereby increasing its lifespan and ensuring optimal performance.

One of the unique properties of the VClamp is its compatibility with both RoboClaw and MCP motor controllers. This makes it a flexible choice for users who work with different types of motor controllers in their projects. It's also user-friendly, thanks to the Basicmicro Motion Studio software, which allows users to easily set the clamping voltage according to their needs.

Another significant advantage of the VClamp is its ability to handle high peak voltages and currents, which can reach up to 60V and 60A. This makes it a robust and reliable choice for demanding applications. The status LED is a practical feature that keeps users informed about the voltage status, adding an extra layer of safety and control.
