XMotion is Arduino Compatible all in one robot controller. Which designed especially for robotics, IoT and maker projects.
It includes powerful Motor drivers, switching mode regulator, interface circuits and more. With protected features, it is all in one board for lots of different types of robot projects.
But not only this. Also we added some supporting materials, like starter codes, libraries. If you want to do line follower, mini-sumo or any basic robot we have ready-made codes for beginners.
ONE BOARD TO RULE THEM ALL!
At first glance if you plan to do robotics projects (For educational or hobby projects) there is lots of controller boards In market, but this boards are not practical and user friendly. At same time they are not giving same performance specs as XMotion. 8x3 cm size comes very handy for all projects.
Secondly, XMotion's developing potential is huge! If you work for robot project, always you need to aim the highest. XMotion gives you this chance.
First of all it is Arduino compatible! VERY EASY TO PROGRAM WITH ARDUINO SOFTWARE.
And it has lots of superior features. We can shortly say power in your hand. Just look to bottom image:
What is that strong features?
Small dimension. It was very important factor at our design, small but at same time stabilized design. We managed to make 80x30x12mm dimension board without rectricts.
6 Ampere x 2 Motor drive outputs. This outputs can supply high currents and gives juice more than enough for small robotics projects. When compared with traditional boards 6 Ampere triples, doubles the other boards. Also they are protected for short circuits.
Voltage input protected for reverse connection. At full current voltage drop at reverse connection mosfet is only 60 millivolts!
Built-in regulator can work up to 28V! (For generic Arduino boards this voltage is 15V with lots of heat) XMotion never heats.
At bottom you can program with micro USB. Main Mcu (ATMEGA 32U4) preloaded with Arduino Leonardo Software. Very easy to program.
For analog reading, we used presicion LC T filter at design. Analog readings are more accurate without electrical noise.
Board has analog input elements like voltage sensor, trimpot. With voltage sensor you can create Low battery stopping functions or Working speed vs input voltage functions.
You can connect up to 8 sensors or interface circuits with built-in pads at bottom.
For more understanding please look to comparison table
Now, if we summarize the features of XMotion:
All digital and analog output sensors can be used with XMotion. Unfortunately I2C output sensors are not avaible on hardware connection. With 8 protected Inputs also you can connect directly PNP output 12V sensors like Omron, Keyence sensors... Here some models suitable to XMotion
