Hardware used:K8055N (VM110 means that the card and already assembled)
A Sabertooth 2x12
200W ATX from PC
Stabilized power supply 30A
2 potentiometers of 10 kOhmElectrical wiring diagram definitiveBefore you begin, the better to know some things:We start from the VM110 K8055I report what I wrote on the site of various manufacturers
This card, connected to the PC via the USB port, allows you to control the analog and digital as well as to "read" both analog and digital inputs. To that end comes a special software to be loaded on your PC.
This first interesting application there is another, perhaps more importantly, are in fact provided all the software tools to allow anyone to create a customized program. To facilitate this operation, on the board there are some resources to simulate the input signals of various kinds as well as signaling LED on the various outputs. The interface has 5 digital inputs and 8 digital outputs, 2 analog inputs and 2 analog outputs, 2 PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) with a resolution of 8 bits. The number of inputs / outputs can be further expanded by connecting up to a maximum of 4 cards to the PC's USB connector. Each card has its own identification number by means of two jumpers, SK5 and SK6. With the card comes with a complete set of software source code that can handle all the resources that all inputs and all outputs.
All communication routines are contained in the Dynamic Link Library (DLL) K8055D.DLL supplied with the kit along with some examples of use in Visual Basic, Visual C + +, Visual C #, Excel, Delphi and Borland C + + builder. Anyone with these tools, you can create a customized control panel! USB cable included.Warning:
For your tests with the included software to keep the two jumpers, SK5 and SK6 then when you connect the potentiometers remove themSabertooth 2x12A
Power module for the control of two motors with brushes in DC medium power (10 ... 15A), various systems for interfacing, great versatility ', compact size.
The Sabertooth 2X12 and 'the ideal choice for small robot propulsion differential (2, 4, 6 wheels). Great for combat robots or robots up to 13.6Kg to 45Kg or up to general use in any application where it is required to control 2 motors with brushes.
This module can 'supply two DC brush motors up to 12A of continuous output, peak 25A are admitted for short periods. The Sabertooth 2X12 and 'endowed with current limiting and thermal protection, there is no' then no need 'to worry about damaging the module in case of accidental stalls or by connecting the motors of the robot motors are too large.I recommend:
Move the switch # 4 OFF to ON and all others to pass in analog mode
Analog control, linear, independent: a 0V to 5V analog input is connected to terminals S1 and S2. 0V is full reverse, 5V is full forward, 2.5V is stop.ATX Pc
The ATX 200w, it has served to fuel the potentiometers in practice the 5V and 12V for the cooling fans that I was only available
But you can also use a more powerful I think at least 400W and 20A must support at least up to feed the Sabertooth putting a 10W resistor between the positive and negative 12V 5V to have a stable, then if you want to buy a power supply incasinarvi life For example, I already stabilized I've got a 30A to 18 euroStabilized power supply 30ADescription
Necessary tool for those who specialize in professional jobs such as plant related to video surveillance, cartellonistiche bright LED light plants for decorations and all electrical applications that need a high amperage, but particularly need a continuous supply of energy and clean, high quality. With this stabilized power supply for professional use continues, by the precious strength and with a protection system for any overloads likely to short circuits and not least importantly, the excess of fluctuations at high temperatures. And 'provided output to 12 volts with 30 amps and trimmer for more precise adjustments. General Specifications:
Rated Input: AC 110/220 Volt + / - 10%;
Output current: 12 Volts DC (2 pairs of terminals) Max 30 Amps continuous;
Dimensions: (W) 11.5 x (L) 21.3 x (H) 5 cm.Wiper Motors
Engines fine for what we do and are cheap enough for you to connect the brown and green are the highest speed eliminated the orange wire that would be the low-speedPush button
This element, and very important because it removes the power supply voltage which in turn feeds the Sabertooth and motors
You must know that if you give direct current motors go full speed x-sim with the various settings controls the motors and potentiometers which give the position of the engine if by chance you forget to disconnect power to the motor and close the first x-sim controls them engines go to full speed and then do the full tour means that the system that connects the potentiometers and the engine breaks
So before schendere and close the simulator x-sim and good press that button.Potentiometers of 10 kOhm
These serve to give the position of the motor K8055 ranging from 0 to 1000% = maximum speed direction negative = 5V
100% = maximum speed direction Positives = 5V
50% = Stop = 2.5 V
Then those in the middle from 10% to 40% and 60% to 90%
are lower speeds in one direction or the other
My advice is to take those precision as those you see in the picture
