Pololu 1394 Jrk 21v3 USB Motor Controller with Feedback (Fully Assembled)

The Jrk 21v3 is a versatile, general-purpose motor controller that supports a variety of interfaces, including USB. The broad operating range from 5 V to 28 V and continuous output current of 3 A (5 A peak) allow this board to control most small DC brushed motors. Analog voltage and tachometer (frequency) feedback options allow quick implementation of closed-loop servo systems, and a free configuration utility (for Windows) allows easy calibration and configuration through the USB port. A USB A to mini-B cable (not included) is required to connect this controller to a computer.

Key improvements over competing products and earlier Pololu motor controllers with feedback include:

  • USB connectivity with emulated serial (COM) port allows direct motor control from a PC
  • Ultrasonic PWM to eliminate switching-induced motor shaft hum or whine
  • Robust, high-speed communication protocol with user-configurable error condition response
  • High internal resolution (12 bits) for smooth and flexible calibration to various input and feedback devices
  • Current sensing and limiting
  • Reversed power protection
  • Field-upgradeable firmware

  • 3 A maximum continuous current output (5 A peak).
  • Four communication or control options:
    1. USB interface for direct connection to a PC.
    2. Full-duplex, TTL-level asynchronous serial interface for direct connection to microcontrollers or other embedded controllers.
    3. Hobby radio control (RC) pulse width interface for direct connection to an RC receiver or RC servo controller.
    4. 0 V to 5 V analog voltage interface for direct connection to potentiometers and analog joysticks.
  • Two closed-loop feedback options:
    1. 0 V to 5 V analog voltage.
    2. Frequency/tachometer digital input up to 2 MHz with 1 ms PID period. 
      (Open-loop control with no feedback also available.)

 

  • Simple configuration and calibration over USB with free configuration program for Windows.
  • Configurable parameters include:
    • PID period and PID constants (feedback tuning parameters).
    • Maximum current.
    • Maximum duty cycle.
    • Maximum acceleration.
    • Error response.
    • Input calibration (learning) for analog and RC control.

Fantastic little controller!!

Pololu's JRK controllers are amazing with huge power from a tiny board. Very fine control using a joystick and ability to program it via its own USB connector make this a remarkable motor control board.It's also bulletproof as I've discovered!!Thoro
