£140.76 £117.30

Control up to two DC motors with this controller. Monitors surges and overheating in the API and connects to a USB port.


The PhidgetMotorControl HC allows you to control the angular velocity and acceleration of up to two high-current DC motors.

The 1064:

  • Provides bi-directional control to 2 DC motors
  • Requires external 6 to 15VDC Power Supply
  • USB port is isolated from the motor control outputs
  • Over voltage, over temperature, over current conditions are fed back to the API on the PC

Many variations of brushed DC motors exist: permanent magnet motors, electromagnet motors, coreless motors, linear motors... the PhidgetMotorController can be used with any of these. 

Comes Packaged with


Hardware mounting kit:

  • 4x M3 Bolts (2cm Length)
