Cytron Maker Mini Sumo - Robot Controller, MAKER-MSUMO

£27.02 £22.52

The controller dedicated to Mini Sumo robots! Compatible with Arduino Nano and Arduino Uno boards. This board is a fantastic solution for beginners who would like to start playing with sumo robots, but are not yet able to fully design the control electronics themselves.


The module is powered from 7 V to 18 V DC, the power input is protected against reverse polarity. The cover allows to power two DC motors operating from 7 to 18 V, with current consumption up to 6 A.

The board is equipped with screw connectors, which reduces the risk of disconnection. It has 5 digital inputs to connect distance sensors, 2 analogue inputs to connect the Dohyo overrun sensors and a digital input to wake up the controller.

Additionally, the board has an output for servo and 2 general purpose I/O ports, which can be used both as an analogue input and digital input/output.
