Programmable Power Guard Phidget

When high-power motor stalls or stops suddenly, it can generate a high-voltage surge that can damage the circuitry of the motor controller and burn out the power supply. This Power Guard Phidget is designed to protect your hardware from such an event by preventing current from flowing back into the power supply, and by providing a heatsink and fan for the excess power to dissipate. This board is designed for high current systems and is capable of protecting your equipment from even the largest of power spikes. Simply connect your power supply's positive wire to the 8-30V input lug, connect your device's positive wire to the output lug, and wire both grounds to the ground lug. The SAF1000 connects to a port on a VINT Hub. See Related products tab for a list of hubs.
