Roboteq, Inc is a private corporation founded in 2002 by Embedded System, Power Electronics and Motor Control Specialists.

Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV's)

An automated guided vehicle (AGV) can be built with as little as two Roboteq components: An MGS1600C magnetic guide sensor, and one of the many dual channel motor controllers available in Roboteq’s catalog.

This video uses a Roboteq MDC2260 dual channel controller, however the techniques described are identical for all other controller models.


AC Induction Motor Controllers

AC Induction motors are industry workhorses thanks to their simple and inexpensive construction. They are commonly used in traction for electric vehicles. AC Induction motors are being used increasingly in robotics and automation applications thanks to advanced electronic controls. Roboteq offers a growing line of single and dual channel Variable Frequency Drives for AC Induction motors, ranging from 60A to 500A per channel. Just match the voltage and current rating using our Product Tables below, or the Product Finder.
AC Induction motors are among the simplest to interface. This is due to their only requiring a 3-wire connection to operate in their most basic mode. More efficient control can be achieved using advanced algorithms, such as Field Oriented Control (FOC).

Battery Management Systems

Roboteq’s BMS10x0 is a battery management and protection system for building cost-effective, customizable, ultra-efficient and high current power sources using all Lithium Ion chemistry batteries. Roboteq’s BMS10x0 is a Centralized System for 6 to 15 cell Battery Packs and incorporates versatile, configurable system and cell parameters.
With all of the features of the BMS10x0 combined into one product, its applications are almost limitless. Whether it’s mobile robots, electric vehicles, or personal mobility devices, the BMS10x0 is the ideal battery management system for any 12V to 60V device or system employing an ion lithium battery pack of 10 to 1000Ah capacity.

Brushed DC motor controller

Brushed DC Motor Controllers

Brushed DC motors are the most common and least expensive motor types. Choose from five product families and several product references of single, dual or triple channel motor controllers for brushed DC motors, ranging from 20A to 500A per channel.

Mobile Robots need two motors to move and steer, and only Roboteq can make this work with a single controller. Compared to the traditional One Motor/One Controller approach, the Dual Channel is simpler, cheaper, easier to integrate and maintain.
Motors are coordinated within the controllers, resulting in superior and safer drive characteristics.

How Playful Learning Benefits the Classroom

Playful learning is one of the main ways in which children learn and develop. It helps to build self-worth by giving a child a sense of his or her own abilities and to feel good about themselves. Because it’s fun, children often become very absorbed in what they are doing. Continue reading →
