    The VEX Motor Controller 29 uses a standard PWM signal (like that originating from the 3-wire ports on VEX Microcontrollers) to drive a VEX 2-Wire Motor. This Motor Controller will allow you to use VEXplorer Motors with the VEX System.

    Each VEX Motor Controller can drive one 2-Wire Motor

    Motor Controller 29 Specs
    Max motor stall current: 3 A
    Max battery voltage: 8.5V (with fully charged 7.2V battery)
    PWM Input: 1-2ms will give full reverse to full forward, 1.5ms is neutral, 200ms for brake mode (like neutral, but motor terminals shunted together). Brake mode may not be supported by your compiler
    Input Cables: Black Wire - Ground, Orange Wire - Power, White Wire - PWM Signal
    Output Cables: Red and Black Wires - Motor Connection

    Note: We recommend using no more more than one (1) 3-Wire extension cable in between the Motor Controller 29 and a VEX Microcontroller. For longer extensions, use 2-Wire extension cables in between the Motor Controller 29 and a VEX 2-Wire motor.

    No problems so far. Great little MC. Small, compact, easy to use, and at a good price. Had a high priced MC fail on me twice before I ordered this one. I used a 2Cell but ive been told they work fine with a 3 and even a 4!

    Perfectly good controller - I'm impressed that the package is so small. My only hesitation is that these controllers die abruptly if the output is shorted when the motor is engaged. I recognize that this is difficult to engineer around, but it is an unfortunately characteristic!
