Veronte GIM3

General Description

Veronte GIM3 is our Electronic Speed Controller, ESC, for critical actuator control. It can be controlled via PWM signals, or through CAN or I2C busses. This motor controller can track motor position reading encoders data as it comes with built-in control mechanisms.
