Veronte Motor Controller

General Description

Veronte Motor Controller is a CAN or I2C controlled ESC for critical actuator control. With built-in control mechanisms it tracks motor position by reading encoders. It can be configured for receiving position or speed commands. Embedded PID control algorithms manages motor position as an absolute value or relative to a gyroscope.
