The Oxford Research – Lynx motor controller facilitates the management of up to 4 simple, DC motors on single unit via ‘I squared C’ (I2C) commands, It will receive I2C format commands and convert those in to operations by the motor.
Units can be stacked to allow control of many motors. Should you require STEPPER MOTOR control, please contact Oxford Research LLC.
The logic is powered by the host PC and the motor by power introduced to the Oxford-Lynx unit. The motors can be 1.5 to 48 volts DC at up to 25 wats per motor. Higher power can be obtained up to 100 watts for Oxford Lynx board.
The units are stackable and multiple units can be used on the same I2C line simultaneously subject to the power limitations of the local I2C line. If all I2C ports were available, and all boards had 4 motors this would permit the control of a maximum of 512 motors on a single I2C line.
The units are configured to connect easily to a Raspberry Pi PCB using the 40 pin header and the primary I2C lines.
