This motor speed controller is a compact, easy way to control the speed and direction of a brushed DC motor!
The case has four holes, spaced on a 32mm square. This allows the motor controller to align with the 8mm grid pattern found throughout the goBILDA lineup of parts. Simply grab some M4 hardware (the case is 12mm thick so make sure to get screws that will reach through the case and into a nut or threads in a nearby part) and fasten it down. Have multiple motor controllers? - Stack them! If you're not working with goBILDA parts, and just need to fasten the motor controller to a surface that is void of any holes, use the case as a template to mark the proper hole locations. The mounting holes have a 4mm diameter which is also compatible with #8 (yes, imperial) screws if your DIY project has you digging through random bits of hardware to piece your project together.
The board has safety features built in to protect it from silly wiring errors and/or punishment beyond what it should be asked to hold up to. While the XT30 connector itself is keyed, we know that sometimes input connectors get removed and/or replaced so we added reverse voltage protection. The board also has over current protection that will kick in if your motor is pulling so much current that there's risk of damaging the board. In similar fashion, if the motor controller gets too hot, it will shut down until the temperature reduces to a reasonable level. The case itself is another line of defense, protecting the electronics within from physical abuse as your project gets bashed around.
