Over the past 2 seasons, the SPARK has been the solid, low-cost motor controller of choice for FRC teams. As we enter our 3rd year producing the controllers, we have increased production efficiency and the market has changed. As such, we feel the time has come to lower the price on all SPARKs to $40 moving forward. We hope the extra $5 savings per controller helps teams accomplish more with their budgets this season.  

The REV Robotics SPARK Motor Controller is an inexpensive brushed DC motor controller designed to give FIRST® Robotics Competition teams more bang for their buck.

The Spark features 60A continuous current with passive cooling, bi-directional limit switch inputs for smart mechanism control, an RGB LED status indicator, and a button-activated brake/coast mode.
