SPARK Flex Motor Controller

Maximum Purchase:
50 units

The SPARK Flex is a new smart motor controller that is compatible with the REV ION System. Its dockable form factor allows for the direct mounting onto a NEO Vortex, simplifying wiring while maintaining flexibility. Improving upon the foundation of the SPARK MAX Motor Controller, new features include 3-phase current sensing, reverse polarity protection, and an expanded Data Port with additional interfaces. When docked to an adapter, the SPARK Flex can control any existing NEO or compatible brushless/brushed DC motor.

Add a SPARK Flex Data Port Breakout Cable or SPARK Flex Data Port Pigtail Cable to unlock the full potential of the SPARK Flex with the ability to add a REV Through Bore Encoder, quadrature and absolute encoders, limit switches and even utilize analog inputs!
