The FBL2360 designed for use with automatic guided vehicles (AGVs), warehouse automation robots, or any other high power brushless motor control application. The controller accepts commands from either analog pedal/joystick, standard R/C radio for simple remote controlled robot applications, USB or RS232 interface. Using the serial port, the FBL2360 can be used to design fully or semi-autonomous robots by connecting it to single board computers, wireless modems or WiFi adapters.

The FBL2360 incorporates a Basic Language Interpreter capable of executing over 50,000 Basic instructions per second. This feature can be used to write powerful scripts for adding custom functions, or for developing automated systems without the need for an external PLC or microcomputer. The controller's two channels can be operated independently or combined to set the direction and rotation of a vehicle by coordinating the motors on each side. The motors may be operated in open or closed loop speed or position modes with a 1 kHz update rate. The FBL2360 can use the motor's hall sensors or optical encoders to measure speed and travelled distance with high accuracy.

The controller includes up to 8 analog, 10 digital and 6 pulse inputs. Four 1A digital outputs are provided for activating lights, valves, brakes or other accessories. The controller's operation can be optimized using nearly 80 configurable parameters, such as programmable acceleration or deceleration, amps limits, operating voltage range, use of I/O, and more.
