Spike H-Bridge Relay

Spike H-Bridge Relay

P/N: 217-0220

Spike is a 20 Amp, H-Bridge Relay Module that is small enough to be remotely mounted almost anywhere on your robot. Spike is designed for driving small motors in forward, reverse, or stop (brake). Spike is opto-isolated at the signal input to protect the Robot Controller against motor noise and return currents. Requires a 3-wire cable for connection to the Robot Controller.

  • Ideal for 2 independent solenoids, light, pumps.
  • Design will accept auto-resetting circuit breaker.
  • Compact design.

Overview

The typical application is to power one motor with variable speed forward, reverse, or off (shunt brake).

Spike is not a PWM device. It can not be connected to an R/C hobby type receiver. The Spike is designed to plug into the Relay Ports from the NI roboRIO and legacy devices such as the FRC Digital Sidecar, Innovation First FRC-Robot Controller and Isaac16-RC.
