The Talon FX is built upon years of development in motor controller technology from Cross the Road Electronics. The Talon FX is the next evolution of the Talon family of motor controllers, which continues to be a leader in FRC motor controller technology.
The Talon FX gives teams all the features they've come to expect from a Talon motor controller, such as
- Follow Mode
- Limit switch feedback
- On-board motion control using Motion Magic
The Talon FX is a Phoenix API compatible device. This means that teams can use their existing Phoenix based code to control the Talon FX - with only some minor changes required.
One new feature added to the Talon FX is that a 2048 CPR Encoder is now built-in, giving FRC teams of all skill and resource levels access to powerful motion control technology out of the box. No additional hardware needed.
One major change with the Talon FX is that there is no longer a Talon data port. This means that an external encoder can't be plugged directly into the Talon FX. However, teams can use CAN-based sensors as an input for Motion Magic.
The Talon FX is also capable of Field Oriented Control (FOC)!* Click here to learn more about this cutting-edge control method.
