Next Shipping Day 3rd December

We are now in the process of moving Technobots 120 miles North to the Town of Rugby. You can still place orders on-line as normal but they will not be dispatched until after we re-open on the 3rd December

Machining Services

Our machine shop is also being re-located so we are unable to carry out machining modifications on gears, sprockets, pulleys etc. Any order placed which includes machining options is unlikely to be processed until mid December.


Powered Wheel Hub Motors

The HUB-ee is a type of robot servo but designed for wheels, in fact it is a wheel, but it is also a motor, a sensor and a motor controller.

When you want to add wheels to your robot you would normally start with a whole collection of parts: The motor and gearbox, a motor driver board, and maybe some sensors for measuring wheel speed and a controller to count revolutions or provide closed loop speed control.

Creative Robotics thought it would be handy if you could just buy a wheel that had all of those things build in so they set about designing one and the result is the HUB-ee - just bolt it onto a chassis, apply power and away you go!

 

  • Removable 12mm gearmotor - available in a range of gear ratios (currently available 20:1 and 30:1)
  • Integrated, open source PCB with:
    • Motor driver IC
    • 32 stripe (128 counts per revolution) quadrature encoder
  • Designed for tyres or tank tracks
  • Two internal threaded inserts (metric M3 or imperial 4/40) make it easy to bolt on to a chassis.
  • LEGO®
  • Compatible mounting sockets (with a Mindstorms NXT compatible PCB coming soon!)

They are easy to take apart so you can remove or replace the motor or electronics, and we are developing a range of different circuit boards with features ranging from LEGO NXT compatibility to full closed loop speed control (so you can plug it in and control it as easily as a hobby servo).

Pronunciation? ... It's HUB as in wheel hub, with an ee as in e-mail.
