I am considering the Sabertooth 2x10RC Motor Controller as advertised in the latest Servo magazine. I am curious about the following text I quoted from their website. How exactly do the batteries get recharged by a slowing or stopping motor ? Does it just mean that momentum keeps the bot moving after current is cutoff, and the motors act as a generator until it stops ?
"Sabertooth is the first synchronous regenerative motor driver in its class. The regenerative topology means that your batteries get recharged whenever you command your robot to slow down or reverse."
Thanks ! JCD
