optimization. With current and thermal
limiting of armature and field
sections, current limited contactor
I/O, automotive quality AMPSEAL™
connectors, and rugged highly ingress
resistant ABS case, the TSX is fully
protected. TSX supports Hall Effect,
resistive, and inductive throttle
types. Some TSX models have a full CAN
interface and can be slaved with to
another TSX for dual-motor control.

all settings including current limits,
maximum speeds in both forward and
reverse, and battery over-discharge
protection.
