The Allegro Dog runs on 24VDC, and under normal conditions draws no more than 20 amps. The current required varies greatly with the algorithm and application. The dog can be powered via external power supplies or by multiple internal and external batteries.

Note When power is supplied to the power management system it will automatically turn on without any further action from the user. It is only powered off when the power supply is removed. Powering the internal computer and motor controllers requires further action.

Available directly off of the Allegro Dog's internal power management system are 24V/B, 12V and 5V internal power sources.

The motor controllers and motors are powered via the power management system's 24V/A output. Power to the motor controllers can be turned on using the Motor Controller/Motor Power Switch (No. 8 on the Control-I/O Panels) or the wireless remote.

Unlike the Motor Controller/Motor Power Switch, the wireless remote can both turn on and turn off the motor controller power (24V/A).
