Hi Dreamweaver! It's current controlled by default, but is reprogrammable to be anything in the continuum from current controlled to voltage controlled. It uses a LEM Hass current sensor for current feedback, hardware overcurrent protection (not connected with the microcontroller at all), and it uses a PI loop for keeping current proportional to throttle position.
