This part seems to be the favorite of hobby robot builders. D1 – D8 are used for this purpose. The two enable pins should be tied together. Shown in figure 3 the power amps have connected in parallel for double the power at the cost of operating one bi-directional load such as a DC motor. Motor Driver Truth Tables Here are some handy tables to show the various modes of operation.
Follow the steps below to configure the motor controller board to work as a typical robot motor driver for moor with two DC motors. The four amplifiers are usually used in pairs forming an H-bridge to switch polarity for to control the direction of a single DC motor or as two pairs of H-bridges a bi-polar stepper motor.
The current sense pins in general can be tied to ground, but one can insert low value resistor, whose voltage reading is proportional to current. An onboard 5V regulator is provided that can be used to power other parts of your robot’s circuitry such as an Arduino microcontroller.
This will result in the motors stopping l2889 and naturally from friction.
Arduino Motor Shield (L298N) (SKU:DRI0009)
Connect these pins to digital outputs on your robots microcontroller. Basic circuit configuration LN. It is powerful enough to drive motors from V at up to 2A peak. Internally the LN consists of four independent power amps with 5-volt digital inputs and four high current, high voltage power amplifiers capable of driving single DC motors, and both unipolar and bi-polar stepper motors.
In this series we will explore how to use the LN in a number of actual tested and functioning circuits. Refer to the details below. I have used more common 1N rectifier diodes and they seem to work fine.
Do not enable the onboard 5V regulator if you are supplying more than 16V to motors on pin 3 or the regulator will burn out. One of the annoying features mogor the unit is the lack of internal parasitic flywheel diodes to deal with voltage spikes.
Here are some handy tables to show the various modes of operation.
When these pins are HIGH, power is output to the motor. As shown in the above illustrations I have redrawn the mitor package into a more understandable form. Note that “forward” and “backwards” refer to the direction of the motors themselves. Web site Copyright Lewis LoflinAll rights reserved. By using PWM, you are turning power on and off very quickly to adjust the speed of the motor. The two enable mitor should be tied together.
Shown in figure 3 the power amps have connected in parallel for double the power at the cost of operating one bi-directional load such as a DC motor. It features a powerful LN motor driver module with a heavy duty heat sink. In the proceeding sections we will connect the LN to a micro-controller to operate a bi-polar stepper motor and explore using pulse-width-modulation PWM to control motor speed on a standard DC motor.
The motors will come to an instant stop. Usage Follow the steps below to configure the motor controller board to work as a typical robot motor driver for use with two DC motors.
How to use the LN Dual H-Bridge Motor Driver
D1 – D8 are used for this purpose. Welcome visitor you can login or create an account. The same method is used to control Motor B: This completes our introduction to the LN dual full bridge driver. All inputs are TTL compatible.
This is in my opinion the smart way to go to save time, money, and effort. This included power connectors, l28, LED indicators, and even a 5-volt regulator.

Otherwise you must input 5V regulated power at pin mktor so that the circuit can operate properly. Take care to parallel channel1 with channel 4 and channel 2 with channel 3.
Leave the jumper connected when not using current sense. They can be 1N Schottky diodes.
