This DC motor driver shield uses L298P chip which allows control of two 5 - 26V DC brush motors with 0.8Amp continuous current each channel. This shield can be directly stacked onto standard Arduino UNO, Duemilanove, Leonardo, Mega and also CIKU (PIC18F4550).

We have added a few special features onto this shield. Motor power polarity protection, also fast test or manual control buttons for each channel of motor. Adding LSS05 (Auto-calibration line sensor) to Arduino will be easy as this shield comes with the socket for it.

The speed control is achieved through conventional PWM which can be obtained from Arduino's PWM output pin 5 and 6. The enable/disable of motor driver is controlled by Arduino pin 4 and 7, this is labeled as Signed magnitude control. You have option to configure it to become Locked Anti-phase which uses PWM signal to decide direction, speed and also start/stop of motor. The control modes can be configured from jumpers and also program.

The Motor shield can be powered directly from Arduino or from external power source (jumper to select). It is strongly encouraged to use external power supply to power the motor shield.

Specifications and Features:
  • Logic control, 5V from Arduino main board
  • Polarity protection for External motor power input
  • 2 fast test buttons for each motor channel
  • 2 indicator LEDs for each channel
  • bi-directional control of two DC brush motor
  • Motor Driven Voltage:6.5 to 12VDC(VIN Power Supply), 5.0 to 26VDC (External Power Source)
  • 0.8Amp continuous current for each channel (peak 2Amp)
  • Pin 4, 5,6,7 are used to drive two DC motor
  • Support PWM speed control
  • Support  advance speed control
  • Socket for LSS05 - Auto-Calibrating Line Sensor, doing line following robot will be easy

Can be use with Arduino due? ( Muhammad Syafiq Ramli, 14/10/2018 )
Hi, yes it can :)
Hi, can this 2A driver motor shield support 2 motors and 2 encoders dagu rover 5? ( Chang, 15/03/2018 )
Hi, this shield supports 2 channel DC motor, but it doesn't have encoder input connector. For further questions, please visit to our technical forum for similar question or post your question there, as this session is only for short inquiry. Thanks.
can i know when it will be restock? ( Ahmad bin Sidik Mat Sidek, 08/03/2018 )
Hi, it will be restocked within 1 week. Thanks.
Can I stack this motor driver to control 6 dc motor? ( Safuan, 21/11/2017 )
Hi, this shield can't be stacked more than one on Arduino board. For further questions, please visit to our technical forum for similar question or post your question there, as this session is only for short inquiry. Thanks.
can this driver control 3 dc motors ? ( fAIRUZ, 17/07/2017 )
Hi, sorry this motor driver only for driving 2 motors only. You might consider using Cytron 4 Channel Motor Driver. Thanks.

Is there any slddrw file for this product? ( Designer, 09/05/2017 )
Hi, sorry we don't have slddrw file for this product. If you have further question, you can go to our technical forum, as this session short inquiry. Thanks.
hi~ can i know how soon it will be restock? ( huifen, 05/05/2017 )
Hi, it will restock in 1 week, thanks for your patience. :)
Hi, what is the voltage value required for the 2 DC gear motors if the gear motors were connected to the 2Amp Motor Driver Shield? ( Puteri, 17/11/2016 )

Hi,

It uses L298P chip which allows control of two 5 - 26V DC brush motors with a maximum of 2A current each channel.

If you have further question, you can ask at our technical forum, as this session is only for short inquiry. Thanks. :) ?

 

Hi, i'm building 3 wheel drive robot which require me to control 3 motor independently. Can i stack 2 shields together? Arduino UNO 2A Motor Shield x2 PS2 Shield ( ASD, 18/10/2016 )

Hi,

Yes sure you can stack the motor driver shield together.

If you have further question, you can ask at our technical forum, as this session is only for short inquiry. Thanks. :)

is it compatible with dc geared motor too? ( TAN, 06/10/2016 )

Hi, yes. It is compatible with DC Geared Motor.

If you have further question, you can ask at our technical forum, as this session is only for short inquiry. Thanks. :)
