Note: MDD10A shipped after Jan 2017 is in Rev2.0 which Vmotor supports up to 30VDC.

DC brushed motor is the most commonly used and widely available motor in the market. Getting the motor to rotate is fairly easy, just connect the two terminals to power source and it will start spinning, that's the beauty of DC brushed motor. Yet, if you want to control the speed, direction, activation and automate all these functions, check out this tutorial: 5 easiest ways to control a DC motor. And using motor driver is one of the ways. MDD10A is one of Cytron's motor driver series which offers easy to use features and it can drive two independent motors.

MDD10A is the dual-channel version of MD10C which is designed to drive 2 brushed DC motors with high current up to 10A continuously. Like MD10C, MDD10A also supports locked-antiphase and sign-magnitude PWM signal. It uses full solid state components that offers faster response time and eliminates the wear and tear of the mechanical relay.

It can supports Vmotor from 5V to 30VDC. With the presoldered terminals, and on-board manual/test buttons, you can get started even without any microcontroller. Check the video out:

Nonetheless, it is compatible with Arduino or any microcontroller that can output logic signal at 3.3V or 5.0V, and that includes Arduino Zero and Arduino Micro. And not to forget the famous Raspberry Pi SBC too.

Which motor is good to be driven by MDD10A? As long as the motor:

  • Is DC Brush motor (Two Terminals)
  • Operating voltage from 5V to 30V
  • Rated Current <= 10A
  • Peak Current <= 30A

Example of suitable DC brush motor with MDD10A (Not limit to):

Features:

  • Bi-directional control for two brushed DC motors.
  • Support motor voltage ranges from 5V to 30VDC (Rev2.0).
  • No Reverse Polarity Protection at Vmotor, please double check the polarity before power up.
  • Maximum current up to 10A continuous and 30A peak (10 seconds) for each channel.
  • Support 3.3V and 5V logic level input (for PWM and DIR), compatible with Arduino and Raspberry Pi.
  • Solid state components provide faster response time and eliminate the wear and tear of mechanical relay.
  • Full NMOS H-Bridge for better efficiency and no heat sink is required.
  • Regenerative Braking.
  • Speed control PWM frequency up to 20KHz (output frequancy is same and input frequancy).
  • Support both Locked-Antiphase and Sign-Magnitude PWM operation. ** Note this is not "RC PWM"
  • 2 activation buttons for manual activation or fast test on each channel.
  • Dimension: 84.5mm x 62mm

Is there a file for custom pcb design for this? For example, I am trying to design a custom PCB board using Autodesk Eagle, or some other EDA software. So is there a file that I can get access for printing my board based on this design. ( MattD, 14/03/2020 )
Hi, you may drop an email to support@cytron.io for such inquiry. Thanks :)
hi, can u give me a fritzing library for the MDD10A?? I desperately need it ( Melvin , 22/02/2020 )
Hi, you may refer to the files under 'Documents' on the product page. You may refer to this link too. Thanks :)
Hi,why there is no MDD10A library for Fritzing?if have, i desperately want it
( Melvin , 22/02/2020 )
Hi, you may refer to the files under 'Documents' on the product page. You may refer to this link too. Thanks :)
why MDD10A Cannot Detect Bluetooth Using Arduino ? ( melvin, 11/02/2020 )
Hi, you may drop an email to support@cytron.io for technical assistance. Thanks :)
why MDD10A cannot detect bluetooth with arduino ( melvin, 11/02/2020 )
Hi, you may drop an email to support@cytron.io for technical assistance. Thanks :)
Hello, does this product have
Overcurrent protection with active current limiting.
Temperature protection.
Undervoltage shutdown.
as have simillar product SHIELD-MDD10?
If not do you have same product with these protections but not with Arduino shield? Thank you
( Radek, 16/10/2019 )
Hi! You may email to support@cytron.io for technical assistance. Thanks :)
Is this motor driver can be control using myrio? ( Kesaran , 28/09/2019 )
Hi! We're sorry we do not have the library for this.:)
Hi, how can I get the cad file for this motor driver since the cad file can't be downloaded via the link. ( LAM AN CIAT, 27/09/2019 )
Hi! We have repaired our system. You can download the file now. :)
Can it support stepper motor? ( Sam, 06/09/2019 )
It cannot support with stepper motor. However, we do have different stepper motors available too. You may refer to this link for more information: https://my.cytron.io/c-motor-and-motor-driver/c-dc-motor/c-stepper-motor
My Mdd10A cant power a motor more than 2sec burst even if i continue to press the button with all things wired correctly can you help? ( Afonso Bernardino, 07/06/2019 )
Hi, you may email to support@cytron.io We will help you with details.
