The L298N based motor driver board can be used to control two brushed dc motors or a 4 wire stepper motor with a continual current of up to 2A per motor. With optical isolation this board is resistant to interference and the on board voltage regulator can supply 5V ~1400mA to your microcontroller. A large heat sink cools the L298N chip and there are lots of LEDs so you know what's happening.
Our Code: MCU-60110
The motor driver is based on the popularL298 chip. It has a peak current of 2A per motor and can be controlled via TTL from any microcontroller with 3.3-5V inputs. Use to control two brushed DC motors or one stepper motor. Continuous current protection is enabled via the sensing resistors and 1N4007 diodes provide back EMF protection.
A Toshiba TPL521-4 Photocoupler isolates the logic circuits from the noisy motor driver reducing interference to your microcontroller.
The on-board LM7805 regulator can be used to supply logic power of ~1400mA to the board or external microcontroller with a supply of 7-35V.
Motor connections, power and ground are made easily using the screw terminals while logic connections are provided on a 0.1" header for easy connection using jumper leads.
LED's are provided to show motor direction and power supply.
