Basic Motor Driver

15.95

The Basic Motor Driver shield is a motor driver for two brush DC motors or one bipolar stepper motor. Rated for 30V and 2A peak current operation, the Basic Motor Driver is one of the lowest-cost medium-power motor driver solutions available for Arduino. The shield is directly compatible with the Ruggeduino, Arduino Uno, Duemilanove, and Mega, or can be used as a standalone motor driver with any microcontroller board. The Basic Motor Driver is also easy to embed into robot platforms or multi-axis motor control systems.
