Rugged Motor Driver


Rugged Motor Driver


New Upgraded Rugged Motor Driver.  Upgrades include more robust stacking headers and and 2-pin screw terminals.  The manufacturing process has been improved with the use of higher quality parts and processes.  The new Upgraded Rugged Motor Driver is more durable and will operate more reliably than the already Rugged original!

The Rugged Motor Driver shield is a motor driver for two brush DC motors or one bipolar stepper motor. Rated for 30V and 2.8A peak current operation, the Rugged Motor Driver is the solution for powerful motion. The shield is directly compatible with the Ruggeduino, Ruggeduino-SE, and Ruggeduino-ET, Arduino Uno, Duemilanove, and Mega, or can be used as a standalone motor driver with any microcontroller board. What makes it rugged? Protection against reverse voltage, shorted motors, electrostatic discharge, overcurrent, and overtemperature. Fully assembled and ready to work right out of the box, the Rugged Motor Driver delivers power and ruggedness at an affordable price.
