Drive your low power motor with a H-Bridge driver
This H-Bridge is intended for Hobbyists wishing to control of low power motors (600mA per bridge, 36 volts max).
They are perfect for discovering the operation and connection of an H-Bridge. The L293D are ideal for small radio controlled vehicles.
If you need to control more powerful motors, we recommend the breakout L298 which is a H-Bridge supporting a current up to 2 amps.
This small H-Bridge is already equipped (internally) of freewheel diodes, these diodes are used to protect the H-Bridge of transient effects.
This H-Bridge can be used directly with an Arduino without the need for additional hardware.
- A L293D (double H-Bridge)
600mA per channel, 36V
- A decoupling capability of 0.47µF (see our tutorial)
