The Dual Monster Moto Shield
30DC Motor Driver
30A) is essentially a ramped up version of our Ardumoto motor driver shield. For this Monster Moto Shield, It is replaced the L
298 H-bridge with a pair of
30full-bridge motor drivers.
It is also beefed up the support circuitry so this board is capable of driving a pair of high-current motors! The VIN and motor out are pitched for our 5mm screw terminals (not included), making it easy to connect larger gauge wires.
298 H-bridge is no longer available in the Motor Driver Shield Monster Moto since it has been replaced for a pair of VNH
30full-bridge motor drivers. The Motor Driver Shield Monster Moto has been enhanced to drive a pair of high-current motors while the VIN and motor have been adjusted for connecting larger wires more easily.
30is a full bridge motor driver intended for a wide range of automotive applications. The device incorporates a dual monolithic high side driver and two low side switches.
The high side driver switch is designed using the STMicroelectronics well known and proven proprietary VIPower M0 technology which permits efficient integration on the same die of a true Power MOSFET with an intelligent signal/protection circuitry. The VIN and motor out are pitched for 5mm screw terminals, making it easy to connect larger gauge wires. INA and INB control the direction of each motor, and the PWM pins turn the motors on or off.
30, the current sense (CS) pins will output approximately 0.13 volts per amp of output current.
- When using this board in extreme high-demand applications it may be necessary to improve thermal performance with a heat-sink or fan and to solder the wires directly to the board instead of using a screw terminal (in addition to the myriad other complications present in a high-current system) However, when using the board at currents up to 6A the chips will barely become noticeably warm.
- Current sensing available to Arduino analog pin MOSFET on-resistance:
- Thermal Shutdown
- Undervoltage and Overvoltage shutdown.
