Arduino Motor Shield Rev3 – A000079 – L298
The Arduino Motor Shield is based on the L298, which is a dual full-bridge driver designed to drive inductive loads such as relays, solenoids, DC and stepping motors. It lets you drive two DC motors with your Arduino board, controlling the speed and direction of each one independently.
One of the really cool features of this shield is that you can also measure the current absorption of each motor.
- Operating Voltage 5V to 12V
- Motor controller L298P, Drives 2 DC motors or 1 stepper motor
- Max current 2A per channel or 4A max (with external power supply)
- Current sensing 1.65V/A
- Free running stop and brake function
