DC Dual H-Bridge Motor Controller Driver Board
This L298 based DC motor controller board allows users to attach an external power source to power DC motors that require a little bit more current. Plug in an external power source up to 12VDC with a max current of 2A. The IC onboard contains two h-bridges allowing the control of two independent motors or four motors with two in one direction. Its’ massive heatsink size allows for high current applications and can be controlled from a 5v microcontroller by sending PWM signals.
To get this system operational simply connect four digital pins into IN1, IN2, IN3 and IN4. ENA and ENB does not need to be connected to 5v as long as the jumper remains seated on the 5V-EN pin. The green screw terminals on the other side allows users to connect two motors and power from a 5v source or higher by inserting the power leads into the blue terminal block with VMS and GND pin.
