Motor Driver Shield L293D v1 (DC, stepper, servo motors)




This is the L293D Motor Driver Shield v1 that you can use for DC, Stepper and Servo motors up to 10 Volts. L293D is also what’s known as a type of H-Bridge. The H-Bridge is typically an electrical circuit that enables a voltage to be applied across a load in either direction to an output, e.g. motor. It is designed to provide bi-directional drive currents of up to 600-mA.

Features / Specifications

  • 2 interface for 5V Servo connected to the Arduino
  • Can drive 4 DC motors or 2 stepper motors or 2 Servo.
  • Up to 4 bi-directional DC motors with individual 8-bit speed selection.
  • Up to 2 stepper motors (unipolar or bipolar) with single coil, double coil or interleaved stepping.
  • 4 H-Bridges  : per bridge provides 0.6A (1.2A peak current) with thermal protection, can run motors on 4.5V to 10V DC.
  • Pull down resistors keep motors disabled during power-up. Reset button.
  • 2 external terminal power interface, for seperate logic/motor supplies.
  • Size : 6.8cm x 5.5cm x 2cm – 2.68inch x 2.17inch x 0.79inch.
