Refer to the details below. Note that “forward” and “backwards” refer to the direction of the motors themselves. As shown in the above illustrations I have redrawn the “multi-watt” package into a more understandable form.
This included power connectors, diodes, LED indicators, and even a 5-volt regulator. In this series we will explore motkr to use the LN in a number of actual tested and functioning circuits. Welcome visitor you can login or create an account.
Arduino Motor Shield (L298N) (SKU:DRI0009)
An onboard 5V regulator is provided that can be used to power other parts of your robot’s circuitry such as an Arduino microcontroller. All inputs are TTL compatible. The longer the PWM duty cycle is, the faster the motor will turn. This completes our introduction to the LN dual full bridge driver.
One of the annoying features of the unit is the lack of internal parasitic flywheel diodes to deal with voltage spikes. Follow the steps below to configure the motor controller board to work as a typical robot motor driver for use with two DC motors.
LN Motor Controller Theory Projects
The same method is used to control Motor B: It features a powerful LN motor driver module with a heavy duty heat sink.
Basic circuit configuration LN. This part seems to be the favorite of hobby robot builders. Motor Driver Truth Tables Here are some handy tables to show the various modes of operation. Perhaps an updated version will include these internally. Do not enable the onboard 5V regulator if you plan to supply more than 16V to your moyor. The four amplifiers are usually used in pairs forming an H-bridge to switch polarity for to control the direction of a single DC motor or as two pairs of H-bridges a bi-polar stepper motor.

Connect these pins to digital outputs on your robots microcontroller. Leave the jumper connected when not using current sense. Otherwise you must input 5V mitor power at pin 5 so that the circuit can operate properly.
How to use the LN Dual H-Bridge Motor Driver
To use the current sense feature, remove the jumpers and attach to the header pins. The motors will come to an instant stop. Internally the LN consists of four independent power amps with 5-volt digital inputs and four high current, high voltage power amplifiers capable of driving single DC motors, and both unipolar and bi-polar stepper motors. They can be 1N Schottky diodes. In the proceeding sections we will connect the LN to a micro-controller to operate a bi-polar stepper motor and explore using pulse-width-modulation PWM to control motor speed on a standard DC motor.
Shown in figure 3 the power amps have connected in parallel for double the power at the cost of operating one bi-directional load such as a DC motor. This is in my opinion the smart way to go 2l89 save time, money, and effort. ,289 using PWM, you motro turning power on and off very quickly to adjust the speed of the motor.
