Monster Moto Shield

£ 11.99


Here we have a Monster motor shield. This is essentially a ramped up version of our Ardumoto motor driver shield.

This unit uses a pair of VNH2SP30 full-bridge motor drivers with upgraded support circuitry so this board is capable of driving a pair of high-current motors.

The VIN and Motor out are pitched for 5mm screw terminals, but you could also solder the wires directly to the board.

Note: 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.
