l298n motor driver Customers Reviews

  • Works as expected, and at a very affordable price

    posted by netiness

    It was cheap, less than the price for a L298 chip alone in my country.I had no problem hooking it up to a stepper motor, and the onboard 5V supply regulator comes in handy for supplying other parts of my project.Each output as a green led associated with it so you can verify the stepping sequence,It also have a switch that can be used to shut off the controller board.
    I'm using this board connected to a parallell port. Hook a common ground to the GND part of the power terminal, then signal the IN pins in correct order to step the motor.
    Useful, cheap, and of acceptable build quality. I will be buying more of these because it was so easy to use.
  • For a smart car this is more than good enought to drive your DC motors!

    -cheap-works-lots of information on the Internett-has a usfull heat sink-5 V output
    I used this motor drive controller for my smart car project. It is a four wheel driven car, but the controller controls to motors in parallel. For my project I originally wanted to use a 4x1.2 V battery pack, but the voltage drop and power loss in the controller was too large to turn the car. I guess it is a combination between power loss in the controller and the weight of the car that is the main reason for this problem. Now I use a 12 v pb battery and it works like a charm. The heat sink gets a bit hot, but not alarmingly hot. So for my set up this was ideal.When I first received this product the motor B output did not work. After some debugging I found out that the problem was a bad contact between some of the jumper pins. My board also had a few places of bad soldering, but nothing big. There is a lot of documentation on the internet, so just a quick search will help you on the way to get this controller work with your arduino.
    There is also two ports on the board witch is not very intuitive, if this is your first motor controller. The EN1 and EN2 port. This is for enabling the motor output. If low the motors will not be activated, but if you leave them floating or high the motors will be activated.
  • superb interface for microcontrolers

    posted by JanDeStrooper

    This interface has great capabilities. You're able to draw the power for your microcontroler directly from this interface board. With the L298N Dual-H bridge interface circuit board, you're able to control DC motors and reverse them with just one input signal. One L298 does contain the components to control 2 DC motors at an acceptable power rate of 1,5Amp without high power dissipation.Great asset to all kind of controling projects.I used it myself to control 2 electrical curtains with a 24VDC drive.
    As the mounting holes do fit the ATMega 32 prototype board, an easy construction can be made by using spacers of about 2,5cm.
    Great asset for those who want to use microcontroler control on DC power devices.As it contains 2 transistor bridges in one housing, the circuits can be reduced drastically in size.
