L293D Motor Driver Module for DC, Stepper or Servo Motors for Arduino, AVR, PIC

 350

This L293D Motor Driver/Servo Shield for Arduino is probably one of the most versatile on the market
and features 2 servo and 4 motor connectors for DC or stepper motors. That makes it a great shield for
any robotic project. This Arduino compatible motor Driver shield is a full-featured product that it can be
used to drive 4 DC motor or two 4-wire steppers and two 5v servos. It drives the DC motor and stepper
with the L293D, and it drives the servo with Arduino pin9 and pin10.

This L293D Motor Driver/Servo Shield for Arduino is probably one of the most versatile on the market
and features 2 servo and 4 motor connectors for DC or stepper motors. That makes it a great shield for
any robotic project. This Arduino compatible motor Driver shield is a full-featured product that it can be
used to drive 4 DC motor or two 4-wire steppers and two 5v servos. It drives the DC motor and stepper
with the L293D, and it drives the servo with Arduino pin9 and pin10.

L293D is a monolithic integrated, high voltage, high current, 4-channel driver. Basically, this means using
this chip you can use DC motors and power supplies of up to 36 Volts, that some pretty big motors and
the chip can supply a maximum current of 600mA per channel, the L293D chip 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. a motor.

The shield contains two L293D motor drivers and one 74HC595 shift register. The shift register
expands 3 pins of the Arduino to 8 pins to control the direction of the motor drivers. The
output enables the L293D is directly connected to the PWM outputs of the Arduino.

1. Arduino Stepper/Servo software library with micro-stepping support.
To install, click on Download in the top right corner, select zip and uncompress the folder.
Rename the folder to AF-motor (check that the renamed folder contains the .cpp and .h files) and
install it into the Arduino sketches/libraries folder. For information on how to use and install libraries,
see our tutorial! This version now works with the Mega. Public domain!
2. AccelStepper library with AFMotor support. This library allows for advanced stepper control including
acceleration and deceleration, and concurrent stepper control!
To install, click on Download in the top right corner, select zip and uncompress the folder.
Rename the folder to AF-motor (check that the renamed folder contains the .cpp and .h files) and
install it into the Arduino sketches/libraries folder.

Features :

1. 2 connections for 5V ‘hobby’ servos connected to the Arduino’s high-resolution dedicated timer
2. 4 H-Bridges: L293D chipset provides 0.6A per bridge (1.2A peak) with thermal shutdown protection,
internal kickback protection diodes. Can run motors on 4.5VDC to 25VDC.
3. Up to 4 bi-directional DC motors with individual 8-bit speed selection (so, about 0.5% resolution)
4. Up to 2 stepper motors (unipolar or bipolar) with single coil, double coil, or interleaved stepping.
5. Pull-down resistors keep motors disabled during power-up
6. Big terminal block connectors to easily hook up wires (18-26AWG) and power
7. Arduino reset button brought up top
8. 2-pin terminal block and jumper to connect external power, for separate logic/motor supplies
9. Tested compatible with Arduino Mega 1280 & 2560, Diecimila, Duemilanove, and UNO
10. Download the easy-to-use Arduino software library, check out the examples and you’re ready to go!
