 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

So I am new to Arduino.

I've play around with a few libraries and more recently the LCD keypad shield. Found here http://www.robotshop.com/dfrobot-lcd-keypad-shield-arduino.html.

I've recently ordered from eBay a 50A H bridge single motor driver designed for the Arduino Intelligent Car. I bought it to drive a motor...

After buying it I was refer to http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=4057972881 for more information..

My problem is, finding some code to interface with this board. Not too sure where to start.

Hi, If you view Taobao in Chrome and translate the Chinese you will see some info, but not much...

Thanks for the reply, I will see what I can find using Chrome.

I will keep posted on what I find out.

This one gave more info: http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-50A-Single-H-bridge-motor-driver-module-PID-Arduino-intelligent-car-/300722330780

New 50A Single H bridge motor driver module PID for Arduino intelligent car

Descriptions:

1. Designed for Arduino intelligent car, the whole bridge DC brush motor drive, for hollow cup motor is very good,PID program source send by email.
2. This drive brake quickly, and  easy to operation. The customers evaluation that its better than the MC33886 etc.
3. The driver use the whole bridge drive chip + extremely low impedance MOSFET. make the MOSFET switching losses to lowest. Improve power utilization rate. MOSFET drive chip with hardware brake function and power feedback function.
4. The current shock resistance MOSFET type, resistance is 0.005 ohm, can quickly make MOSFET open channel, improve the speed of the motor curvature, also can rapid in electrical braking. This can make of car can quickly start also can quickly kill car.
5. Drive can work at 0%-98% of the PWM duty cycle, because the drive is NMOS circuit, NMOS circuit features is not to 100% PWM, when PWM 100% of control circuit, long time carries out the operation can lead to drive damage

Performance parameters:

Rated voltage: 3 V-15 V
R1 short circuit, VCC and B + short circuit. VCC output voltage and drive the input voltage.
R1 open circuit, VCC and B + disconnect.   VCC input voltage 3-12 V.
Rated current: 50 A (or 30A)
Current peak: 110 A (or 70A)
Switching frequency: 1 K to 200 kHz
Dimensions: 5.0 cm (long) * 5.0 cm (wide) * 3.1 cm (high)
   
V +              Power Input +
GND            Power Input -
EN               Driver Enable, high enable, low off
RPWM        Forward PWM input, high active
LPWM        Reverse PWM input, active high
CT              Current signal output,analog signal
VT              Voltage signal output, analog signal

But I can't find any Arduino sketch for this driver.

I looks the same as the dual channel version : http://www.elechouse.com/elechouse/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=100_146&products_id=667
At least that page explains the use of the RPWM and LPWM signals:

Rotate forward: EN = 1, RPWM = PWM, LPWM = 1
Rotate reverse: EN = 1, RPWM = 1, LPWM = PWM
Parking and brake: EN = 1, RPWM = 1, LPWM = 1
Parking but not brake: EN = 0, RPWM = 1, LPWM = 1

that should help, now to find the signal output of the CT and VT.

My Chinese partner is trying to track down the designer / factory.  It's difficult because the sellers protect their factory connection and know I want it  smiley-razz

How much interest is there in these higher-power driver boards and larger stepper motors?


DISCLAIMER: Mentioned stuff that I might someday hopefully maybe have in my own shop...

Interesting affordable h-bridges, but they seem to recomend using a fairly high pwm rate.  I'd be interested in seeing if the internals of a cheap $2 servo could drive these bridges for making monster servos.

Consider the daffodil. And while you're doing that, I'll be over here, looking through your stuff.   smiley-cool

I think they can. But you need the schematic to be sure, and so far, no one has been able to retrieve the schematic.

The below might be a little dated, but I think it shows a typical standard analog servo schematic.

zoomkat, it's nice to see what the inner of my S3003 is, but I ment the schematic of the wingxine NISI IMS-1 "Arduino50A" alfs-tech.taobao.com 50A single H-bridge.

I'm still working on this
I got a PID.rar file from the company I bought it from but wont have a chance to look at it right away. I will see if I can attach it later tonight so you guys can have a look at it.
It's suppose to have some code written in c.

So here is the file I received.

It's not Arduino code.
It looks just like a standard PID. So you can use any PID for Arduino instead of that.

Is there supposed to be some code for your driver in there ?

Ya, this is what the company sent to me for this driver.

I still haven't had a chance to look at any of the files, I might do so this weekend and see if there is anything useful.
