It's impossible to fit this L298 on a normal breadboard...
then it would be better to amplify the current voltage drop to utilize more of the full 0-5vdc range.
If I have a 24 Volt, 250 Watts, with 15Amp DC motor and I only have L298's as my DC motor driver, Can possible hook 8 L298's in parallel to withstand the high current rating of my motor? How to do it?
I finally found a single easy to use chip I could use to control my Dc motor. I was hoping you guys could help with it. (I am a total Newbie when it comes to electronics, Software guy by trade). I am using a TLE6209 to control a dc motor. What I would LOVE to do is know when my motor stalls out. I know that my motor will draw 2 about amps during normal operation, and it will draw 6.7 amps stalled. That's what I want to detect - the stall state. Do I need more to detect this? Can I use this chip directly? Any input would help.
How can I possibly control its speed and direction using my arduino microcontroller? I've never used a 1-2mS pulse from standard R/C hobby remote controls? Do I have to buy a separate circuit?
The 1-2mS input should be connected to the terminals marked "GND" and "SIG".
@zoomkat: So I will connect the GND of my motor controller ( K243) to the GND pin of my arduino and the SIG to the desired pin I will be using for the motor control? Is that right? I will just connect it directly?
