 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hello,

I have 4 dc motor http://www.pololu.com/product/1447 the spec of this motor is 12V with Free-run current @ 12V:   300 mA and Stall current @ 12V:   5000 mA.

I have this motor controller from adafruit http://www.adafruit.com/products/1438 i read somewhere it said  with 1.2A per channel and 3A peak current capability.

Do you think I can use this motor controller with my 4 dc motors.

Thanks

I am not an electric major or anything when it get to current voltage i kinda get scared not to burn things.

The stall current is well beyond the TB6612 driver chip's capability but it seems to have thermal shutdown protection so it should be able to handle an occasional overload.
