Topic: Best Motor Controller- 12v DC (Read 2008 times) previous topic - next topic

Skrantzy

I am using several 12v DC motors to control my robot driving around and need a motor driver/controller for them. Motors are 12v and around 2 amp stall current. I have seen the L298n but from what I have read they are very efficient. I haven't had much luck looking for any other alternatives unless they are rated for 10 plus amps. Thanks in advance.

Overrated is way better than underrated.

What is your criteria for best? I'm suspecting that you think cheapest == best, but that is hardly ever the case.

How about that DRV8871? Was it just the price you didn't like? I ordered one for a project but it hasn't shown up yet.

try to use adafruit v2 motor dc shield, you can control 4 DC motor with 12 V 2 A external power supply for each motor.
