L298N can it power 6 * 400 motors

Hello,

I have 6 12V 400mAh motors and i am looking for a driver to power them, will L298N MOTOR DRIVER be able to this? If not may you recommend me something that can?

Thank you :slight_smile:

For individual bidirectional control, you will need six drivers for six motors.

You need to know the stall current for the motors, measured in mA or A, not mAh. Each driver can handle about 2 A stall current but only 1 A running current.

Yes sorry i didn't read carefully, this is the chasis with motors, can i run 3 drivers? Or can i run 3 motors from each motor pin?

You MUST know the stall current (typically 5X - 10X the running current), but just looking at those motors, my guess is that you will need one driver per motor for bidirectional control.

The L298N is ancient, very inefficient technology. Much better motor drivers, capable of handling three motors per side, can be found at Pololu.
