L298N Powering Options

Hello dear community,

For this motor I want to use the L298N driver which seems pretty popular since there are plenty of youtube videos.

  • Regarding the power options: Is there a solution to power the dirver via European plug socket if I dont want to use batterys as a power source?
    This might help me a lot. Thanks in advance.

Do you mean an L298 module like this?

You could use a 230VAC to 12VDC plug pack and 1 of these:

Keep in mind, L298 will drop a volt or 2 depending on load so your 12V in may end up as 10 or 11V out.

Hi, Usual solution would be a 12V 2A plug-in power supply...

Thank you very much.
So might this be a valid solution?

Extra question: Can I use the electricity coming from this at the same time to power an Arduino Board Mega?

DC-Hohlstecker 5,5 x 2,5 mm (Außen-/Innen-Ø)

Connector on plug pack is too big! Must be 5,5 x 2,1, and it is 24V, not 12.

Thank you.
