The motor can be driven in half step, normal and wawe drive modes and onchip PWM chopper circuits permit switch-mode control of the current in the windings. Since the phase are generated internally the burden on the microprocessor, and the programmer, is greatly reduced. Mounted in DIP20 and SO20 packages, the L can be used with monolithic bridge drives such as the LE, or with discrete transistors and darlingtons. If an external clock source is used it is injected at this terminal.

It can drive : 4 bi-directional DC motors with 8-bit speed selection 2 stepper motors unipolar or bipolar with single coil, double coil, interleaved or micro-stepping. As the shield comes with two LD motor driver chipsets, that means it can individually drive up to four DC motors making it ideal for building four-wheel robot platforms. The shield offers total 4 H-Bridges and each H-bridge can deliver up to 0. The shield also comes with a 74HC shift register that extends 4 digital pins of the Arduino to the 8 direction control pins of two LD chips.

Power Supply There exists three scenarios when it comes to supplying power for the motors through shield. Place the power jumper on the motor shield. You can employ this method only when motor supply voltage is less than 12V. Do not place the jumper on the shield. Two separate DC power supplies for the Arduino and motors:If you would like to have 2 separate DC power supplies for the Arduino and motors.

Make sure the jumper is removed from the motor shield. It may damage the motor shield and also your Arduino! As a bonus, the shield offers below features: The shield comes with a pulldown resistor array to keep motors switched off during power-up. The on-board LED indicates the motor power supply is Okay. If it is not lit, the motors will not run. It just brought up top for convenience. Output Terminals The output channels of both the LD chips are broken out to the edge of the shield with two 5-pin screw terminals viz.

You can connect four DC motors having voltages between 4. Each channel on the module can deliver up to mA to the DC motor. You can also connect two stepper motors to output terminals. One stepper motor to motor port M1-M2 and other to M3-M4.

The GND terminal is also provided if you happen to have a unipolar stepper motor. You can connect the center taps of both stepper motors to this terminal. The shield brings out the 16bit PWM output lines to two 3-pin headers to which you can connect two servo motors. Analog pins are broken out in the bottom right corner where pin 2 has a small breakout. If you want to use these pins, you can connect some headers to it.

There should be a couple entries. Click on that entry, and then select Install. Start by plugging the shield on the top of the Arduino.

Next, connect power supply to the motors. Although you can connect DC motors having voltages between 4. Now, connect the motor to either M1, M2, M3 or M4 motor terminals. In our experiment we are connecting it to M4.

Here you need to declare the motor port number to which motor is connected. For port M1 write 1, for M2 write 2 and so on. If you want to connect multiple motors to the shield, create separate object for each motor. For example, following code snippet creates two AFmotor objects. The speed ranges from 0 to with 0 being off and as full throttle. You can set the speed whenever you want in program.

This removes power from the motor and is equivalent to setSpeed 0. The motor shield does not implement dynamic breaking, so the motor may take some time to spin down.

Remember to remove the PWR jumper. Now, connect the motor to either M1-M2 port 1 or M3-M4 port 2 stepper motor terminals. In our experiment we are connecting it to M3-M4. Here you need to pass steps-per-revolution of motor and port number to which motor is connected, as parameters.

In setup and loop section of the code we simply call below two functions to control the speed and spinning direction of a motor. This can result in smoother operation, but because of the extra half-step, the speed is reduced by half too. This results in finer resolution and smoother rotation, but with a loss in torque.
