Maker Drive: Simplifying H-Bridge Motor Driver for Beginner (maker drive h-bridge)
Description:

For full instructions see our blog

Brushed motor is the most widely used motor because it is easy to use. Just supply the two terminals with DC power, the motor will start rotating! If you want to control its speed and direction using a controller, usually you will use an L298N Motor Driver. But if you want an easy and beginner-friendly motor driver, you are on the right page! Maker Drive is designed for simplicity and with the beginner in mind!

Motor Driver for Beginner- Maker Drive

Maker Drive is not an Arduino Shield, but it is compatible with different models of Arduino main board such as:

Not to forget that it accepts 1.8V, 3.3V & 5V logic(for control) and is compatible with controllers such as Raspberry Pi, micro:bit, Raspberry Pi Pico, ESP etc.

Since you have Maker Drive, you will need suitable DC brushed motors besides the controller, right? So which motor is suitable for Maker Drive? Well, as long as the motor is...

  • DC Brush motor (Two Terminals)
  • Operating voltage from 2.5V to 9.5VDC
  • Rated Current ≤ 1.0A
  • Peak Current ≤ 1.5A

Example of suitable DC brush motor for Maker Drive (Not limit to):

These are the suggested power sources for Maker Drive:



Specifications:

  • Dual-channel, Bi-directional control motor driver
  • Support motor voltage from 2.5V to 9.5VDC
  • Maximum current up to 1.0A continuous and 1.5A peak (less than 5 seconds)
  • 5V Output (200mA) to power the controller.
  • Inputs compatible with 1.8V, 3.3V and 5V logic (Arduino, Raspberry Pi, etc).
  • Solid-state components provide faster response time and eliminate the wear and tear of mechanical relay
  • Regenerative Braking
  • Speed control PWM frequency up to 20KHz (Actual output frequency is the same as input frequency)

Aluminum 2WD TT Robot/Motor Chassis - Purple (aluminum robot chassis purple)

I like the purple color:) It matches Maker UNO.

Description:

This Aluminum Chassis in Blinka purple makes for an excellent robot body. It's a single piece of bent 2mm thick aluminum, with a variety of holes, slots and cutouts for mounting boards, sensors, and servos. The sides are notched to fit two DC Gear 'TT' motors perfectly - There are four M3 and nuts are included for mounting the motors. In the front you can screw on a ball caster. You can build a very sturdy (and quite handsome!) little robot rover with this metal frame.

Specifications:

  • It's made of aluminum so it's light and strong
  • The anodizing is quite attractive as a mobile robot, if you use Maker UNO or Maker Pi RP2040, it looks awesome
  • Can be used to build a 2-wheel mobile robot
  • Tons of mounting holes & slots!
  • You can drill and cut aluminum so it's easy to modify
  • There are ready mounting holes for Arduino UNO , and Raspberry Pi (though, for Raspberry Pi, there is some slight error).

Note: This is a kit with loose parts, you need to assemble it yourself, DIY :)

Then you will also need a microcontroller and motor driver that can drive the 5V DC motors. We recommend one of the following


What's in the box?:
  • Of course, 1 x purple color chassis
  • 2 x DC Gearbox "TT" Motors (Yellow color)
  • 2 x "TT" Wheels (White Rim with Black Tyres, 66mm diameter, 15mm thickness)
  • 1 x Metal ball caster (metal ball, plastic holder)
  • 4 x M3, 25mm bolt nut (Mount "TT" to chasis)
  • 2 x M3, 6mm bolt nut (Mount caster to chasis, nut is not needed though)
  • 2 x 15mm self taping screw (secure wheel to "TT" motor shaft)

Tracking Robot Car Electronic DIY Kit With Reduction Motor (DIY track robot kit)
Description:

This kit introduces quite a few electronic principles, its fun and not difficult to build. This is a self-build DIY smart tracking robot car kit. It is an introductory electronic kit designed to help kids, electronic enthusiasts, and novices learn about basic electronic knowledge like soldering and simple circuits(photoelectric sensor circuit, voltage comparator, motor driving,ir sensors etc.) The smart kit is designed based on the principle of infrared sensor and light reflectivity difference when the light emitting on the white and black items




The assembly steps:


Step 1: Welding circuit

Soldering part is simpler, welding sequence according to the principle of component level from low to high, the first welding eight resistance, is important to use multimeter to confirm resistance is correct, D4, D5 R13 R14 can temporarily not welding, integrated circuit chips can temporarily not inserted

Step 2: Mechanical assembly

The red line is connected to the 3V positive power supply, the yellow line grounding, excess wire an be used for motor wire.

Step 3: The installation of a photoelectric circuit

Photosensitive resistance and light-emitting diodes (note polarity) is reverse-mounted on the PCB, and the ground distance is about 5 mm, both photosensitive resistance and light-emitting diodes are 5 mm distance. Finally, you can power test.

Step 4: Vehicle debugging

The right direction is along the universal wheel direction, if you press and hold the left photoresistor, the wheels on the right side of the car should be rotated. Press and hold the right photoresistor, the wheels on the left side of the car should be rotated, if the car driving back, can also exchange the wiring of two motors, if the one side normal and the other side back up, as long as you can swap wiring of back side.

Note: We don't supply any manuals please note this before you buy it.

Geekcreit® 3D Printer A4988 Reprap Stepper Motor Driver Module (red stepper driver)
Description:

A4988 is a complete microstepping motor driver with built-in translator for easy operation. This product is available in full, half, 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16 step modes operate bipolar stepper motors, output drive capacity of up to 35 V and ± 2 A. A4988 includes a fixed off-time current regulator, the regulator in slow or mixed decay modes. A4988 converter is the key to the easy implementation. As long as the "step" input inputting one pulse drives the motor one microstep. There are no phase sequence tables, high frequency control lines, or complex interfaces to program.

In the micro-step operation, A4988 chopping control inside automatically selects the current decay mode (Slow or Mixed). In mixed decay mode, the device is initially set to a fixed downtime in some fast decay, then the rest of the slow decay downtime. Mixed decay current control scheme results in reduced audible motor noise, increased step accuracy, and reduced power consumption. Internal synchronous rectification control circuitry is provided to improve the pulse-width modulation (PWM) operation power consumption. Internal circuit protection includes: thermal shutdown with hysteresis, undervoltage lockout (UVLO), and crossover-current protection. Special power sequencing.

A4988 surface mount QFN package (ES), a size of 5 mm × 5 mm, nominal overall package height of 0.90 mm, with an exposed pad for enhanced thermal dissipation. This package is Pb (suffix-T), with 100% matte tin leadframe plating.

Features:

Simple step and direction control interface
Short-to-ground and shorted-load protection
Five different step resolutions: full-step, half-step, quarter-step, eighth-step, and sixteenth-step
Intelligent chopping control that automatically selects the correct current decay mode (fast decay or slow decay)
Over-temperature thermal shutdown, under-voltage lockout, and crossover-current protection
Adjustable current control lets you set the maximum current output with a potentiometer, which lets you use voltages above       your stepper motor’s rated voltage to achieve higher step rates

Package includeds:

1 x Step motor driver module
