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
