Pololu RP5 motor
May 15, 2011
Hi there, I have recently bought a RP5 chassis from pololu, this chassis is holding 2 brushed DC motors (6V) and I have some questions: first of all; how can I control it? I mean, do i need to control it by PWM or is just 5v or 0v?
second, I built a little pcb with a L293D to protect the controller (Arduino) from reverse current, is this ok?
third, I planned to buy this one: http://www.cooking-hacks.com/index.php/shop/robotics/l298-dual-h-bridge-motor-driver.html or this one: http://www.cooking-hacks.com/index.php/shop/arduino/ardumoto-motor-driver-shield.html, which one would be better?
