Darlington driver switching different voltages??
June 6, 2009
hi all i've just stumbled upon the joys of robotics in the last week
so i'm a little green, I've read some darlington threads already but i didn't find an answer.
so does anyone know if the darlington ic can switch a lower voltage than the
V+ input voltage ?
ie; if i use 12v into the ic pin 9 and i use picaxe to switch 12v motors
can i connect a 6v relay between the other out pins and a 6v supply
seperate to the ic voltage?
I'm refering to the picaxe manual 3 diagram.
I have 12v motors an 6v relays... what a pita.
