L293D - DC motor controller
We offer high quality DC motor controllers. These are two-channel ICs, designed for applications with voltages up to 36 V and a maximum current of 0.6 A per channel (the current may reach a maximum of 1.2 A per channel). The chip is enclosed in a standard DIP enclosure. A cradle (can be purchased separately) may be particularly useful for learners, thanks to whichThe cradle can easily be connected and disconnected without the need to solder it.
The element is made by an excellent company with global coverage - SGS Thomson Microelectronics (French-Italian origin). You will receive 5 of these devices in one package. This type of controller among electronics is called "H-bridge" and is most often used to control mobile robots. It is a system commonly known to people in the robotics and electronics industry because it has been on the market for many years and works well in many projects. Thanks to this, it is easy to find a lot of didactic materials and scientific help with its use. It is perfect for controlling a simple mobile robot (two channels for separate speed control of two wheels) or another device based on electric motors. It is worth noting that the device has built-in safety diodes , thanks to which even if the individual pins are incorrectly connected, no dangerous short circuit will occur. They allow electric current to flow only in the designated direction.
