Product description: Cytron MDD20A - DC 30 V / 20 A dual channel motor controller
Dual channel DC motor controller. Supply voltage ranges from 6 V to 30 V, maximum current per channel is 20 A for continuous operation and60 A of instantaneous current. The controller can operate with logic voltages of 1.8 V; 3.3 V; 5 V and 12 V making it compatible with most modules such asArduino, Raspberry Pi,PLC driversetc. The module has over temperature protection,undervoltage switchandover current protectionwith active limit. The controller is equipped with a button for fast motor testing. On the board there are LEDs signaling work of individual motors.
The module does not have reverse polarity protection. In case of incorrect power supply connection, the board will be damaged.
Pinouts of MDD20A dual channel motor controller
The controller is equipped with 6 screw terminals from which it receives information from the microcontroller about the direction and speed of rotation of the motors, and 6 screw terminals to which the motors and power supply are connected. TheCytron MDD20Acan be controlled viaPWMinputs. The logic voltage is1.8V, 3.3V, 5Vor12V, compatible with most controllers such asArduino,Raspberry Pi, PLC.
