I have connected new DRF0513 motor driver module and it is behaving “not well”
The signal from my Turnigy TGY-i6 seems to be getting through as the motors react correctly to the sticks.
However the motors are pulsing, especially at low speed, and don’t reach anywhere near their full speed.
So I reviewed the DFRobot documentation where some confusion occurred.
At the introduction, second paragraph states "The motor driver supports 7 ~ 12V wide range power input, the maximum input voltage is 40V, and the continuous current of each channel is 3A, the allowable peak current is 6A.
So my questions are:-
- is the power input range 7-12V OR something up to 40V ?
- what supply voltage would I need to drive two x 12V DC motors?
I intend to use the module to power and control twin 12V DC motors in a model boat.
Can someone please put me on the right track.
Thanks in advance, Stephen
