Very good product – L298N Stepper Motor Driver Controller Board for Arduino Reviews

posted by smarcelo on 08/02/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Works as expected. Extras: - Has a internal voltage regulator (7805) to provide 5v to circuit. You can enable or disable this voltage regulator with a jumper (5V_EN). - Very well done. - 1 led to indicate on/off state; - 4 leds to indicate motor direction (2 for each motor) - 2 jumpers (CSA, CSB) to current sensing for each motor; - 4 jumpers to fix direction of motor. (UR1~UR4)
Cons:
- No manual. - No schematic diagram.
Other:
- You need remove the 4 jumpers (UR1~UR4) to use the IN1~IN4 inputs. - Using jumper 5V_EN, you can use the same supply power for logic and motor. And you can use this 5v to supply external circuit. - I tested with a DC motor.
Bottomline:
Very good product for DIY projects.
