MD10C is a newer version of the MD10B(2008) which is designed to drive high current brushed DC motor up to 13Amps continuously. It offers several enhancements over the MD10B such as support for both locked-antiphase and sign-magnitude PWM signal as well as using full solid state components that result in faster response time and eliminate the wear and tear of the mechanical relay. And with Cytron's motor driver special feature: the on-board manual/test buttons, MD10C is super easy to get started.
Nonetheless, it is compatible with Arduino, even Arduino or Raspberry Pi that generate 3.3V logic PWM.
DC brushed motor is the most commonly used and widely available motor in the market. Getting the motor to rotate is fairly easy, just connect the two terminals to power source and it will start spinning, that's the beauty of DC brushed motor. Yet, if you want to control the speed, direction, activation and automate all these functions, check out this tutorial: 5 easiest ways to control a DC motor. And a motor driver is one of the ways. MD10C is one of Cytron's motor driver series which offers easy to use features.
As easy as pressing button, everyone can do it!
Which motor is good to be driven by MD10C?
DC Brushed motor (Two terminals)
Operating voltage from 5V to 30V
Rated Current <= 13A
Peak Current <= 30A
Bi-directional control for one Brushed DC motor (Single Channel).
Support motor voltage ranges from 5V to 30VDC.
No Reverse Polarity Protection at Vmotor, please double check the polarity before power up.
Maximum current up to 13A continuous and 30A peak (10 seconds).
3.3V and 5V logic level input, compatible with Arduino and Raspberry Pi.
Solid state components provide faster response time and eliminate the wear and tear of mechanical relay.
Fully NMOS H-Bridge for better efficiency and no heat sink is required.
Speed control PWM frequency up to 20KHz (output frequency is same as input frequency).
Support both Locked-Antiphase and Sign-Magnitude PWM operation. **Note that it is not "RC PWM"
The new MD10C can be powered from a single power source and NO additonal Vin is required.
