Before purchasing a DC motor shield (DFRduino motor drive, sold on this website), if have one or two question to check if it’ll do what I’m expecting! Sorry if my question is a noob one, but I could not find documentation or existing threads answering this.
I have 2 (brushed) 12 V 1000RPM motors.
I have 1 battery, 7AH, 12V
I will soon have a FEZ domino (right now I have a Arduino but I’m going to change because I have more fun with C#)
This domino will be powered by my 12V battery.
I want to use my domino + the motor shield to control both my 12V motors.
Question : Can the shield output 12V, to give my motor full power?
If yes, do I have to plug the battery to the shield (as the Domino works internally with 5V (but again I’m not sure of this!))
I have seen that on the shield there was 6 pins labeled “Power In”, 3 GND and 3 VIN. Maybe I have to supply 12V there? (But in this case why is there 3 in!?)
Well, as you can see, I’m a little bit lost. Can you help me?
