Will the motor driver fit this motor?


#1

Simple question: Will the Motor Driver L298 Module be able to control a simple geared DC motor.

The motor runs backward on reverse polarity, and I would really like to avoid messing with relays to change polarity on it…

Furthermore, can the speed be adjusted on a motor like this?

Thanks again!

simple answer: yes

but, how much speed adjustment would you want to do when it’s full speed is .6 turns per minute?

Thanks buddy, will order some stuff right away… :dance:

Not much, but it comes in different speed editions, will see how the experiments go.

The speed though, is having a huge impact on the torque-abilities, so its a balance. Went for the most powerful one in first go.
