The Motor-Skin board help you to take the controle of two DC motors (backward and forward). With this, you can easily create a small robotic plateform with few additional material like our 2 wheels kit.


The motor skin is the result of our first former project named "PyBoard à Roulette" (blog de MCHobby). Motor-Skin is suited to ease the wiring and driving of 2 wheels DC motors robot.


Based on a L293D, you will be able to drive two motors in the two directions. With a L293D, you have 4 H-Bridge - each one being able to draw 600mA (1.2Amp peak current). The L293D does have an overheating protection.

The HBride can work with voltage between 4 to 25V. However this voltage is limited to 10V max for the Motor-Skin because it also power to the PyBoard and the S7V7F5 regulator.

Available in two flavors
