Presentation of the Motor Driver Shield Monster Moto

The L298 H-bridge is no longer available in the Motor Driver Shield Monster Moto since it has been replaced for a pair of VNH2SP30 full-bridge motor drivers. The Motor Driver Shield Monster Moto has been enhanced to drive a pair of high-current motors while the VIN and motor have been adjusted for connecting larger wires more easily.

NOTE: If you use this shield for high-demand applications it is recommended to use a heat-sink or a fan and to solder the wires directly to the board rather than connecting them with a screw terminal.

The Motor Driver Shield Monster Moto does not come with a basic Soldering Kit, don't get stuck and remember to have a basic Soldering Kit to quickly get started.
