Motors are certainly fantastic little devices, which are excellent at converting electrical signals into rotational mechanical motion. And while this may not sound like much of a task to talk about in writing, when put into practice, this seemingly simple task can achieve immeasurably great results. In fact, you may not even realize just how many Motors you interact with on a daily basis, as they can be found in a wide array of different household appliances and common products, including vacuum cleaners, electric windows in cars, and even smart phones.

This is why we’re excited with this cool Dual-Channel DC Motor 12A Driver Module from DFRobot, as it makes controlling motors easy, offering up to 12A continuous output at up to 24V for a total of 290W of raw rotational power. This is ideal for both lightweight and relatively heavyweight tasks, and the design is made to accommodate dual 12V to 24V motors simultaneously, with Dual H-Bridge bidirectional outputs and a super-simple control method using Arduino Boards and simple 5-Pin interfaces for each motor.

And finally, just to sweeten this already awesome deal, this dual Motor Driver Module features onboard over-voltage, under-voltage, as well as thermal protection, so as to protect both your DC Motors as well as the driving module from unnecessary damage in case any power fluctuations or other problems arise unexpectedly.

Typical Applications for Dual-Channel DC Motor 12A Driver Module:

The reason why we love this Dual-Channel DC Motor 12A Driver Module so much is because of its impressive capabilities. And while many Motor Driver Modules catered towards hobbyists would typically offer lower current driving, or perhaps the same driving current but only for a single motor, this module is more than capable of powering two motors simultaneously, while offering substantial power for them to operate at excellent efficiency.
