L293d High-current Driver


FETs do not switch instantly, they need some time to "charge up". Drivers are enabled in pairs, with drivers 1 and 2 enabled by 1,2EN and drivers 3 and 4 enabled by 3,4EN. ITP Physical Computing has a terrific tutorial on using an Arduino and an L293 to control a bi-directional motor. Generally, these IC's are used to drive small motors as they only supply 500mA; however cost being a major factor in my work, i need to use these IC's to drive http://vinaprosoft.com/motor-driver/l293d-driver-ic.php

Better you use L298N, It has a better capacity (upto 2A).

  • Happy tinkering !CommentsMuhammadS297 (author)Reply2016-12-05i am using stepper motor of rating 4.7amp and of 2 volts..which driver will be best for it?Sajid_Hasan_Sj (author)Reply2016-04-22In my country i couldn't find "mct2e".is there any think
  • A heat sink will not improve things by much on a plastic DIL.
  • If it burst into a flame i will extinguish it :) –Gossamer Mar 20 '13 at 13:02 add a comment| up vote 1 down vote No It is not good to
  • Small means small.
  • i think last time i checked current draw each motor pulled less than a quarter amp each.

Good luck with you project :) and thanks ! :)pfred2 (author)Reply2014-03-04Optocouplers also stop motor noise from propagating throughout electronics too. and bounced off the wall and landed 10ft away. L293d Stepper Motor Driver You're not using a adjustable current limited variable power supply that allows you to adjust the current and ramp up the voltage (eliminating the INRUSH current).

And possibly catch fire (I am not kidding).

While charging they change from infinite resistance (open switch) to low resistance (closed swich) so the resistance passes "medium" values which dissapate much power.

Just current limiting is fine.Foldback means overload will drastically reduce the torque available, whichmeans the motor may simply stall from friction. [ I will NOT respond to personal messages, I WILL For most practical purposes it's fine, and personally I've generally preferred to use the L293 in parallel instead of the L298 if the current is under an ampere per motor because How To Use L293d Is this weird?

I've heard of people gluing Al to DIL chips, but I don't think that it worked very well. –Leon Heller Mar 20 '13 at 10:07 L293D is capable to I use a variable with adjustable current limit and start with the voltage at min and then ramp it up slowing watching the current.

I have two dc motors that draw within that limitation. If you're just confused about my circuit it would also help to describe you're state of knowledge (just tick the boxes of topics you know something about/ have worked with, like navigate here I measured the current at 0.067A when no load.

You can simply use multiple channels in parallel (one chip per motor instead of half chip per motor).
