The following components are available for use in the Design & Construction room.
Motor Controller for Geared Motors
We have geared motors with wheels for use with Arduino. However, to connect and program you will need to use a motor controller.
BE CAREFUL THAT YOU WIRE UP THE CONTROLLER PROPERLY. Please check with Mr. Hogg before powering. ALSO, BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE CONTROLLER WHEN POWERED AS IT CAN GET HOT!
