Raspberry Pi Hat - controllers, motors and servos

Development of electronics and computer science, and marriage of these two fields in many areas of science, technology, allowed the development of many applications of hardware and software practical applications. For these applications should control the motors. Controllers engines in the overlay Hat designed for the Raspberry Pi, monitor and control in real time the parameters of the engine, obtaining an optimal torque. Check the prepared transaction linings Hat and create your dream project!

Electric motor control and serwomechanizmami from the deck Raspberry Pi

Minikomputer Raspberry Pi allows a rather simple implementation of the motor control. Regardless of whether you want to manage one silniczkiem the movement of remote-controlled model car, as well as advanced building automation system, the method of controlling the operation of motors and servos are built on the same principles. In our offer you will find, in particular, overlay-based advanced chip TB6612 is a special driver engines. Trim from the Mini Kit from Adafruit has a system TB6612 will enable You to control four DC motors or two motors krokowymi. Design allows continuous operation of motors with voltage from 4.5 V to 13.5 V and current of 1.2 A. to stop the engine or group of engines, in addition to the Raspberry Pi and the gear shift cover you will need the AC adapter or battery powered engines. If you are building a powerful layout of the aircraft, which along with the basic management capabilities must be armed with special functions are controlled mechanically, to look at our proposed controller servo driver from Adafruit PWM from the Mini Kit allows you to connect up to 16 flow, making it suitable for even the most complex projects.

What you should know nt. equipment for motor control?

Hat plate for motor control to be connected to the Raspberry Pi using the GPIO pins. Thus, the overlay will be provided with food, as well as direct communication with the base Malinka. The driver, having the appropriate set of instructions from the Raspberry Pi generates the PWM signal by changing the fill of this signal, you can proportionally affect engine speed, and by writing a simple Python script you can define what logical would be to start or stop the engine. These functions implements people use for motor control system TB6612, whose internal structure consists of four jumper-type H-based MOSFETs and diodes in the topology string. The system is provided via I2C interface.
