Product description: the Pololu DRV8801 single channel driver motors 36V/1A

The module is based on Texas Instruments DRV8801 allow you to control one DC motor. The motor can be powered with any voltage from 8 V to 36 V with a continuous current consumption up to 1 A, short-term (within seconds) to 2.8 A. Before use, we highly recommend you familiarizing yourself with the documentation system DRV8801. For lower supply voltages we have also dual channel modules DRV8833 and DRV8835.

Connection driver engines Pololu


Podłączenie jednokanałowego sterownika silników Pololu

In a typical application, simply connect the two lines of control: selection of rotation direction DIR( in the documentation called PHASE) and the speed control PWM (to ENABLE documentation). Default on-Board PWM signal is matched to the mass, and so the driver is disabled. Unless you need to use to adjust the speed of rotation must be specified at the PWM output state is high (logical unit).


Conclusion-the BREAK (in the documentation is referred to as MODE1) determines how the engine will behave at the zero cycle of the PWM (logical zero). By default, BREAK is chosen to power), in this case, if the PWM output is specified as low engine slows down dramatically (the insights are closed). Otherwise (BREAK in the low state), the engine will move freely (coasting). The options available are shown in the table below.

The motor supply voltage is in the range 8V - 36V
GNDThe potential of mass of the system
VDDVoltage logical parts. The output is used to service the terminal podciągających and contact FAULT, BREAK and SLEEP. System DRV8801 has its own, built-in voltage regulator.
OUT+Outlet + for connection to a motor terminal.
OUT-Output for connection to a motor terminal.
DIR/ PHASEA logical input that determine the direction of rotation of the engine. Default not active.
Logic for adjusting the speed of rotation. To this conclusion you need to connect the PWM signal. Default in the low state.
Entrance-puzzle defines how the engine will behave at the zero cycle of the PWM. Default in the high state at zero cycle of the PWM engine brakes.
SLEEPThe logic switch system to sleep after a feed low position. Default in the high state.
FAULTA logic output indicates the error as low. Default in the high state.
Analog output allows to measure the current, which is consumed by the engine with an accuracy of 0.5 V 1A.
