8 Channel Inductive Load Driver Arduino Shield

8 Channel Inductive Load Driver Arduino Shield


The 8 Channel Driver Arduino UNO Shield is designed to enable users to switch inductive loads for up to 800mA each channel and up to 24V DC with no heat-sink needed. It is ideal for such applications as driving 2x unipolar stepper motors, solenoids, relays, and small DC motors. It uses 2x DRV8803 Chip from Texas instruments which is 4 channel low side driver with over current protection. IC’s Internal shutdown protection function is provided for overcurrent protection, short circuit protection, under-voltage lockout, and over temperature. Faults are indicated by a fault output pin that is normally high and goes low if a fault condition occurs. Reset and enable pins has internal pull-down resistors.
