Is the Adafruit motor shield compatible with Arduino?

Is the Adafruit motor shield compatible with Arduino?

To use the shield on an Arduino, you’ll need to install the Adafruit Motorshield v2 library. This library is not compatible with the older AF_Motor library used for v1 shields. However, if you have code for the older shield, adapting the code to use the new shield isn’t difficult.

What’s the phase resistance of an Adafruit shield?

A simple rule of thumb is to use a motor with a phase resistance of 10 ohms or more. This will be safe to use with supply voltages up to 12v. The NEMA 17 motor we have in the shop has a phase resistance of about 35 ohms, so it is a good match for the shield. Can I use this NEMA-17 motor? NEMA-17 is just a motor frame-size designation.

What’s the best way to drive an Adafruit motor?

Description -. The original Adafruit Motorshield kit is one of our most beloved kits, which is why we decided to make something even better. We have upgraded the shield kit to make the bestest, easiest way to drive DC and Stepper motors. This shield will make quick work of your next robotics project!

What does the Adafruit _ steppermotor class represent?

The Adafruit_StepperMotor class represents a stepper motor attached to the shield. You must declare an Adafruit_StepperMotor for each stepper motor in your system. The constructor takes no arguments. The stepper motor is typically initialized by assigning a stepper object retrieved from the shield as below:

Make sure you have installed the Adafruit_MotorShield library As of Arduino 1.5.6-r2 BETA, there is a bug in the Due Wire library that prevents multiple Motor Shields from working properly! © Adafruit Industries https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-motor-shield-v2-for-arduino Page 10 of 72

Which is I2C address does the Arduino motor shield use?

This board/chip uses I2C 7-bit addresses between 0x60-0x80, selectable with jumpers. As of 3/21/2014 we are shipping motor shields with the terminal blocks, and power jumper pre-soldered on. You’ll still need to do a little soldering to put on the shield-headers (or stacking headers) but it should be even easier and faster to get started!

How does the Adafruit motor stepper servo shield work?

Lots of other little improvements such as a polarity protection FET on the power pins and a bit of prototyping area. And the shield is assembled and tested here at Adafruit so all you have to do is solder on straight or stacking headers and the terminal blocks.
