Pololu High-Power Motor Drivers

The High-Power Motor Driver family started with nine original members that are still available below, but we now have second-generation (G2) versions that we recommend over these original drivers as they are better in a number of different ways.

There are four versions of the G2 high-power motor driver, which all share compatible pinouts. The following table provides a comparison of the G2 drivers:

G2 High-Power Motor Driver 18v25 30 V 18 V 25 A
G2 High-Power Motor Driver 18v17 30 V 18 V 17 A
G2 High-Power Motor Driver 24v21 40 V 28 V 21 A
G2 High-Power Motor Driver 24v13 40 V 28 V 13 A

Pololu G2 High-Power Motor Driver 24v21 and 24v13.

Note: As an alternative to these motor drivers, our Simple Motor Controllers have similar power characteristics and offer high-level interfaces (e.g. USB, RC hobby servo pulses, analog voltages, and TTL serial commands) that make them easier to use for some applications.

Pololu item #: 2994
Price: $39.95
Quantity:

This discrete MOSFET H-bridge motor driver enables bidirectional control of one high-power DC brushed motor. The small 1.3″ × 0.8″ board supports a wide 6.5 V to 30 V voltage range and is efficient enough to deliver a continuous 25 A without a heat sink. Additional features of this second-generation (G2) driver include reverse-voltage protection along with basic current sensing and current limiting functionality.
