The Motoron M2H18v18 Dual High-Power Motor Controller makes it easy to control DC motors from a Raspberry Pi (Model B+ or newer) through an I²C interface. The M2H18v18 supports motor supply voltages from 6.5 V to 30 V and can deliver continuous output currents up to 18 A per motor. This version ships with aluminum standoffs, header pins, and terminal block options included but not soldered in.

Other PCB markings: 0J13656


PCB assembly only, without optional included headers, terminal blocks, or standoffs.
Absolute maximum; higher voltages can permanently destroy the motor drivers. Recommended maximum is approximately 24 V, which leaves a safety margin for ripple voltage on the supply line. Not recommended for use with 24V batteries.
Typical results at room temperature with both channels running at 90% duty cycle.
