Hey all,

Iam building a robot and need to controll two DC geared motors. They both draw 1 amp.

I was wondering if you guys can give me your personal recomendations for motor controllers that can drave 2 1 amp DC motors.

Thanks

Hello,

The Pololu Micro Dual Serial Motor Controller could be what you're looking for. Supports 2 motors at up to 1 Amp each. A link is provided below:

If that doesn't work, you could try the Motor Mind C:

Unfortunately, the Pololu wont work (it can only handel up to 9 volts, I need 12).

The motor mind C is a little pricey, but I'll take a closer look.

Okay,

You didn't specify voltage in your original message, so my answers were based on the current draw alone. You could check around and find something else, try Google. Otherwise I guess the Motor Mind C is all we have that you could use. Or, you could build one! =)
