The L298N is a dual full-bridge high current motor driver. This stand-alone board is designed to safely drive solenoids, relays, stepper motors, DC motors, and other inductive loads using TTL logic levels.
The board can be used to drive either a single stepper motor, 2 bi-directional DC Motors, or 2 relays. Each channel is capable of 3A peak current, 2A continuous current, and if that is not enough the 2 channels can be paralleled to give you a single channel with a peak current of 6A, 4A continuous!
Please Note: When using this board with input voltages higher than 12V DC, remove the jumper to disable the onboard 5V Regulator and apply a 5V source to the screw terminal labeled “5V”. With input voltages 24V and higher we also recommend removing the 35V rated capacitor just above it.
