DO IT YOURSELF (DIY) - MOTOR DRIVER KIT


ULN2xxx DC motor driver kit belongs to the family of so called "do it yourself" (DIY) solutions. The solution is flexible and offers the ability to control various types of DC motors. It is intended for everyone, beginners to professionals, hobbyists, enthusiasts and belongs to everyone. Do not hesitate, start your robot or motor control project with ULN2xxx kit, you can expect large numbers of different possibilities with our motor driver kits. Please read the contents of the kit for more details.

Description / What you can build


This is an example of what you can build with ULN2xxx DIY development system (pictures below). As you can see, the implemented motor driver supports multiple types of DC motors. It supports a variety of algorithms for motor control: stepping, microstepping, PWM etc. With additional LED matrix, software development is simpler. For additional information, read our guidance, the possibilities are great.
