Arduino Library for Cytron Motor Drivers

This library provides functions for Cytron Motor Drivers.
Please refer to the examples on how to use the library.
Connection to the motor driver is described in the comment section of the examples.

Installation

  1. Open the Arduino IDE, select Sketch -> Include Library -> Manage Libraries....
  2. Search for Cytron Motor Drivers Library.
  3. Click Install to install the library.
  4. Restart the Arduino IDE.
  5. Examples can be opened in Arduino IDE from File -> Examples -> Cytron DC Motors Library.
    Please refer to the example list below for all the compatible motor drivers.

Examples

1. PWM_DIR

This example shows how to drive a motor using PWM and DIR pins.
PWM pin is used to control the speed of the motor while DIR pin is used to control the direction.

This example only show how to drive a single motor for simplicity.
For multi channels motor driver, all channels work the same way.

Compatible Motor Drivers:

*Smart series motor driver needs to be configured as Sign-Magnitude PWM Input mode. Refer to user manual for more details.

2. PWM_DIR_DUAL

This example shows how to drive 2 motors using PWM and DIR pins .
PWM pin is used to control the speed of the motor while DIR pin is used to control the direction.

Compatible Motor Drivers:

*Smart series motor driver needs to be configured as Sign-Magnitude PWM Input mode. Refer to user manual for more details.

2. PWM_PWM_DUAL

This example shows how to drive 2 motors using 4 PWM input pins (2 for each motor).
Input A controls the motor speed in forward direction and Input B controls the motor speed in backward direction.
