Want to connect several motors and sensors to your mechatronic project? The Arduino MKR Motor Carrier is the perfect companion for Arduino MKR boards as it will allow you to rapidly prototype and build your projects.

The MKR Motor Carrier is an MKR add-on board designed to control servo, DC, and stepper motors. The Carrier can also be used to connect other actuators and sensors via a series of 3-pin male headers.

To use the Carrier, you will need to plug an MKR board (the MKR1000, MKR Zero, or other) on the headers at the center of the board. Make sure the MKR board is connected in the proper direction. You can do this by making sure the info printed on the side of the headers are matching for both the MKR board and the Motor Carrier.

Features

  • Code library available
  • Compatible with all the boards in the MKR family
  • Four servo motor outputs
  • Four DC motor outputs (two high performance + two standard performance)
  • Sensing of current feedback for the high-performance motors
  • Two inputs for encoder sensors
  • Four inputs for analogue sensors (3-pin compatible)
  • Possibility to read the status of the batteries
  • ON-OFF switch with Power ON LED
  • LiPo battery connector (2S or 3S compatible) and power terminal block for an alternative power source
  • LEDs to visually indicate the direction of the rotation of the DC motors
  • On-board processor for automated control of some of the outputs
  • I2C connector as a 4-pin male header
