Re: Voltage and Current

Sorry for the slow reply.

If you look at the specifications section at the bottom of this page: http://www.freetronics.com.au/pages/ste ... GXr6sN95hE it lists the StepDuino voltage specifications as:

7-28V DC recommended
5-40V DC maximum

I hope this helps!

Re: When will these be available again?

Hi Treborjm87,

I don't know if we are planning on continuing to produce the Ethernet Shield. Our EtherTen is equivalent to an Eleven + and Ethernet Shield so this effectively replaced the need for an Ethernet Shield.

Hi Mickc,

The MOSFETs shouldn't get TOO hot but obviously it will depend on how much current / voltage is going through it. I would suggest running the MOSFET under load, see how hot they get and then decide if you feel like you will need a heat sink or not. There is no hard and fast rule.

Re: H-bridge cannot reset properly &how to stack two H-bridges together

Hi Dominix, This isn't a problem it is the way it is designed. At a really basic level that H-Bridge works by receiving commands from the Arduino telling it which way it should direct the motor outputs. Each H-Bridge is obviously identical meaning that when you stack the shields the same signals fro...

For anyone else wondering, this issue has been fixed. The classic case of using the wrong example code ;)
