SparkFun DEV-10182 Monster Moto Shield

This is essentially a ramped up version of our Ardumoto motor driver shield. For this monster shield we’ve replaced the L298 H-bridge with a pair of VNH2SP30 full-bridge motor drivers. We’ve also beefed up the support circuitry so this board is capable of driving a pair of high-current motors! The VIN and motor out are pitched for our 5mm screw terminals (not included), making it easy to connect larger gauge wires.

Note: When using this board in extreme high-demand applications it may be necessary to improve thermal performance with a heat-sink or fan and to solder the wires directly to the board instead of using a screw terminal (in addition to the myriad other complications present in a high-current system) However, when using the board at currents up to 6A the chips will barely become noticeably warm.


  • Voltage max: 16V
  • Maximum current rating: 30 A
  • Practical Continuous Current: 14 A
  • Current sensing available to Arduino analog pin
  • MOSFET on-resistance: 19 mO (per leg)
  • Maximum PWM frequency: 20 kHz
  • Thermal Shutdown
  • Undervoltage and Overvoltage shutdown

Great kit, watch out for clones!

This Monster Moto shiled is a great bit of kit, the drivers have incredible drive capabilities.

Before purchasing the Monster Moto shield I initially purchased what I thought was one on eBay, it turned out to be a clone, and a very bad one at that. neither of the drivers worked and I subsequently found lots of people with the same issue on-line.. Beware, buy cheap buy twice!
