SimStack Motor Driver Expansion Board

The SimStack Motor Driver Expansion board has been created to allow the control up to 8 small DC motors. This is a very flexible board that can find many different and innovative uses in any simulator. Up to four of these boards can be stacked on top of a SimStack Foundation Board or other SimStack Expansion boards.

Each motor can be controlled in speed and direction as well as being commanded to freewheel and brake, depending on the requirements.
