Gertboard-Pi Potentiometer Controlled Motor

  In the potmot (for potentiometer-motor) test we use a potentiometer (“pot”) connected to the analogue to digital converter (A/D) to get an input value, and this value is used to control the speed and direction of the motor. It is set up so that at one extreme, the motor is going at top speed in one direction, as you move the wiper towards the middle it slows, at the middle the motor stops, and as you ...

Raspberry Pi Control Motor Speed

Controlling a motor is one of the most exciting things you can do with your Raspberry Pi. Motors are power-hungry components. They often require more power than the 3V3 your Raspberry can provide. That’s the reason we will connect the motor to a external power source (battery). You can use the same techniques described in this tutorial to work with any component, which requires external power source. Buildi ...

Dual DC motor control using pwm with the Raspberry Pi

This project uses two IRF 630 MOS-FET transistors for pulse width modulation and two relays to change the direction of the two motors. . The circuit diagram is below. The two IRF 630 MOS-FETs are connected to the GPIO 15 and 18 pins of the Pi. GPIO 24 and 23 are used to switch the relays. As the RISC OS version of the Raspberry Pi does not have a PWM output (as yet), the signals at GPIO 15 and GPIO 18  need ...

Driving a bi-polar stepper motor with the SN754410NE double H-bridge and a Raspberry Pi

Bi-polar stepping motors use only two coils and are easily recognized because they only have four wires. Most unipolar steppers can be used in bipolar mode by ignoring the two centre taps. Because bi-polar stepping motors produce the rotating magnetic field by reversing the current in both coils, controlling them is much more complicated than controlling their unipolar cousins. My circuit makes use of a SN7 ...

Control stepper motors with Raspberry Pi and node.js

Continuing the journey on how to control things with node.js on the Raspberry Pi I set up 2 stepper motors and controlled them in real time with Hydna. You can can read futher on how to install Hydna on Raspberry Pi here. The to pins that controls the motors in this diagram are pin number 16(GPIO 23) and pin number 18(GPIO 24). Pin number 18 controls the direction of the motor and pin number 16 the speed. W ...

Motor Protection against Single Phasing and Overheating

The rise in temperature level of a motor during its operation beyond a permissible limit is known as overheating. The causes of motor overheating are motor overloading, distortion in the supply voltage, impaired cooling capability, unbalanced supply voltages etc. Because of overheating, we can face the problems such as Electrical fire, Insulation failure, Decrease in life time of motor due to earlier wear a ...

Controlling a Servo Motor

Assembly The servo motors have three pins, two for power: red(+) and black (-), and one for control. Because the servo motor draws too much energy, we need to use the batteries to power the servo (the Raspberry Pi doesn't have so much power. if you try to use the 5V power of the raspberry pi, you may freeze your Raspberry Pi). The red (+) of the batteries are connected to the red (+) cable of the servo, and ...
