Hey everybody,

I have the Pololu MD01B that I was going to use with a project way back when and was thinking about using two of them to drive the motors for my soccer bot. The problem is I can,t seem to get it working. What is the code used to turn the motor CW and CCW. Thank you and talk to you later.

It's PWM - just like a servo. Have you tried hanging it on a servo controller?

I'd say something like APPROXIMATELY 1500uS center point, above that is forward, below is backward. Once you get it working, you'll of course have to trim it out.

i would code to it like i would for a servo right? Pin high, delay, pin low right? loop

EDIT: After JonHylands was patient enough to help me understand how to use the VNH2SP30 and a about 30 minutes of troubleshooting some wiring issues I've got it to work. YA me. Unfortunately, the motors I have right now are PC fans and they seem to only go one way.... I am going to hack one of them up and see if I can get it to spin both ways. Thanks again to JonHylands.

I have attach the code for viewing.
