    Hi all,

    I am looking at adjusting my setup and I’m looking at motor options. Currently I have a 2DOF arduino MM (single MM board) setup using 2 x wiper motors.

    One option I have is going to some 24V motors. Can I run 2 x 24V motors off a single MM board? I’ve seen some data sheets where it says max voltage is 16V so I’m guessing it would be frowned apon.

    Do people run 24V motors through MM boards at all?

    I don’t have the coin at the moment to go out and buy new boards like the JRK :( :( :(

    Thanks in advance

    You would be better off with a sabertooth for 24v, MMs are not suitable.
