    @Pit

    Hi,

    I am using B configuration but something strange happens:
    I have been testing it for about 4 hours, one of the ibt2 is so hot while the other one is ccompletly cold.
    I think that both bridges should be more or less at same temperature, as i have understood one ibt2 works when motor is turning clockwise and the otherone when it is turning anticlockwise. is it right?

    Regards
