Brushless Motor and two Brushed Motor Driver Shields


Hey Everyone,

I am working on a project and I bought two Pololu Dual VNH5019 Motor Driver Shields used to control bushed DC motors. unfortunately I did not check my motor and I found out later it is a brushless motor.

Is it possible to stack my two Pololu Dual VNH5019 Motor Driver Shields and then be able to drive a brushless motor?




Hello, Zach.

As you mentioned, the VNH5019 motor driver shield is meant for driving brushed DC motors. It might be possible to control a brushless motor using your VNH5019 motor driver shields, but I recommend switching to a driver that was designed for brushless motors. Unfortunately, we do not have any controllers for brushless motors.
