L298 DC Motor Control: Data

Data & Observations
           Now that the pic is programmed with the software create & the circuit has been assembled it is time for testing! The video below shows probably exactly what you are expecting to see a motor running backward & forward at various speeds.

           The L298HN can control two dc motors simultaneously, so its application seen above shows only a tiny portion of what it is capable of. L298HN's are also good at controlling stepper motors, but that's for a future tutorial.

Setup Closeup

           This is just an additional closeup shot to help clear up any wiring questions you might have. Just 1 resistor, some wires & the rest of the components.
