Solarbotics L293D Secret Motor Driver Kit (1.2A 5V-12V)

Want to turn a servo into a more powerful gear motor? The Secret Motor Driver Kit replaces the guts of a standard servo with a logic-signal friendly L293D motor driver chip! The SGS Thompson L293D is configured to provide up to 1.2A and 36V - much higher than what a standard servo electronics are designed for!

This kit is tucked inside a standard servo body, like our GM4 clear servo gear motor. The indicator LEDs on the kit also make for a cool light show in the clear servo case, or as part of a breadboard-mounted motor driver.

Don't want to drive a servo? We don't blame you! Use the Secret Motor Driver to power any of our gear motors!
