Hi everyone .....
Is anyone familiar with how to connect the 2.5 Amp Motor Controller to the TCHANG DD1-1 Tank Track Chassis? The only paperwork I received with the DD1-1 is basically a description of the chassis. I appreciate it. Thanks you.

Thank you for responding, sorry it took a while to get the pictures. I tried to capture them with some detail. I appreciate any help you might give. Thanks again - Dave
Please, I bought one Tchang Dd1-1 Tank Track Chassis but I don't receive a manual, could you help me with simple questions?
I would like to make it works with an arduino uno board.
- the VCC pin is 5 Volts, correct?
- the 1B and 1A pins are the engine directions (back/forward)? Could I connect Arduino 5V output directly?
Thanks for any help.
Second: Sorry for posting in this forum, i don't have any ez-robot board or anything, i'm an Arduino user, but i was searching info about the TChang connection and i found this forum and, once i figured out how to connect the TChang i must share this with the internet community.
The TChang DD1-1 has two half-H Bridge integrated (one in each side), so you don't need a Motor Shield or H-Bridges (like the L293 or L298). You can connect it directly to the Arduino or any arduino-like microcontroller board.
The basic connection is very simple:
IB Digital Pin (Forward)*
IA Digital Pin (Backward)*
*[/b I asume the yellow motor side is the rear
[b]** I think the Speed Pin is only for control. This pin shows the motor encoder data (amount of steps). I don't test it yet, but i think it can be read with a digitalRead.
To move the TChang you must:
turn on the digital pin for the IB
turn off the digital pin for the IA
or vice-versa, depending of the movement you want to do.
Hope this help somebody.
you welcome (de nada), if you need an example for arduino, ask me.
what kind of battery do you suggest?
Thanks in advance.
So you use 6 x1.2V 2000mah for the motors e and a 9V battery for the arduino board.
And I presume you connect both GND pins, correct?
