Hello - I am looking to control multiple electromagnets with a Seeeduino v4.2 board. The Grove electromagnet has a working voltage of 400 mA but the output of the Seeeduino board is only 40 mA. I am considering two options:
- Using the DC outputs on the Seeeduino board to drive the Grove electromagnets. However, I can only control one electromagnet per board. I could use multiple boards.
- Pairing the Seeeduino board with a SeeedStudio - Motor Shield V2.0 board - which gives me the capability to control two electromagnets. Is this option feasible or am I missing something?
Any other suggestions? I am relatively new to all this and do not fully understand the nuances of electrical circuits.
