Specs for the motors:
At 3VDC we measured 150mA @ 120 RPM no-load, and 1.1 Amps when stalled.
At 4.5VDC we measured 155mA @ 185 RPM no-load, and 1.2 Amps when stalled
At 6VDC we measured 160mA @ 250 RPM no-load, and 1.5 Amps when stalled.
I was looking around for some motor drivers to drive 4 of those motors. I'm planning to go with the L293D (which I already have 1 of, so I would only need 1 more) or DRV8833 (which I would need 2 of).
I'm sure that the DRV8833 is definitely capable of driving those motors, but I'm not sure about the L293D (which would be preferable considering its price and that I need only one more)
According to the specifications of the L293D motor driver on the website, these seem to be able to drive motors below 600mA, which I believe should be fine for the motors, however, it lists that it can handle a peak of only 1.2A, but the motors states that it can go up to 1.5A of current when stalled at 6VDC (not sure what stalled current means, exactly, but it's bugging me a bit).
Would the L293D be just fine for this or would, say, the DRV8833 be a bit more suitable for the motors? Would appreciate any help, thanks!
