34186Re: [beam] H_Bridge
- Mar 1 1:46 PMI just made a post regarding using relays as the high side switching
element for an H-bridge. I got to thinking (always a dangerous thing!) and
realized that one probably does not need (or want) an electronic braking
mode when driving the motors. If this is the case, one could use a single
SPDT relay for the HI-side with 2- LO-side FETs. Further - if you made it
so that the relaxed position of the relay was forward, the relay would
consume power only while in reverse mode.
The obvious extension to this is to go back to Brett Paulin's suggestion of
a single DPDT relay with a single LO-side FET switch. If one takes care to
change the relay position only while the FET was off, a tiny DPDT DIP relay
would probably work just fine.
