The Motor Adapter for NI myRIO allows you to easily connect and control either one stepper motor, two DC motors, or two servos independently through the MXP connector on your myRIO. It has been designed so that no additional circuitry is required. Just supply power and you’re on your way!
Servo motors are connected via standard 3-pin headers while DC motors are connected via 6-pin or screw terminal connectors and stepper motors are connected using screw terminals. Two quadrature encoder inputs are accessible through the motor connector or through terminal blocks.
