Circuits Designed by Dave Johnson, P.E. :

  • Alternating CW & CCW Motor Driver -  A while back a company needed a motor controller for a custom door latching system.   The system used a small brush motor with a speed reduction gear to both latch and unlatch the door.   When pulsed for about 250ms in the clockwise direction, the motor would unlatch the door . . .

  • Control both Power & Direction of a DC Motor -  TTL type Q and inverted Q inputs control a classic H-bridge circuit, rated at 50 volts and about 10 amps. The circuit can control power and direction of a DC motor . . . [Hobby Circuit designed by David Johnson P.E.,  02/04/07]

3Amp-DCC Booster Circuit #1 (LMD 18200) -  The first schematic is for a basic 3 Amp - DCC Booster using the LMD 18200 CMOS, H-Bridge. Included in the design is a 5Volt regulator that supplies power to the DCC signal generation and display circuitry.

4-transistor H-bridge -  An interesting 4-transistor H-bridge variant; this is cheap and easy to build, and best of all is "smokeless" (i. e. , no combination of inputs can cause the bridge to self-destruct). . . .  [Steve Bolt]

6-transistor H-bridge -  This issix transistor "Tilden style" H-bridge; while not as old asoriginal "basic H-bridge," this goes "way back," and isbasis for many BEAM driver circuits. . .  [Wilf Rigter's web site]

Comparator Controlled H-Bridge Circuits (LM311) -  Circut three and four are simple Bi-Polar H-Bridge circuits. The bridges are controlled by a pair of LM311 voltage Comparators. The LM311 Voltage Comparator has several unique features, one of which is an output transistor with an open emitter as well as the typical open collector. This allows the output transistor of the comparator to sit between the bases of the power transistors. The LM311 Voltage Comparator also has a STROBE input that will turn off the output regardless of input conditions. The circuit is shown in two configurations. The first is a typical two input bridge. The second circuit has a single - duplex input that would be used for model railroad "DCC" control applications.  This page has several circuitsplease scroll down to these. . .  [from Rob Paisley's Model Train web site]

DC Motor-Driver H-Bridge Circuit -  Physical motion of some form helps differentiate a robot from a computer. It would be nice if a motor could be attached directly to a chip that controlled the movement. But, most chips can't pass enough current or voltage to spin a motor. Also, motors tend to be electrically noisy (spikes) and can slam power back. . .  [David Cook]

DCC Booster Circuit #2 (LMD 18200) -  The second schematic is for a 3 Amp - DCC Booster with automatic shutdowns for DCC signal failure and high current loads. This circuit also uses the LMD 18200 CMOS, H-Bridge.

Full-featured Dual H-bridge -  I had always assumed that dynamic braking would be most effective at higher speeds. However, actual tests using a Faulhaber (micro mo) gearmotor showed that the brake would hold a motor almost stationary. These gearmotors are so well made that I can turn the 4 mm diameter shaft with light finger pressure. For the tests I had mounted a 90 mm diameter wheel, which gave me tremendous mechanical advantage. I found with the wheel mounted that I could barely turn the motor against the brake. . . .  [Bruce Robinson]

Full-featured H-bridge -  This is a slightly revised version of the 6-transistor H-bridge designed by Mark Tilden and found on the BEAM Tek website (now only available via archive). I encourage anyone interested in H-bridges to read Mark's article, as it gives an excellent step-by-step explanation of how the bridge works. In particular, it discusses variations on the bridge, such as the positive-input and negative-input versions. The basic circuit is as Mark describes it. The changes are as follows. . . .  [Bruce Robinson]
