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.  When spun in the opposite direction for 250ms, it would latch the door. The circuit below performs this function.  A single low power pushbutton is used to alternate between the two directions.  The circuit is powered by 4.5v using a battery made from three alkaline AA cells.  The motor draws about 250ma. The battery should provide many years of service.
  • Low Voltage H-bridge
    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. (added 7/06)

"H" Bridge Direct Current Motor Control Circuit (LM311) -  This page features H-Bridge circuits used for controlling direct current motors. Several designs are shown using both CMOS and Bi-Polar power devices….scroll to view all of the circuits…. [from Rob Paisley's Model Train web site]
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….  This page features H-Bridge circuits used for controlling direct current motors - scroll to find this one…. [from Rob Paisley's Model Train web site]
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  bridge to self-destruct).  (added 7/06)
6-transistor H-bridge -  This is  six transistor "Tilden style" H-bridge; while not as old as  original "basic H-bridge," this goes "way back," and is  basis for many BEAM driver circuits (added 7/06)

Better MOSFET H Bridge -  (schematic / circuit added 6/07)
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 applicationsThis page has several circuits.....please scroll down to these.....
