๐Ÿ˜” Guess you are right. Isn't there any other way in which i can run the motor?


As this is an academic project, do you really need a motor ?
Can you use another way to indicate a door being unlocked.. say an LED ?

Getting a motor to go one way then the other is quite difficult.
You can use relays,but I assume you don't have any.
The L293 chip is the simplest way.

How much current does your motor draw ?


Actually i was thinking about converting the project into a Society Car parking system. So a door opening and closing would look better than just an led. The motor is the one used in toys and stuff. Can't be more than 5v.

" The motor is the one used in toys and stuff.
Can't be more than 5v."

In that case connect the + and - connections on the new board
to 5 volts and ground. No 12 volts anywhere.

Your driver board is limited to 600 milliamps (just over half an amp).
A toy motor could exceed that, but should be okay.
Use as small a motor as possible.

You could use relays, which survive mistakes, and handle
bigger motors, but will be more complicated.

I don't have a new board. And there is Vcc and + and - pins. On supplying 5v to all three pins and Gnd to Gnd, the programming board's led lights up but not the display. I suppose i may have damaged it when i first gave 12v to Vcc before. I guess now i will either have to buy a new l293d board or just use leds as you mentioned.

Okay, i have got my hands on a 12V relay driver IC. I have no idea on how to connect it with the motor. What are the connections and what changes do i have to make to the program code?

I have connected the pins in proteus and used the same code that i have posted before to run this simulation.
On running the simulation, the motor just starts and keeps on running. What do i have to do to make it run only when i scan a valid rfid tag?

Your simulation uses a relay.
Do you have a relay...if so what model is it ?
If you don't have the right relay your motor can only go one way.
Is that okay .. stop and start, but only in one direction ?

Meanwhile, remove the connection from U2 pin 16 to ground.

It's a single chanel relay. ๐Ÿ˜” I guess it won't work. Isn't there a way where i make it rotate in both directions, by giving different commands? Please help me with the codes. I have managed to sort out the connections, tell me if it's right. + and - to 5v and Gnd. NO to the motor and the other end of the motor should be connected to negative of the battery. COM would be connected to the positive of the battery.

There is, but you need the right hardware.
There are many combinations of relays, drivers and simple transistors.
It depends on what you have or can get.

Are you able to get a 5 or 12 volt, double throw double pole relay
or more single pole relays as in the Proteus simulation ?
If you use a motor you also have to consider what happens
at end of travel.
When raising or lowering an arm you normally need limit switches
to know when to stop.

Normally door locks don't use a motor,they use one of these locks
operated by a coil like a relay.

Electric Strike for Door Entry Access Control Systems
much like a relay.

I said it before, i have changed the project to secure car access system in a Society, so i think the door(which is just a long rod or something) opens horizontal to vertical and back again, uses a motor. ๐Ÿ˜…Goodness so now i need a limit switch too in addition to another relay. I can't get my hands on one. The shop which sells these things is very far away from my home and no one is ready to travel that far again. I thought connecting a relay would be easy, but it's even harder than the motor driver ic. If only the motor driver worked, it would have been great. I suppose now i am stick with led. ๐Ÿ˜”

>I said it before, i have changed the project to secure car access system
Actually you said you were "thinking" of changing to a secure car access system.

>Goodness so now i need a limit switch too
No, you will need two limit switches.

>now i am stick with led.
You could have two LEDs, one for motor forward, one for back.

You unlock the car with an RFID key.
How do you lock it ?

sir could please send the code for I2C and wifi interfacing with 8051

Does anyone have microcontroller programming software for STC15F104W (core 8051, 4 k, 128 byte, 6 I/O pin, UART ... DIL8), that works?

Hi I am looking for a assembly language program for a digital decimal counter. Time counts max limit of 2 mins starting from 2.00 mins and ending at 0.00. time is to be displayed on 4 7-segment LED displays. Edsim51 simulator to be used. Thanks

Is it possible to send multiple messages using only 1 GSM module?
