Build a "Full-Bridge" with two or more Half-Bridge to control the direction of a DC motor

Hi everyone,

I recently bought this H-Bridge to control a 12V actuator with my Arduino, but I’ve realized that this H-Bridge is an “Half Bridge” and not a “Full Bridge”, so I can’t control the direction of the motor and I need my actuator to deploy and retract obviously.

My question is: Is there a way to create a “Full-Bridge” by joining two of them or something like that? And be able to control the direction of my actuator.

Thank you very much!

Hello @aserrano96,

Please check this article about the parallel configuration of H-bridges and how to connect two half H-bridges together.
