I am new to arduino. Recently purchased motor shield V1.0 which have two l293 and can run 4 DC motors simultaneously. But here the problem comes: when I purchased the shield I was not aware that it can only supply 2A peak current. However, my DC motor rating is 12v 5A. So I purchased a 12v 5A power supply. But now I am not sure to operate shield with external power of 12v 5A.
Does it works or will it burn?
