SODAQ GROVE-FET

What is the Grove-Fet?

The Grove-Fet is a Grove-module that is able to switch loads on or off. The switching is done by a N-channel MOSFET. The module grants the ability to switch a high current with a logic level signal (3.3V to 5V ).

Characteristics:

Max power supply voltage = 30V
Max current = 10A

How can I use the Grove-Fet?

In this example the Grove-Fet is used with a Sodaq Autonomo. The Autonomo is an Arduino compatible development board. The module is being fed with 3.3V from the Autonomo and has an LED as load. The Grove-Fet is controlled by digital pin D7. When D7 is high, the MOSFET will conduct and the LED will be lit.

Example code:

void setup() {
  pinMode(7,OUTPUT);
}

void loop() {
  digitalWrite(7,HIGH);
  delay(1000);
  digitalWrite(7,LOW);
  delay(1000);
}
