This is a retired product, but fear not as there is a newer, better version available: DEV-10618

Replacement: DEV-10618. The new version of this board has a protection diode on the power input. This page is for reference only.
Description: This shield allows you to use a computer power supply (or other power source) to use your Arduino to switch high current. With RFP30N06LE MOSFETS, you can easily control a lot of current directly from your Arduino.
The board provides 6 PWM outputs via screw terminals. Check the datasheet for the MOSFET below for full specifications on how much current this board can handle.This board is a very easy way to start using MOSFETS for your next high current project.
Note: If you want to stack another shield on top of this one, you will want to double-up on the stackable headers to clear the MOSFETs.
