I have been reading for hours now on the forum and various places around the web, but still can't seem to find the exact answer.
My DC motor http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/DAYTON-DC-Motor-3LCH7?Pid=search
is going to be powered by http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/RAYOVAC-Lantern-Battery-5U056?Pid=search
I have the Arduino already, but my problem comes because the motor runs at 3.8a continuously and I dont want to burn out the Arduino since the whole thing would be running continuously for many hours per day
I will also be connecting an H-Bridge to it since I need the motor to go both clockwise and counterclockwise
Thanks for anyone that could help out at all.
