Topic: how to switch on a 12V motor with arduino? (Read 412 times) previous topic - next topic

I'm using a Lithium Ion  battery of 12V to power on Arduino.
How to use that same battery to turn on the 12 V motor ?
I want to turn on the motor by arduino when i press a switch or button.
The battery can provide 3A current whereas motor only requires a 1.5A current.
I know the programming. But I dont know how to set up the electronics needed.

I'm new to electronics..
Please help.

Google 'Arduino transistor' to see how to use an NPN transistor and a resistor to switch large currents (> 30 mA) and/or high voltages (> 5V).

Please provide links to the battery and the motor...  We will just be guessing otherwise.

Is that 1.5A rating for the motor the no-load current, full-load current or stall-current?

Do you mean 11.1V lithium battery?  Does the battery have built-in protection circuitry?
