I want to look at making a simple linear motion project. All I want to do is run a carriage up along a length of steel.
JB Weld (best 2-part epoxy in the world!)
So having said that what type of encoder do I need. I see the quadrature encoders are talked about, don't know what they are exactly though. How many count encoder would I need for this project?
Now I see dc gear motors online, but now how much power do I need.
What about the issue of "gear train damage might occur if the motor is stalled?
