I'm fairly new to arduino and tinkering with electrical circuits so any help regarding my project that i am trying to accomplish would be really appreciated.
I am attempting to control two linear actuators both 12VDC (no current rating specified) (http://www.trossenrobotics.com/store/p/5186-10-Inch-Stroke-110-LB-Linear-Actuator-with-Feedback.aspx
) with a dual H bridge (http://www.trossenrobotics.com/store/Search.aspx?searchTerms=dual+h+bridge&submit=true
) with both actuators subjected to ~ 50 lbs force (push and pull) at the same time. I am confused about couple of things.
1) what current requirement does the linear actuators have to run at its full speed ? (since the datasheet doesn't say anything i am confused about power selection)
2) Does the h bridge i have selected fulfill the current and voltage requirements for driving both actuators at the same speed ? do i need to custom build it? or is there any other kind in the market that i could use.
3) and also, what kind of power supply will i need ? ( adaptor selection???)
