HeyIve been reading a lot on here and i feel as if i have confused myself as to where to go now.Here is the link to the dc motor I'm using https://www.amazon.com/AmpFlow-G43-500-Brushed-Electric-Motor/dp/B00D3ORSPAIm going to use an external power source to supply the voltage to it. I want to use the arduino as a switch for it to turn on/off. I need help on what exactly I need to do so and what other components if necessary.Also if i did want to control the speed of the motor what other components would i need to do so?
This might be a dumb question but could i use a relay set up in normally open configuration and use the arduino to close the relay with a wireless controller? I'm not positive if this would work but just thought i would throw it out there.
After doing more research the spec sheet for that motor that was on amazon was wrong. It is 27 amps at its peak not its continuous.
