Okay, I am trying to interface my Arduino Duemilanove with a speed controller for a 12V DC Motor. My question is, can i interface this using PWM just as a servo or do i use a different method?
May we ask what sort of motor controller?
(R/C servos don't use PWM - did you mean PPM?)
well its possible to control motors using any h bridge ic to control the speed you should be more specific
i have been considering getting an h-bridge. Is that a good idea? Also the speed controller is a hobby R/C speed controller which plugs into a R/C receiver. Is that enough?
Is that enough?
Sure, just plug it into your RC receiver.
Okay! Sorry about the down time, i was away from my work station on vacation, and now im back. Anyways, The controller im using is a GEARS IDS III Speed Controller.
This is a PDF With plenty of info on it. http://www.gearseds.com/download.php?file=78
I need help with knowing how to hook it up.
Oh, and im using a Pittman Motor Specs: http://www.gearseds.com/files/PITTMAN_MOTOR_SPECS.pdf Pic: http://www.ametektip.com/components/com_catalog//Files/Images/Catalogs/LowRes/469006.jpg
:::EDIT::: Nevermind, i got it!
