This is my first post on these forums and I am currently seeking help on a school project of mine. I want to make a small device that can be stuck to a window and with the push of a button it starts a cycle where a dc motor moves a squeegee on a pulley system vertically up and down while simultaneously engaging a small pump to spray windex. I currently have these parts for the project:
- Arduino Uno & Breadboard
(Chinese pump taken from swiffer wetjet)
- L298 bridge IC (Controller, info attached)
From what I see right now I have to somehow wire both a motor and the pump to activate with a switch, make the pump turn on and off, and the motor turn both directions at different speeds. I already have some code attached that was from a dc motor tutorial with Arduino; not sure if this can be used at all with my project. As of right now I have a PVC base built with the pulley but need to figure out the wiring and tubing.
I still haven’t determined a motor too but but ideally I want a high torque, low speed kind of deal. No more than 50 rpm. This is now where I ask for help, how to I wire and code what I have to make my idea work? Also what sort of motor do you all recommend? I am sorry if I didn’t explain well and I am here for any clarification.
