I’m building an obstacle avoidance robot and would like some clarification on safe operation limits.
Li-Ion battery pack has a max discgarge rating of 5A via the internal PCB.
The motor spec sheet shows a 2.2A stall current.
My question is ; how much buffer should be between stall current and max discharge current?
As much as I’d like to avoid stalling the motors there’s always a potential for it to happen.
Are there options for limiting the stall current? Such as a current sensing response? If the motors stall I would like to have the robot be able to react to it.
Will the battery PCB only allow 5A discharge or will reaching 5A shut something off?
Also I’m using this motor driver.
Looking forward to learning some more great insight from the community !
