I'm currently preparing for my first Arduino project. I'd like to convert my standard desk to an adjustable standing desk with the use of two linear actuators. This is the actuator I will be using Actuator. I know progressive automations provides a motor control box that would easily accomplish what I desire, but I figured it'd be neat for me to get into Arduino!
For the linear actuators, I don't require speed control. All I want to do is, with the press of a button, raise the desk platform to the height which I find most comfortable, and then be able to reset the height back to 0 with the press of another button.
My problem lies within the DC motors in the actuators and how much voltage and current they will require. The motors require 12V and 12A under full load. I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to what all types of electrical components there are, so I sure would appreciate some help with getting started on the power situation.
I'm planning on using the Uno R3.
Also, I've attached a picture of the desk with the actuators in place.
