I am trying to control a DC motor I have around to use in a small vehicle. I measured it's resistance with my multimeter and I get around 2.6Ohms. I connected the motor to a 12V power supply and measured the current, I got around 0.6A when it was running in air and 3.7A when it was stalled. So something like a L298N should be ok, since it handles up to 4A, right? Are there any better alternatives? Also, I won't be running it at full speed since it will be too fast and will go from wall to wall so I need some kind of speed control.
Any advice on running this motor would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance.
