Have been posting about this project using these motors:
For the project I’ve been working on the shape of the motors is very nice. THe speed however is best when I run them at 3 volts of power from my regulated supply. I also have noticed that they don’t heat up as much. I did a test without arduino and ran the motor for 8 hours without stop to see if I would run into any problems, all is well so far.
I’m wondering since the installation I am working on requires that the motors be turned on and off in patterns over the course of 2 weeks 8 hours a day, if there is any reason that running these little motors on lower then suggested voltage is a bad idea.
thanks for all the help again!
