Intent: I am working on a project in which I need to turn on two encoder motors for a certain number or revolutions stop for an amount of time then reverse the direction (opening and closing a hand valve). I was unaware of the power limitations of Arduino and am Curious how I can get 7 amps of current to my motors at 12 volt and still control through the Arduino.
*https://www.digikey.com/htmldatasheets/production/2063851/0/0/1/fit0185.html 2 45kgcm motors
voltage: 12v, stall current: 7 Amps
*Arduino uno rev 3
*Arduino motor shield rev 3 ( 2 amp max per channel, overlooked this spec initially)
*12v 20Amp power supply that plugs into the wall
My question: what would be the most simple piece of hardware (to supply 7A to each motor if need be) that I can purchase to make my project work as intended with the current hardware I have?
Any and all feedback is appreciated and I apologize if this has been discussed already feel free to direct me to past forums or sites that would be of use!
