Hi there, working on a project that I'm going to run a pair (maybe 4 later) of cordless drill motors (currently out of 2 dewalt drills I got used from the hardware store "broken" when 1 trigger was gone and the other the handle was cracked, http://www.factoryauthorizedoutlet.com/dewalt/products/DC730KA.asp?gclid=CNSumJWQwa4CFYXe4Aod0TW5Ow for the model)
Was considering this controller http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/1376 cause I'm not gonna be running them too hard and according to the info on the drills they output ~300 watts. So some math and later we find that its a little more than 20 amps running through it. That's above the spec for continuous running for the controller, but they're only gonna be running at a pretty low torque, And I was gonna rig up a couple of heat-sinks to keep it safer.
Now would that be feasible, or should I go for a controller with a bit more powa? Any recommendations on a cheaper controller too?
Edit. Oh yeah, for the powersources for the motors, I was just gonna hook up a regular cordless drill battery for the power (or perhaps 2 in parallel for each motor so they don't need to be changed as often).
