Heatsink on motor drive

Hi guys need to climb into your brains a bit ;D

I ordered a 14amp motor drive which the company cannot supply now and I cant wait anymore, so they have a motor drive that can supply 12amps continuous and 30amps for a few seconds.

My motors pulls about 9amps when free running and if i grab the wheel quite hard and force the motor to nearly stop it pulls about 16amps.

What i want to know is there anything i can do too the 12amp motor drive to make it work?

Maybe add heatsink or something?

Many thanks M.........

That sounds like you'll be in-spec unless you are stalling the motor frequently or starting/stopping frequently.

If it has to be "foolproof", of course you need a driver rated for 16A continuous.

Ok cool thanks, will it help at all to put heatsinks on?

Its just a prototype so I can get the correct driver later just dont want to get this one and it burns out in the first 5min.

Thanks.
