I would like to control a 4x4 winch motor (6hp DC motor) with an Arduino and possibly a motor driver.
A typical winch DC motor draws 400 Amps under high load, which is very high. I have found quite a few motor drivers online rated up to 100 Amps, however nothing for controlling this winch motor. I am going to be taking the winch off the 4x4 winch "setup" and using the winch motor alone without the large reduction gearbox.
I plan on using this winch motor because I have one and buying a new DC motor is very very expensive as Im sure you know.
Please could you offer some advice on controlling this motor?
