I am trying to send 10v through a nichrome wire whenever I push a momentary switch (to generate heat, if that's important) and I was not sure how to go about this.
I learned (from these forums!) how to execute code after a push of the switch, but i'm not sure on what hardware to use to send 10v on command.
I've only ever used servos with a pwm shield, and I am thinking that I could possibly use a motor drive shield to accomplish this, but I would definitely love some input, especially on safety and circuit protection since the wire needs to get a little bit hot, and I wouldn't want to melt or send too much voltage to my lovely little arduino (I've already burned one out trying to learn how to step down voltage for a robot!)
Thank you for your time!
